Praise for Peter Straub and Floating Dragon
"Here is a novel guaranteed to double the national nightmare quotient, so watch out."--Cosmopolitan "Buy it today. Anything by Straub is worth several thousand John Sauls and a million V.C. Andrewses."--Philadelphia Inquirer "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 stream from a witch's cauldron."--Book World
