The Dancing Stones by Walter G. Esselman

There might be a lesson in this story, but it would probably only apply to young dragons.

Not much to it, but it was different. Cute, and fun to read.

The Sword and Sorcery is a good platform for fiction. Anything seems Okay in this sub-genre of
fantasy. The battles are usually personal, but the settings can be anything.

This is a good story in the Sword and Sorcery genre. It fits well within the definition, and demonstrated how something bizarre can be turned into a story.

I never read Sword and Sorcery but I should. I love Science Fiction and can never get the old- worn-out theme of the mad scientist in his basement creating something from blobs of animal or human remains. I also love anything dealing with space and time. Space travel fills my mind, it always did. Next to music, I at one time could not think of anything else.

The important thing about writing, it keeps the mind exploring beyond the borders of reason! And that is where the future belongs!

I like the idea of dancing stones protecting gold.

The characters' became real to me and that is a plus in any story. The dialogue also worked for me.

Good Job!

Keep up the good stories.
