The Tales of Dunk and Egg

created by George R. R. Martin

A subsidiary or ancillary series to the A Song of Ice and Fire series.


The Tales of Dunk and Egg is a series of novellas written by George R. R. Martin, set in the world of his Song of Ice and Fire cycle. Three novellas have appeared so far: The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword and The Mystery Knight (recently published in the Warriors anthology (March 2010)). The stories relate the adventures of Dunk (eponymously called Ser Duncan the Tall, a legendary member of the Kingsguard before the time of A Song of Ice and Fire) and Egg (the later King Aegon V in a disguised role), beginning with their meeting eighty-nine years before the events of the main cycle and intended to cover a long period of time. Martin has indicated there will be several more stories, as many as nine, covering much of the life stories of the two protagonists.
