Man, I have such incredibly vivid memories of reading these dragon stories as a kid, especially the Stan Bolovan story. Wasn't this also the one with a Chinese story that included both a dragon and a giant centipede? I remember some line about an archer being told that the water from a man's mouth (spit) has great power, so he spit on his arrow and shot the giant centipede in the head killing it dead.

Yeah, these are really fucking great. Reminds me of that period of Disney animation indicative of "Sleeping Beauty" and "The Sorcerer and the Stone."
