Stuff and Nonsense

Spain
Just flipped over the page on my World Wildlife Fund calendar (a day late, sue me), and was amused to see that the featured animals for July are gorillas. Nothing could be more fitting for the month in which Kong is finally loosed upon the reading public. heh

On other fronts... I mentioned below that WARRIORS won the Locus Award as the best anthology of 2010, which pleased me no end... but I forgot to mention that Gardner Dozois and I have just signed with Tor for a sequel of sorts. A mammoth crossgenre book featuring contributions from an all-star lineup of award-winning writers and bestsellers from half a dozen different genres and subgenres. This one has the working title DANGEROUS WOMEN. Whether that will be the final title or not, I am less sure. Must admit, I do not love it; too generic for my taste. I wanted to call the book FEMMES FATALE, but our editor suggested that no one younger than forty would have any idea what that phrase meant. Which boggles the hell out of me, but what do I know? Could be we'll settle on WOMEN WARRIORS. Though that's limiting in a different sort of way. But whatever title it goes by in the end, it should be a helluva anthology. We have some great writers lined up, as we did with WARRIORS.

And yes, DANGEROUS WOMEN will include the fourth Dunk & Egg novella, the long-promised tale of their visit to the North, where they encounter the She-Wolves of Winterfell. I could tell you more than that, but then I'd need to kill you.

Meanwhile, Ice & Fire continues its slow conquest of the world, nation by nation and language by language. I've just signed a deal for Turkish editions, and we're negotiating with a Vietnamese publisher as well.

And my US book tour is coming up fast, so these days have been busy ones. At the moment I am finishing up the first draft of my script for the second season of the HBO series, hammering out the overplot of the new Wild Cards book LOWBALL, and of course doing what seems like ten interviews a day. Would that there were four of me.

These are exciting days.

They were publshed under "the hedge knight" in a couple of Anthologies - Legends, Legends II, and Warriors. The stories in Legends and Legends II were also published as graphic novels titled "The Hedge Knight" and "The Hedge Knight II: Sworn Sword". The third story is currently (to my knowledge) only available in "The Warriors" anthology (still in print and available at B&N and Amazon). I don't think either of the "Legends" anthologies are in print anymore and would need to be purchased 2nd hand."Dreamsongs" another GRRM anthology also had a reprint of it (or was it Dreamsongs II?...) the graphic novels are awesome, part 1 is out of print and commands a premium online, part 2 is still available in paperback form from amazon or B&N. If you've read all of the SoIaF novels, the hedge knight is a pleasant side story showing the world of westeros from a different perspective before Roberts reign as King. I love the journey of Dunk and his squire Egg. Good stuff.
