This is the third and final volume of Martin’s collection of short stories. I found these later stories much less intriguing.

George R. R. Martin is a wizard of character. He can write any story in any setting and the reader feels almost instantly like he knows and understands the people. The emotions and thoughts and actions are real to a point that is rare in any fiction.

Many of these stories just didn’t work for me. The characters are there, just as powerfully as ever but some of them just are

Listened to this on my work commute. The first section is for Martin's fans, a discussion of his life as s screenwriter. Then an assortment of stories and novellas. I really enjoyed the werewolf mystery, and the final story of an author who is visited by his characters. Of all the stories, The Hedge Knight really stood out, and the reader was perfect for it.

When I discovered there was a Dreamsongs 3, I downloaded and listened to it. Ah, something to tide me over until the next Song of Ice and Fire. The stories seemed awfully familiar so I checked the net to find out which stories were in which of the audiobooks.

I found John Joseph Adams's posts on Amazon to be the most helpful. His lists proved to me there were no duplicate stories in the 3 audios.

How come Dreamsongs 3 was so familiar? Because I had read the stories in Dreamsongs 2, the book! 2 b

Some stories are great, some are not so hot; of the former I most liked The Skin Trade and Unsound Variations. The latter category more or less encompasses the stories that take place in a world more fully developed elsewhere, Wild Cards and Song of Ice and Fire. Too many laundry lists of characters. RR can write a great story when he wants to, though.

Can't say enough good things about this man's writing. Depth of character, background, storyline...he hits the mark every time. Loved the hedgenight prequel, and Portraits of His Children was worthy of his old venue, The Twilight Zone, with or without Rob (what was his name?) Sterling. Narratives by George added immensely.
William Fuentes
This was an up and down audio selection. The Hedge Knight of course rules. I also liked the Skin Trade narrated by Claudia Black and a male person. They would each narrate a POV. Also the Glass Flower was awesome as well. Under Seige ruled also. There ya go that is all I got!
John
nice collection of shorts. Always wanted to read a Wild Cards story, and found it to be a good one. Also like the short bio in there by Martin about his Hollywood experiences.

May have to read more from the Wildcards series after reading this.
