Tea With the Black Dragon, R.A. MacAvoy
Would I have liked this if I read it as a child? Maybe? There’s so little here to sink one’s teeth into, despite it being a Hugo/Nebula nominee in the 1980s. Where some have found greatness, I found….insipid dialogue, foolish characters, and a plot that just wasn’t compelling. Also, it’s not a book, it’s a novella (barely). It’s funny how for some, a book is a total win and then others are just left cold. I am definitely left cold, sorry to say. 1 star.
