A chapbook. Cover and interior illustrations by William Eakin.
Subterranean Press is proud to present this clever little tale by best-selling writer Tad Williams, featuring more than a dozen sepia toned illustrations by William Eakin.
You hold in your hand a sacred trust — a dragon’s diary. My diary. And that trust has been horribly violated by that dreadful Princess Lillian, or you wouldn’t be holding it. My own personal diary, published for all to see! That human female has no shame.
I do, however. I do not wish my secrets spread about. Please, I beg you, put this book down now and walk away, kind browser. Respect an old dragon’s privacy. No matter what the princess thinks, these matters of violence, blackmail, and unnecessary romance are not for the eyes of others!
No, no, don’t even open it! Ignore the attractive illustrations and the shockingly true secrets of dragon life. You’ll be sorry.
All right, you won’t. But I will.
I hate princesses.
