DREAMSONGS COMING THIS CHRISTMAS
April 17, 2007
Bantam Spectra has announced that it will be releasing its new American hardcover edition of my collection DREAMSONGS in two matching volumes late this year. Volume I will be released in November, Volume II a month later in December. Both volumes should be available in time for Christmas.
DREAMSONGS was originally published in 2003 by Subterranean Press as GRRM: A RRetrospective. The collection features half a million words of short fiction, teleplays, essays, and autobiography, along with an introduction by Gardner Dozois and a bibliographical checklist by Leslie Kay Swigart. SF, fantasy, and horror, a Twilight Zone script and my famous busted pilot Doorways, Haviland Tuf and Wild Cards, Hugo winners, Nebula winners, a Bram Stoker winner and a World Fantasy Award winner, and lots of losers too… DREAMSONGS has it all.
The Bantam Spectra edition will include brand new interior illustrations by the world-famous SF and comics artist Michael Kaluta (for a taste of Kaluta’s gorgeous artwork, visit his own website at http://www.kaluta.com). In addition, Leslie Kay Swigart has updated the bibliographical checklist through the end of 2006.
Here’s a look at Bantam’s handsome new covers for the set (sad to say, the scans don’t really do justice to the foil on the shield and dragons). The jacket design is by James Wang, the illustration by Dominic Harman.
