Good day, everyone. Here are a few treats for my fellow Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire fans.
Don’t forget that Martin is lead on a new anthology that features a novella about old-timey Targaryen sisters riding dragons (I still need to read it), or that The World of Ice and Fire, Martin’s long-awaited history of Westeros, is available for pre-order now.
And now, a shameless plug for one of my favorite video bloggers, comicbookgirl19. She’s a geek of many stripes. Poke around on her YouTube channel for a bit and you’ll find her videos on the histories of the great houses of Westeros. They contain invaluable information for fans of the show (or books) who haven’t delved much into the world’s lore.
ed. – Here’ a bonus. The trailer HBO released yesterday for their new season:
So, keeping spoilers to a minimum, who are your favorite characters? What are your predictions for where the show will go next? Let’s try not to give too much away to the people who haven’t been following the books yet. Failing that, anybody else a fan of the Dunk and Egg novellas? How do you feel they might fit into the larger story arcs that Martin is working up in the main series?
-edited to remove comicbookgirl19 video. Her videos are definitely good enough to share, but we’ve had real problems getting her videos to play when we embed them. The link to her channel works, though.
