Dangerous Women Vol. 1, edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, includes stories by Carrie Vaughn, Megan Lindholm, Lawrence Block, Joe R. Lansdale, Megan Abbott, Cecelia Holland, and features George R. R. Martin's "The Princess and the Queen," a 35,000-word original novella set in the world of his bestselling Song of Ice and Fire series, basis for the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.
"'The Princess and the Queen' is densely packed with warfare, politicking, bloody melodrama, and dragon-on-dragon assault. It reads like Martin's outline for a Game of Thrones prequel that never was."--Entertainment Weekly
