In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance --- beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is the fifth installment in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Pete Hamill, author of The Christmas Kid: And Other Brooklyn Stories

Never before collected in one volume, here are Pete Hamill's stories about Brooklyn, the borough in which he was born and grew up, and the one closest to his heart. These are stories of a New York almost lost but not forgotten, brimming over with nostalgia --- for the world after the war, the city before heroin and crack, the days of the Dodgers and Giants, even, for some, the world of the Depression.
