George R.R. Martin has a new book coming out this October -- sort of.
The author's 1980 children's book set in the world of Game of Thrones is getting re-released with new art from Spanish fantasy artist Luis Royo. The Ice Dragon tells the story of a young girl, Adara, the only person from her village to connect with the legendary Ice Dragon, a creature who only visits in winter.
How does it fit into the universe of Game of Thrones? It's a fairy-tale type story in the land of Westeros. In the books, Jon Snow remembers it as a bedtime story that Old Nan used to tell him. "Ice Dragons" have not appeared in Martin's five Thrones books -- yet (who knows what could happen in The Winds of Winter?).
Royo has visualized the creatures on the cover and extensive interior art for The Ice Dragon's re-release. You can see the cover and some of the art on the website of the book's publisher, Tor. The new edition hits shelves on Oct. 21 from Tor Teen.
