I can't believe no one has yet mentioned Katherine Kerr's Deverry Series. One of my all time favourite series.

Deverry
1. Daggerspell (1986)
2. Darkspell (1987)
3. The Bristling Wood (1989) aka Dawnspell: The Bristling Wood
4. The Dragon Revenant (1990) aka Dragonspell: The Southern Sea

Deverry: The Westlands
1. A Time of Exile (1991)
2. A Time of Omens (1992)
3. Days of Blood and Fire (1993) aka A Time of War
4. Days of Air and Darkness (1994) aka A Time of Justice

Deverry: The Dragon Mage
1. The Red Wyvern (1997)
2. The Black Raven (1998)
3. The Fire Dragon (2000)

Deverry: The Silver Wyrm
1. The Gold Falcon (2006)
2. The Spirit Stone (2007)
3. The Shadow Isle (2008)
4. The Silver Mage (2009)

Enjoy

I finished the last book in Robin Hobb's: Rain Wild Chronicles. It was a good read (I think it would have been better if I had waited for all books to be released before I started). Now that all books in the series are released I can more easily recommend it.

The Dragonlance Chronicles should definitely give you your fix of dragons, and it is a relatively easy read (And a personal favorite). Legends you can skip if you only want dragons - While being an exceptionally good trilogy, it doesn't actually have any dragons in it. The Chaos War which follows, does have more dragons (Lave dragons!).

"Dragon Stones" Pricing

Amazon has a very good price for this book (around $3). The author's blog links to lulu where the epub costs three times as much, which I wasn't willing to spend on an unknown-to-me author. Couldn't find any epub source in Amazon's price range. Oh well.
Sorry to be so late noticing this post, but it reminded me that I've been rather neglectful of other e-book sources since the Kindle editions took off. I went back to Lulu, discovered that they've changed their minimum e-book pricing model, and revised all the books whose prices I control down to $2.99 to match Amazon. Thanks for pointing out the price discrepancy!

Anne McCaffrey is a old fav of mine, I have also read Mercedes Lackey, Donita Paul, Patricia Briggs, and some others.

Anyone have some suggestions for some good dragon stories? Hopefully by authors that I have not read yet?

Amy
If you like dragon story with action and magic, then I suggest you read the Inheritence cycle by Christopher Paolini... the books in the cycle are -
- Eragon
- Eldest
- Brisinger
- Inheritance.
I hope you'll love these, I know I do, read each one twice and still feel like can read for the third time.

I've actually been meaning to read the novels. I've been told the movie did not really give a good impression of the book.

That's okay, the book didn't really give a good impression, either.

Eragon is a good read, but nothing great either imo.

It might have been mentioned already, but I recommend "Tooth and Claw" by Jo Walton. It focuses on dragons and *only* dragons - they are the inhabitants and protagonists. I've found it it quite entertaining and it's quite unique.

in my opinion, most of the times, movies are different from the novel and the story line is often changed. So, if you didn't like eragon movie, you should atleast try the book. Though I liked both movie and the book, but the book was more logical to understand the events happening in the book, like the battle between eragon and the shade Durza, Raz'ac etc.

If (longish) short stories are fine, I recommend the "Dragons" anthology, published as ebook by Baen Ebooks.
