I was just talking with Bill from Subterranean Press and he asked that I help get the word out. Here is their big news:

Announcing A STORM OF SWORDS Limited Edition
As has long been rumored, we have purchased the rights from Meisha Merlin to continue the Limited Editions of A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE by fantasy best-seller George R.R. Martin. The first volume from us, A STORM OF SWORDS, will be released late this year. Charles Vess expects to finish the art in June, after which we’ll fast track the design and proofreading.

You can get the full details on the lavish production we plan at our website, but here are a few highlights from A STORM OF SWORDS:

— two volumes housed in an oversize slipcase
— a different full-color wraparound dust jacket on each volume
— over 70 black and white interior illustrations by Charles Vess
— all copies signed by George R. R. Martin and Charles Vess

We are offering individuals who bought previous volumes first rights to the same letter/number of STORM. We will announce a cut off date soon, after which we will make copies available to everyone else.

If you own CLASH OF KINGS, please mention your letter/number in the comments section when checking out.

If you do NOT own CLASH, you may still order STORM. We won’t process your order until we can guarantee a copy will be available. Demand for this volume is expected to far exceed the supply, so order now or be disappointed

A STORM OF SWORDS will be available in two editions:
Limited: 448 signed numbered copies: $250
Lettered: 52 signed lettered copies with Vess remarque: $395

Please note: Shipping on STORM is $10 in the US; overseas figured individually.


If you’ve ordered a copy of the earlier limited editions from us (Clarkesworld Books), you’re number is already reserved.

If you ordered elsewhere or want to go on the wait list, go to the Subterranean Press web site: Subterranean Press
