Teaser Tuesday: The Heart in Conflict (Dreamsongs, Volume II)

Teaser Tuesday post for 18 February 2014:

Dreamsongs, Volume II by George R. R. Martin

Stories of the human heart in conflict with itself transcend time, place, and setting.  So long as love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice are present, it matters not a whit whether the tall, lean stranger has a proton pistol or a six-shooter in his hand.  Or a sword–

Teaser Tuesday post for 4 February 2014:

Dreamsongs, Volume II by George R. R. Martin
