of the book.   I know this is random, but I loved it and was hoping I could find it again to reread it.

I read it years ago and I believe it was a trilogy.  It feature a dragon in it and a knight.  Either the dragons name was George or the author was.  It was pure fantasy.

That's it!  You're awesome.  I can't believe you knew it from that random nonsense I posted.  Thanks so much.

You're welcome - the reason I remembered is because I just shipped out a copy :-)

I loved The Dragon and the George!  The sequel is called The Dragon Knight, but I can't remember the rest.  There are at least six books (since I had #6 ordered off my shelf a while back).

I checked and there are 9 now.  I read them in the mid 80's or so.  The last one was 2000, and he died in 2001.  :(  I had only read 3 and never realized there were more. 

I was hoping I could order a box set, but I guess most of them are too old.  I'm going to have to get them here.  I'm going to wait until I have more credits though so I don't use all of them.  I have almost 50 books on my wishlist.
