White Horse, Dark Dragon is a novel written in the style of magical realism by Robert C. Fleet, a political satire-adventure. It was published by Putnam/Berkley/Ace in 1993.
The action holds in a fictional Central European country, Karistan, where beautiful Alta lives with her young blind daughter Jewel. Jewel has a friend in enigmatic white horse. Meanwhile, American Jim Martin is sent there to prove that a new investment is not going to harm the environment in Karistan...
The book is described by The Science Fiction Chronicle as "an interesting juxtaposition of fantasy and modern politics," and has become something of a cult novel due to its dry political humor satirizing late-era Communism and U.S. corporate boardrooms - mixed with action, historical romance and nuanced characters.
