Meet Doran Martell or Jaime goes to Dorne

We’ve got some photos here via a Spanish web site.

You can click here to see the tweet itself.

 

Here is one of the first photos of the actor who is portraying Doran Martell next season.  And it looks like Jaime will be heading to Dorne in yet another divergence from the books.

The Dragon’s Mercy: The Violent Future Path of Daenerys Targaryen

We’ve linked to this blog before, and we’re doing it again.  Bryndenbfish has written some great essay’s on his blog in the past, and he has a new one that looks to be a multi-part series.  The first part is up now, and we wanted to share it with our readers.

Daenerys Targaryen will make a momentous return in The Winds of Winter, but her return will be not be the stuff of triumph that many fans expect. Many fans believe that Dany will return to Meereen, collect her army and sail for Westeros. But all signs point to George RR Martin defying fan-expectations and following a different course. What course might that be? Only George and his editors know for certain, but I believe a careful reading of the first five books of A Song of Ice and Fire coupled with information collected from interviews and the sample chapters from The Winds of Winter give broad strokes on Dany’s future themes and plot points.

To read the entire essay (which we highly recommend), click here.




THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HISTORY OF WESTEROS AND THE LANDS BEYOND • WITH HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF ALL-NEW MATERIAL FROM GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire.

This lavishly illustrated volume isa comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones. In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org—perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.

Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including
 
• full-color artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces
• full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen
• in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros
• 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book

The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin’s dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice & Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.


From the Hardcover edition.
Kindle Edition: Check Amazon for Pricing Digital Only

This title will be released on October 28, 2014.

GRRM unveils a character from The Winds of Winter prologue at ComicCon

During a panel at ComicCon GRRM let it be known that Jeyne Westerling will appear in the prologue of The Winds of Winter.  Now, it’s important to note that she is not confirmed to be the POV character.  We know the prologue POV characters have a track record of dying, so we can’t assume that yet for Jeyne.

Who do you think the POV will be?  Blackfish? Edmure? An unknown servant?

GRRM wants to write a dozen Dunk and Egg Novellas

Interesting summary of an interview with GRRM from Winter is Coming:

The book that you’re talking about there is a novella about two characters called Dunk and Egg, who lived 90 years before the main story, and I’ve written three novellas about them and hope to write another dozen telling the whole story of their lives. But they are a prequel to what I think of as the main story, which is A Song of Ice and Fire. I’m doing some of the pre-history, the things that happened before, the characters who were legendary characters in the ‘present’ so to speak, I’m telling their stories too. The main story is still A Song of Ice and Fire, in with Game of Thrones.
