Actually, Flight of Dragons was cobbled together out of the book Flight of Dragons and another book, The Dragon and The George by Gordon R. Dickson.
From what I understand, Flight of Dragons was a mock scientific study of dragons and most of the information about how they fly and their ability to breath fire comes from that. I've never read it.
Gorbash, Smrgol, the Ogre of Gormley Keep, Bryagh, S. Carolinus, Danielle, Giles, Aragh the wolf and Sir Brian Neville-Smythe (both of whom had their names changed, but were still basically the same characters) were from the Dragon and the George along with the notion of the main character (here renamed after the author of Flight of Dragons) being trapped in Gorbash's body. Some of the characters were almost entirely changed though; anybody who mocked the book's Carolinus for instance would have had a lot of time to reconsider their actions as a beetle.

I feel like a heel, because I never read the Chronicles of Narnia. Tolkien's works, yes, some othe books by Lewis, yes, but not Narnia._
_I've been letting my sister borrow my copies; right now, you can get a box set of all seven books fairly cheaply or even an omnibus edition of all seven for about twenty dollars.
As far as the books go, eh, it's kind of a tossup.
They're very well-written, but far, far too often the feeling I got is that Lewis realized that he had reached a certain length and decided to wrap things up as quickly as possible.
It's kind of a "Where the hell is the rest of the book?" situation. Was for me anyway._
