For those who'd like a taste of the treats awaiting them, Pat has also put up an excerpt from Patrick Rothfuss's outstanding novella.  You can find that one here:

As a morally sound Cowboys fan I would love a copy!

Will enter! If I don't win, I'm getting a copy anyway for my Kobo ereader. Speaking of, they haven't posted it to their site yet...hope the pre-order goes up soon!
[I own your Ice and Fire books in hardback, and will get the remaining ones as such.]

Delivery to England?
Can a winner be outside of the US? I'm from across the pond (England), and was just wondering whether it would be shipped to me (as I know it's hilariously pricey) if I did win?

Can't way for this anthology, absolutely loved Dangerous Women!

Please talk to your publishers about making sure ASoF&I is available in large print. Some fans are older and have visibility issues. Thank you.

Take my money--just take it!

you have gotten me to enjoy short stories...
Like alot of fans I didn't used to appreciate shorter works. I'd long (and especially multi-volume) epics so I can get comfortable and know the characters. Short stories can be a bit difficult to get into because you are constantly meeting new characters and new writing styles.

I have started to appreciate this. I get in and out. If I don't like something then I didn't waste alot of time. I am finding that I am discovering new authors with these multi-author anthologies. I have also found that authors write somewhat differently in short stories. They tend to have a bit of a twist to it. These kinds of things don't really work in longer novels. However, when its a get in and get out type of thing, they work very well.

I encourage people to read these kinds of anthologies. Its a great way to get a taste of new authors. Some of you may find this difficult to believe, but this is how I discovered Robert Silverberg. I was not in tune with the SF community at the time (not really involved now either) and had no idea who he was in the late 1990s. I bought the first legends book for the Robert Jordan story and in part for George's story. While I enjoyed those, I already knew those authors. I really enjoyed Silverberg's Marjipoor story. It got me to read alot more of his work. I probably wouldn't have ended up reading him at all if not for that anthology.

I have made a decision that when I get a new anthology I am going to read the authors I have not read first. So I can explore new authors, then if I like the story, google them and see what else they have done.

I should also add that was a great sample!

Yourself, Daniel Abraham, Patrick Rothfuss, Steven Erikson and Brandon Sanderson are my favourite authors in the fantasy field!

Oh cool. New one from Scott Lynch as well.

I pre-ordered Rouges yesterday. I'm so excited to read these! The previous anthologies have been a great introduction to authors I wasn't familiar with (and others I already love).

"And a new game of thrones story"? Is that really necessary? :/ Ruined the cover for me. Same with World of ice and fire cover where "Game of thrones" is written larger than it should be. >_

The lightning tree
Hey I have never read the Kingkiller chronicle, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I should read it before I read the lightning tree in rogues. Thanks!

Re: The lightning tree
Kingkiller was pretty amazing, Patrick Rothfuss is an exceptional writer.

Google Maps Directions for your Dragon
Have you seen the story about google maps giving directions for your dragon? I have a link to the story but can't put it in here or it will get marked as spam. It is on the nbc web site.
