"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

Like the previous books in the trilogy, I really liked this one. Tom Lichtenberg is a talented storyteller who does a great job of writing a fantastic mystery that continues to remain a mystery. In his bizarre and entertaining books, I don’t mind not knowing the answer, because the journey he gives is that good.
To complete the circle, ‘Dragon Town’ is told from Sapphire’s perspective, Alex Kirkham’s former childhood friend. (The first in the trilogy is told from Alex’s perspective, and the second is told from his brother’s perspective, Argus.) Sapphire arrives on location to report about the sinkhole that swallowed the Sea Dragons Stadium. The mystery of the strange girl who insists on being called Nameless is the essential core of this story that will bring together the trilogy that began with ‘Snapdragon Alley’ and gives further light to its sequel ‘Freak City’.
