It began as just another evening of fantasy gaming with James, Karl, Andrea, and the rest ready to assume their various roles as wizard, cleric, warrior, or thief. But sorcerous gamemaster Professor Deighton had something else planned for this unsuspecting group of college students. And the "game" soon became a matter of life and death as the seven adventurers found themselves transported to an alternate world and into the bodies of the actual characters they had been pretending to be.
Cast into a land where magic worked all too well, dragons were a fire-breathing menace, and only those quick enough with a sword or their wits survived, the young gamers faced a terrible task. For the only way they would ever see Earth again was if they could find the legendary Gate Between Worlds - a place guarded by the most terrifying and deadly enemy of all....

Great Memories From My Teenage Years!
What did you love best about The Sleeping Dragon?
I first read this book as a kid and I loved the idea of it being based on kids playing a D&D like game and getting transported into it.
What other book might you compare The Sleeping Dragon to and why?
Dream Park by Larry Niven. It is another great example of people playing a role-playing game in real life.
Have you listened to any of Keith Silverstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Fantasy Becomes Reality!
Any additional comments?
If you are a lover of dungeons and dragons or role-playing games you will enjoy this book. I hope the other books in this series will be available soon.

Didn't enjoy the language and cruelty
What disappointed you about The Sleeping Dragon?
Crude language and content. Too much for me, probably not an issue for many listeners.
Would you be willing to try another book from Joel Rosenberg? Why or why not?
No. It all begins here. I expect more of the same.
Which character – as performed by Keith Silverstein – was your favorite?
They were all pretty good.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Sleeping Dragon?
I'd change the language and modify a few scenes.
Any additional comments?
Narrator was very good.
I also expect that listeners interested in following a D&D type story will like this.
