Another series of short stories involving the world of Krynn, of which I have many of the series. A perfectly fine stand alone series, the stories are full of humor and adventure. The story Hearth Cat and Winter Wren is my favorite from this selection. Exploring the lives of adventurers as they are turned into animals while trying to save people from an evil wizard.

This second book of the Dragonlance Tales series has some good stories and some awful stories. Not quite as good as the first book because of the awful stories are really bad and I skipped over those as quickly as I could. The good stories leave you wanting more Dragonlance, so I will be reading the 3rd tales book. More comedic than anything, check out the story of Lord Toede and also the story with the Majere brothers. ( )

This volume is an anthology of short stories as could be discerned by the name of the series: Tales. In the name of completeness, I'll give micro-reviews of the individual short stories here.

1) The Pied Kender
Tanis and Sturm are lost in a blinding blizzard, slowly freezing to death. Flint and Tas are waiting for them in a cabin. The only hope that Sturm and Tanis have resides in Tas' magical flute... If only he could get it to play...

2) Dalamar's Dwarven Buddy
Dalamar, chased by the Seekers, gets aided by a Dwarven hermit. In return for his aid, Dalamar leaves him some magical trinkets. Unfortunately, the dwarf's lust for magic isn't sated...

3) The Viral Storyteller
A common storyteller is captured by Kit's troops and she sentences him to death. He tells a story about the united forces of kender, gnomes and dwarves that rescue him. Or not. But his tales inspire another to tell more tales... and they tell friends, and they tell their friends...

4) Revenge
A very angry dragonarmy officer goes in search of an escaped barbarian slave only to find himself in the clutches of an old woman. An old woman that wants him to never leave.

5) Lord Toede's Wild Ride
Toede has two kender dead to rights... only one of them is the kender leader. So he chains them to a deer carcass and gives them a head start into the woods. What could go wrong?

6. Honor and Fish
A young Solamnic knight and a minotaur strike up a conversation about honor. But then a boat full of minotaurs arrive...

7. The Menagerie
A couple of evil wizards have change several inhabitants of Solace into animals. Where will the insanity stop?

8. By Reorx, I'll bet!
Palin, Talin, and Dwalin (err... Sturm) are off on a merry adventure when they get catch the short end of a bad wager with a dwarf. A very garish dwarf. Who leads them on a quest. Of sorts. Gnomes and barbarians and harem girl, oh my!

9. Gnomish Revisionist History
A gnomish version of several events in the Chronicles. Blah. Kinda funny, but terrible boring.

10. Feeder, Feeder, Heartsblood Eater...
A sentient (just barely) dagger (but not really) has a slightly different perspective on some of the early events of the Chronicles. If it wasn't so stupid, it could have had a serious effect on the War of the Lance.
