The Essential Training Guide for Young Dragon Fighters,
Based Wholly on the Practices of the Great Dragon Slayers
of Old and the Wisdom of Their Ancient Manual
by Sir Wyvern Pugilist
Well then, you have picked the right book.
My excellent and bestselling manual prepares YOU to engage the snarly and slimy beasts inhabiting our world. BUT BEWARE: This guidebook is only for those who are most serious about facing the malicious monsters head-on, and who intend to become certified Slayers in the Secret Order!
Get my book and join a host of young Slayers-in-Training who even now begin their lessons in:
- Wearing the Armor of the Mighty One
- Acquiring the knowledge of the Ancient Manual
- Meeting the Chief Dragon Slayer himself
- Identifying the most notorious dragon species, and strategies for fighting each
- Meeting the Senior Dragon Slayers of Old.
WHO IS SIR WYVERN PUGILIST?
It is I—brilliant trainer of an entirely new generation of Slayers! Few knights can claim my amazing credentials:
- Slayer of a thousand dragons (and counting)
- Experienced wearer of the Armor
- Long-time member of the Secret Order
- Advanced student of the Ancient Manual
- Personal friend of the Chief Dragon Slayer.
WHO IS JOYCE DENHAM?
No one special, really—not much of a Dragon Slayer (truth be told), but a middling editor and devoted “Public Relations Manager” (as she likes to call herself). It is she who reviews my excellent manuscripts and corrects my (very few) mistakes in spelling and diction. A mere proofreader. Except she does schedule my personal appearances (without her, I would double-book myself and would then need to appear in two places at once, which I cannot do). Occasionally, she repairs my armor and alerts me to attacks by Braggen, my nemesis (whose stinky breath assaults me even now). She’s really just . . . um . . . uh . . . well, okay, she’s indispensible to my work, and I here acknowledge her valuable contributions, even though she’s very much a behind-the-scenes person.
During your training, you will only occasionally encounter her name.
“Pugilist’s long-awaited book will prove to be the definitive guide for a new generation of Dragon Slayers.”
“For stories about dragons and dragon slayers, no book is more accurate or more filled with educational strategies for a new generation of knights.”
Joanne de Arc, Director Emeritus, French Institute for the Slaying of the Dragons
“Congratulations to Paraclete Press for successfully persuading Sir Wyvern to give us this new manual on Dragon Slaying! It is long overdue!
