    He admitted that while this may not be the final title, it will not be something as simple as Tales of Dunk & Egg or The Adventures of Dunk & Egg, as he believes the title needs to pique the curiosity of those unfamiliar with the stories. Martin has also expressed his love for the characters Dunk and Egg, but believes that a title containing only their names might appear more like a stage title rather than a story centered around chivalry and chivalry, which are central themes in the novels.

    The working title will be A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS: THE HEDGE KNIGHT. Whether that will be the final title, I can’t say for sure…other than to say, it WILL NOT be called TALES OF DUNK & EGG, THE ADVENTURES OF DUNK & EGG, DUNK & EGG, OR Anything like that. I love Dunk and I love Egg, and I know fans refer to my short fiction as “Dunk & Egg stories,” sure, but there are millions of people out there who don’t know the stories and the title needs to interest them too. If you don’t You know the characters, DUNK & EGG sounds like a sitcom. LAVERNE & SHIRLEY. ABBOTT & COSTELLO. BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD. So, no. We want the word ‘knight’ in the title. Knights and chivalry are central to the themes of these stories.”
