Please note, the information above comes from George R. R. Martin's blog. He says, "No word yet as to when the book will be released, but I'll be sure and let you know once it's scheduled."

I think "Plague of Zombies" is going to be a fun story, judging from the bits we've seen so far! Click here to see the thread about this story on Compuserve, including excerpts.

Oh no not another one... I'm seriously considering getting this one from the library. I don't know how much more wishy washy fantasy and science fiction I can take, just for another brilliant story from Diana. Hmm, I know! I'll buy it as a present for someone and read it first. ha ha!
