Floating Dragon is a horror novel by American writer Peter Straub, originally published by Underwood-Miller in November and G.P. Putnam's Sons in February Author: Peter Straub. “A book that positively bubbles with invention, jammed with characters, color, events, hackle-raising twists of fate, horrific monsters, terrifying nightmares, and a reality that shimmers and shifts as much as the noxious steam from a witch’s cauldron.”.

But the fact is, Floating Dragon is approximately 30 lbs. of crazy stuffed into a 5 lb. sack. Unraveling it would take much more effort.
