What are the chances of Prequel books to ASOIAF? I think lots of people would love to read about Robert and Ned and the TargaryensAlso note that Martin seems to planning some sort of Silmarillion
Martin does a really great job of giving some history of Westeros but there could be so much more, it doesn't even need to be written by Martin as the story is already fleshed out
From his Not a Blog:
The final story in DANGEROUS WOMEN will be my own, a 30,000 word novella entitled "The Princess and the Queen," a history (somewhat abridged) of the Dance of the Dragons, as set down by a maester of the Citadel.
Tor.com has just uploaded a sample to their site. You can find it here:
(The full 80,000 word account of the Dance will eventually appear in a book, as yet untitled, that we're calling the GRRMarillion).
