    5. I’ll be checking this out for sure! I know some of the other fandoms claim their shows are the best, but honestly, what other story being told can support so many others simply by being part of enjoying the story? Answer: none.

    6. I’ve been a daily reader for the past three years but have yet to comment. (Mostly because I read at work but can’t comment there – server doesn’t allow it. )
      For the record, I’m a huge fan of both the show and the books; I think D&D have done a great job streamlining Martin’s work for television. Hats off to all the non-haters!

    7. I couldn’t wait, found it at my local indie. Wow, this is going to be interesting. Sample chapters:

      A Machiavellian Discourse on GOT

      Barbarian Colonizers and Postcolonialism in Westeros and Britian

      Rocking Cradles and Hatching Dragons: Parents in GOT

      Writing the Rules of their Own Game:representation of female agency in medieval England

      “I shall take no wife’:Celibrate Societies in Westerous and Western Europe

      Whats in a name: History and Fantasy in GOT

      Only problem is that the print is really small…..think I need to pull out my reading glasses for this one. Can’t wait to get started!

    10. ASoI&F is ripe with fascinating analogies from world history but I fear its relevance is not only in our rear-view mirror…

    12. I think GGRM got some of his inspiration for the Mountain and Tyrion from an exhibit at the Tower of London containing a suit of armor for a giant and one for a dwarf or child.

    13. I wonder how many people had to die for that book to write…
      Maybe none, only use a bit of blood from many people…
      Maybe many, only use the best drops of blood for the “ink”…
      We’ll never know the answer, but I’d still like to read it…

    14. When you play the game of thrones “get a free copy by commenting game” you either win, or you just leave a random comment on the bottom of a blog you were going to read regardless.
