New George RR Martin Story Set In Westeros, 'The Princess And The Queen'

George R.R. Martin announced on Tuesday that he's co-edited a new anthology called Dangerous Women.

According to the publisher Tor, Martin's contribution to the book, The Princess and the Queen, is a novella set in the Song and Ice and Fire world that "will reveal the origins of the Targaryen Civil War, otherwise known as 'The Dance of the Dragons.' A war that split a then fledgling Westeros in two, pitting Targaryen against Targaryen and dragon against dragon."

You can see more in the video at the top of the post. A publishing date has not been announced.
