Roberts Rebellion

Roberts Rebellion

If you were on the edge about buying the upcoming book The World of Ice and Fire, and you just weren't sure if it was something you wanted, well hold on.  Vulture has just released a brand new excerpt from the book. This time covering a piece of history that is bit more well known to, even, show watchers.  That is the history of Robert's Rebellion - and I can tell you personally this except is just a little over 2 pages of the book (the book totaling 308, not including appendices).  So take a read, and hopefully if you weren't already sold on this amazing book you are now.

The World of Ice and Fire Sample Pages

The World of Ice and Fire Sample Pages

Just a few more days until the release of The World of Ice and Fire.  For those of you out there who are like me, and just cannot wait to get your hands on some new Game of Thrones material, your in luck!  Barnes & Noble has just released a few new display pages from the The World of Ice and Fire.

However there is a catch, I was only able to clearly read the "Kings of Winter" page.  With the other pages, when I zoom in to read them the text gets to distorted to clearly read the words.  However they are still beautiful to look at.  So check out the pages below and let me know if you had better luck reading them.

George R.R. Martin Livestream

George-R.R.-Martin

Mark your calendars!  With the release of The World of Ice and Fire just around the corner, George is making his final appearance in New York.   I talked about this earlier, so if you'd like all the details check that article out - this is more of a reminder to everyone.

The 92Y will be offering a livestream of the event - so if you didn't spend $100+ on a ticket (which are still available) you'll still be able to watch the event live from the comfort of your home.  The event will be taking place on October 26 at 8PM EST.  You can also leave your comments in the discussion going on  below the livestream and hopefully George will answer it.

So will you be watching the livestream, or are you one of lucky few who'll actually be the event?  And if you could have George answer any question (not pertaining to future books) what would it be?  Let me know your thoughts on these questions, and anything else, in the comments below!

Just a quick update here.  A new excerpt from the upcoming book The World of Ice and Fire is now available.  If you download the iTunes World of Ice and Fire app you will have access to the excerpt - I'm not sure if the excerpt is also available for people with Android phones.  This excerpt covers a piece of Vale history up through the Andal invasion. Enjoy!

Also if anyone has a Android phone, let me know in the comments if this excerpt is available there as well - I know the app is downloadable, I'm just not sure if the excerpt has been added there as well.

If you enjoyed this, and are looking forward to the The World of Ice and Fire you can now enter the giveaway we are running for the book.
