About book: The 3rd book in the Tales series and so far, imho, the best. Or least bad, however you see it. The focus lies on love and war, be that war as we know it or struggling with feelings or being trapped in a dangerous situation. Love prevails, be that love from a lover, friends, and so on. Several decent stories, though overall nothing extraordinary. There's stuff about dragons, stags, and even the Companions are featured (Goldmoon, Riverwind, Tasslehoff, Laurana, Raistlin, Caramon, ...). Yes, Raistlin apparently made love to someone and became a father. Not such a "wow" story, though. And there's even a telling about Huma against the Dark Queen. Makes me want to read the novel about Huma for a better impression, because the Tales one is rather poor. Michael Williams's effort.. I just couldn't finish it. Was it about Sturm getting killed by Kitiara on the tower? He wrote in such a way that it spoils all the fun. Just tell it like it is and don't use 2500 words to say it was war and war isn't fun. So, again, fairly decent offering, but like the others nothing outstanding.

4. Love and War edited by Margaret WeisGenre: FantasyPages: 365Acquired: Prior to 1999Book of Your Shelf? YesWhy I have/read it: Part of DragonLance world (rereading all), Third in a series, January 2011 TIOLISeries: DragonLance, Tales #3A book of short stories about...you guessed it....love and war, and occasionally both at the same time. Most of the stories were entertaining and a few were quite nice to read.I would not recommend this book/series as a place to start if you have not read any other DragonLance books, as you may not recognize the people or events. This would greatly take away from the stories. However, if you have read a few and you would like a quick peak into the characters' lives before and after their novel worthy deeds, I'm sure you would enjoy this.3/5

I don't remember much about this book; it may have been one of the few that I rented from they library, intead of owning. "A Painter's Vision" is fun, which is odd to say about something that's basically a tragic story, but I like the character of the fasion-obsessed dragon. I think I mostly loved this book for the beautiful cover art from "Raistlin's Daughter", even if I think the female character *may* have been a Mary Sue. **spoilers* Nothing too obnoxious, just a perfectly beautiful, fragile, mysterious, magical character who steps into the story long enough to make love to a main character, and then dies tragically.
