Coming in March

WARRIORS, the huge new all-original crossgenre anthology I edited with Gardner Dozois, will be published by Tor in hardcover next March.

We've got an all-star lineup of bestsellers and award winners from half a dozen different genres for this one. And here's a first look at the cover:

The table of contents looks like this:

Stories from the Spinner Rack," by George R.R. Martin
"The King of Norway," by Cecilia Holland
"Forever Bound," by Joe Haldeman
"The Triumph," by Robin Hobb
"Clean Slate," by Lawrence Block
"And Ministers of Grace," by Tad Williams
"Soldierin'," by Joe Lansdale
"Dirae," by Peter S. Beagle
"The Eagle and the Rabbit," by Steven Saylor
"Seven Years from Home," by Naomi Novik
"The Custom of the Army," by Diana Gabaldon
"The Pit," by James Rollins
"Out of the Dark," by David Weber
"The Girls from Avenger," by Carrie Vaughn
"Ancient Ways," by S.M. Stirling
"Ninieslando" by Howard Waldrop
"Recidivist" by Gardner Dozois
"My Name is Legion," by David Morrell
"Defenders of the Frontier," by Robert Silverberg
"The Scroll," by David Ball
"The Mystery Knight," by George R.R. Martin

And yes, that last one is the new Dunk & Egg novella, the longest one to date.

Several of the other writers also contributed tales from their on-going series: a Lord John story by Diana Gabaldon, an Emberverse yarn from Steve Stirling, a Soljerboy tale from Joe Haldeman. But we also have vikings, doughboys, legionaires and legionaries, fly girls, buffalo soldiers, and a dozen other different sorts of warriors.

Gardner and I are very high on this one. Hope you will be too.

So looking forward to this one. Same question as everyone else but regarding a different writer: Is the Lawrence Block story from one of his series (Keller?) or standalone?

Awesome! I'll have to check it out...someone mentioned a spring release date? Sounds good. I've been waiting almost two weeks for volume 1 and volume 2 of the Dunk and Egg series to get here in the mail; that should give me more than enough time to catch up.

Awesome... big fan of the Dunk and Egg storyline.

This'll go on the shelf beside Legends and Legends II.

Can't wait to read it
Can't wait to catch up with Dunk & Egg!

"the longest one to date" - awesome. Coming to the end of your books and stories is like the end of summer vacation when you're 9 years old. Super depressing.

Can you tell us whether the David Weber story is a standalone, or part of one of his established settings? I'd love to see a new story set in his "Norfressa" fantasy milieu (or any indication that he's ever going to write more about that world, for that matter), but I'd be just about as delighted with something in the Honorverse or Safehold. Weber is the other author I have to keep reminding myself is Not My B-tch -- prolifically productive as he is, he also has a nasty habit of ending series novels on cliffhangers (the recent Storm from the Shadows being the worst one yet), so that the next book can never come soon enough -- and then he takes breaks from the series (plural!) on which I'm already hooked to start new ones that are just as engaging!

At this point he's got me waiting, as patiently as I can manage (i.e. "not very"), for Torch of Freedom and Mission of Honor in the Honorverse (which has evolved into three series taking place more or less in parallel, braided together into one vast, sprawling story), and as soon as I finish By Heresies Distressed, I'll be waiting equally "patiently" for the next Safehold book, A Mighty Fortress. Not to mention the increasingly faint hope that someday he'll write more about Bahzell Bahnakson. So if you were to tell me that "Out of the Dark" is a Bahzell story, I'd be almost as happy as I would be to hear that you've finished ADWD and sent it off to the publisher; and if it isn't, I'd still love to know with which, if any, of Weber's worlds it is affiliated....

Never really been a short story guy, but I love S.M. Stirling's books and of course the story from the man himself, GRRM! I will definitely pick this one up.

George, you're one of my favorite authors and I love the blog. I have a non-Dance with Dragons/Ice & Fire pilot question: is there a chance that we'll be seeing another "What I'm reading" update anytime soon?

At your recommendation I picked up Melinda Snodgras' The Edge of Reason and loved it; ditto with Jacqueline Carey's novels. I've also read a bunch of the other novelists you've recommended with great enthusiasm and I would love for more recommendations on the site.

Of course you're a busy man - and per Neil Gaiman, I am aware that you're not my bitch ;) - but if you decide to recommend more books, I'm quite certain that I'll be buying them. I suspect others feel the same way.

Cheers and best wishes!

Dunk n Egg
Does this Dunk and Egg novella offer anything in the way of lineages or clues that could be of use for us that are sleuthing and piecing together in "current era" Ice and Fire?

I'm all a tingle!
I can't wait to get a new story from you, as well as from some of my other favorite authors. I look also look forward to discovering new authors and immersing myself in new worlds!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Multiple editions?
What fabulous news. I recently picked up an older anthology containing a piece of your short fiction ("Wastelands: Stories Of The Apocolypse"), and have always loved the historical and personal shadings that the Dunk & Egg stories give to the larger narative of ASoIaF.

I was curious if you knew at this early date if there would be an "early" UK edition as there often is for fantasy works? I pay through the nose for international shipping, but boy do I love me some GRRM gratification ASAP.

Re: Multiple editions?
Right now the Tor edition is the only one, though we hope to sell UK rights eventually.
