Paperbacks Are Coming

tiger
Yes, it's true.  Your wait is over.  A DANCE WITH DRAGONS will finally be published in paperback, next month.

(Have you guys really been waiting?  Really truly?)

The paperback release has been delayed again and again, I know.  (Believe me, I've received a lot of emails about it).  This was done largely at the request of the bookstores.  The hardcover was still selling strongly (still is, actually), so they wanted the paperback delayed.

But no longer.  On October 29, Bantam Spectra will release DANCE simultaneously in trade and mass market paperback editions.

And yes, the paperback will include a preview chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER.  (Though at this point it has been so long that I've forgotten which one it is).

October, by the way, looks to be a huge month for me.  Besides the DANCE paperbacks, I also have OLD MARS coming out that month, and the MEATHOUSE MAN graphic novel, and a little Xmas book called THE WIT AND WISDOM OF TYRION LANNISTER.  But more about that one later.

Mr. Martin is talking about the paperback editions for the continental US market. For US bookstores and online retailers. Here, in the US, ADwD will be available in various paperback editions (mass-market and trade) and new boxed sets with all five novels for the first time.

In international markets ADwD has been available in paperback for some time now. Especially, the UK editions which are also sold in continental Europe and all Commonwealth territories. Bantam, Martin`s US publisher has also published a mass-market edition, but only for export, which means other countries than the US, so there are paperbacks in Mexico and other places.

Ooooh. My first thought was "Wait, what? I've had the paperback edition for about a year now." Thanks for clearing that up.
