The Princess and the Queen

enthroned
The final story in DANGEROUS WOMEN will be my own, a 30,000 word novella entitled "The Princess and the Queen," a history (somewhat abridged) of the Dance of the Dragons, as set down by a maester of the Citadel.

Tor.com has  uploaded a sample to their site.  You can find it here:

Enjoy.

(The full 80,000 word account of the Dance will eventually appear in a book, as yet untitled, that we're calling the GRRMarillion).

GRRMarillion is "The World of Ice and Fire"?? or is another book?

Well, it began as text for THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE, but it grew much, much, much too long... so it will be a separate book (title yet to be determined), some years down the pike.

I just hope it gets even longer than that! I love the story, but I feel, from the small bits scattered along the books, that I will love even more the (fake) history. It is really amazing that such a rich and vivid account of this fascinating world is coming out of one man's mind. God bless Literature, God bless you! (I am pretty sure one day we'll find out that you actually have access to a secret dimensional gate, and have full access to the Citadel's libraries!)

Ah! Since the bulk of the text will be published in a different book, I hope this will ease some of the huge pressure on your shoulders (given that The World of Ice and Fire is scheduled for 2014), and that you may publish the GRRMArillion only when the whole story is over, so that you won't have to "cheat" anymore (http://grrm.livejournal.com/283248.html?thread=16157808#t16157808). :)

best regards from Brazil.
