Fire & Blood
Fire and Blood is a planned complete history of House Targaryen by George R. R. Martin. Fire and Blood is planned for publication after the completion of A Song of Ice and Fire. Before being titled Fire and Blood, the history was jokingly named the GRRMarillion after J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
Fire and Blood is expected to include an 80,000 word account of the Dance of the Dragons; an abridged version of 30,000 words was included in The Princess and the Queen, which was published in the anthology Dangerous Women in 2013. It also includes an account of the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen, focussing on the life of Viserys's younger brother, Prince Daemon Targaryen. An abridged version of this text, titled The Rogue Prince, was published in the anthology Rogues in 2014. Additionally, Fire and Blood is known to contain an account on the lives of King Aenys I Targaryen and King Maegor I Targaryen called The Sons of the Dragon, which Martin had read on two occassions, and which is set to be released in the anthology The Book of Swords in 2017.
