Read full description of the books:The third Dunk&Egg story, and perhaps the most plot filled, and the one with a more obvious connection to the ASOIAF (Set a couple generations in the future). I think reading this helps to figure out a small mystery in the ASOIAF, particularly a ADWD revelation (view spoiler)[namely the three eyed crow. And I do believe we have cameos by Lord Frey here (hide spoiler)].
But my enjoyment of the Dunk&Egg stories is seems to be reverse chronology, I loved the first, liked a lot the second story, but this third story I like with reservations. The writing did not work for me the same way strangely. And while there are some subtle details (view spoiler)[like Dunk not realizing Bloodraven was under disguise as Plumm (hide spoiler)] the final scene seems a bit half-cooked (view spoiler)[ Egg being the egg that hatched into a dragon? Is what he did here as different than what he did at Ashford? Egg has been like this *all* the time. And only thing which changes is that Bloodraven has now noticed him again. Egg is still going north with Dunk. (hide spoiler)]

In 1975 he married Gale Burnick. They divorced in 1979, with no children. Martin became a full-time writer in 1979. He was writer-in-residence at Clarke College from 1978-79.
