Better believe I picked up my copy on Amazon: zap! Been running around with my son and just now seeing Neil's title wondering If it is Neverwhere related...

It is indeed; someone confirmed it on Twitter earlier in the week.

"How the Marquis Got His Coat Back"! Finally!

I've been waiting for that story ever since Neil announced it during his Graveyard Book speaking tour, when he said it would be appearing in Legends II. Instead we got a Shadow story, which, while good, wasn't what I was expecting.

The only thing better than a new book is two new books
Just picked up Rogues and Cibola Burn today. Thanks for helping me discover so many great authors. I've read way more books in the past 3 years than i have in the other 25 and it's been a blast.

Got my copy as an ebook! :)

When Winds is out I'll grab that as hardback on day 1.

The Dance of Dragons on the big screen
Picked it up as an e-book couple of minutes ago!

With this novella you have completed the short version of the story of "The Dance of Dragons". Have you already written "the long version" of this war to be published in "Fire and Blood" or is this the complete published text of The Rogue Prince and The Princess and the Queen?

I dream of the day I step into the movie theatre to watch a movie adaptation of The Dance of Dragons. It is cut out to be an epic film!

Re: The Dance of Dragons on the big screen
No, both "The Rogue Prince" and "The Princess and the Queen" have been considerably shortened to fit into ROGUES and DANGEROUS WOMEN, respectively. The full versions in the GRRMarillion will be much longer. Same events, more of less, but considerably more detail.

I bought this yesterday, read your latest short on Daemon first and loved it! Oh the wonderful scandals of the Targaryens! Very good stuff. I feel this gives a lovely background to the events in the Princess and the Queen, and it has certainly made me thirsty for more Westerosi history...bring on the World of Ice and Fire! I love your fictional history, keep up the wonderful work.
I'm planning to work my way through the anthology slowly, reading a little each night. Already made a start with "The Lightning Tree" which is very enjoyable so far. I think after that I will move onto Abercrombie's "Tough Times All Over". This seems like an impressive collection and I will be hard pressed to decide on my favourite. Money well spent I think

Fantastic anthology
Picked it up last night and I'm enjoying the hell out of it so far! You, Gaiman, Lynch, Abercrombie, Rothfuss, and so many others-- it's like the Justice League of Fantasy Authors just came together!

Re: Fantastic anthology
The Avengers of fantasy authors would be better. I am a former member of the Merry Marvel Marching Society, after all.

Looking forward to reading it! Great writers, especially Neil Gaiman, one of my all time favorite!
Jun. 18th, 2014 06:26 pm (UTC)
Yay! It arrived just now via Canada Post, thanks to the option of pre-ordering. Now the question is whether to read it cover to cover consecutively, or drop in on a few stories at a time.... tough decision!

Are the books at your theater only for New Mexicans? I am travelling from NY for work and would like to check out the theater and maybe pick up a some books. Is it like a state discount thing or something?
Jun. 18th, 2014 09:25 pm (UTC)
No, not at all. The books are for anyone who wants 'em. We trade them for bits of green paper with pictures of dead presidents on 'em.

Love the History!
Great anthology! Rothfuss is amazing and this is a nice teaser while waiting for Doors of Stone. I adore the world you have created and get so excited whenever there is new material to devour. These additional stories add so much richness to the main story line. Can't wait for World of Ice and Fire. Any shot at seeing some of these extra stories adapted? I know you've touched on it before but especially the Dunk and Egg stuff could make for an amazing serial.
