George R.R. Martin to publish at least one ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ story in 2017
It’s not ‘The Winds of Winter’ but it’s something.
It’s too early to tell if The Winds of Winter will be finished this year like George R.R. Martin hopes, but we now know that we’ll get at least one new story out of the world he created.
Martin is contributing a story to the upcoming fantasy anthology Book of Swords, which is edited by Martin’s longtime co-editor Gardner Dozois. The book, which fans recently stumbled into on Amazon, will be released Oct. 10. For those who might doubt the validity of an Amazon page, the same information appears on Random House’s website, which includes Bantam, the imprint under which the book publishes.
“Fifteen original tales celebrating fantasy’s golden age of sword and sorcery, including a new story from George R. R. Martin set in the world of A Game of Thrones!” the anthology’s description reads.
There’s no indication on what Martin wants to include and he has yet to mention his story being part of Dozois’ anthology on his blog. Some fans have surmised that he might include a story from Fire and Blood, an unpublished and comprehensive history of the Targaryen family. One Tumblr user believes it might be a version of a story he’s read at conventions in the past.
He’s previously released stories in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire in other anthologies including the Tales of Dunk and Egg, “The Princess and the Queen,” and “The Rogue Prince,” which all revolve around the Targaryens decades before Daenerys Targaryen’s birth.
