I saw a mass market paperback at a Waldenbooks in Texas in the early 1990's that was a collection of fantasy short stories, it had front cover art of a dragon or two (maybe green colored) but with very striking orange and black colored butterfly wings that looked like Monarch butterfly wings to me. I didn't buy the book and I have never seen it again even though I have done extensive searching online. I am pretty sure the book was stories by different authors and that it was published by one of the common fantasy book publishers. I would so appreciate your help so that I can find this book for its striking cover art.

  • The book "The Dragons at War" is not it. The dragon on the cover-art definitely had "butterfly" type orange and black wings. Although I can't remember a publisher it definitely was not TSR or else I would have bought it. I think that.the title of the book may have had the word "dreams" in it. I saw this book in the early 1990's probably before 1995. – MWA Jan 29 '18 at 4:15

  • Unfortunately "The City of Singing Flame" cover is not it. I have seen this book several times but the one I am trying to find I have only seen once. I thought it was a common publisher but after all the looking I have done I am now beginning to wonder.. – MWA Feb 3 '18 at 0:50
