Would any of the ones in "Dragons and Warrior Daughters" (ed. Jessica
Yates) be any good? Only I can't remember the titles and the book's at
home! There's one about a girl called Tansy who shows a hero how to
kill a dragon, and one about a dumb healer. They're probably in other
collections too, so if you think they might be any good and you don't
have the book, let me know and I will check the titles.
