What is Hitherby Dragons?

Hitherby Dragons is a story about the emptiness.

If you look out at the world, there’s a lot that you know. There’s a lot that you understand. But at the edge of your map, there’s emptiness.

There’s questions that are hard to answer.

There’s things that are hard to explain.

There’s choices that don’t make sense and there’s a sea of chaos and there’s emptiness.

So Jane goes to the edge of the world, where Santa Ynez touches on the chaos. She walks across the bridge to the abandoned tower of the gibbelins. Finding that its machinery is in recoverable order, she assembles a theater company of gods and humans to answer suffering.

Also they put on shows.

  1. It occurs to me now, having read Hitherby Dragons for many years, that I’ve never once desired to comment. Still, even now, I don’t. Not really. The problem is: what can you really say to mythology? A dwarf binds a storm by whisking a duck, which is bad, and that’s how it is. Reading all of this has made me a noticeably better person than I otherwise would have been, and I am crazy grateful for its existence. Thank you Jenna. That is all.
