They're novellas set years before A Song of Ice and Fire series. Dunk is Ser Duncan the Tall of the Kingsguard. At si Egg is Aegon V, brother of Aemon Targaryen. Siya yung sinabihan ni Master Aemon na Kill the boy and let the man be born.
Nasa first book pa lang ako. Very intrigued with Keelhus, antagal uli ng POV niya. Good thing there are the Ikureis where their chaptes are a page-turner. I don't know if this is the right thing to say, but I feel bored reading Achamian's chapters esp. kapag kasama si Esmenet.
A Game of Thrones, 2nd Edition board game
Backs were stabbed, knives were twisted. You win or you die... in 6-7 hours
(I'm not in the photo)
and yea, this series is very slow, but deeper than your average fantasy
I'll say this and Gene Wolfe's books are bordering on literature
and Achamian's chapters get really good when he starts... singing
which is still in book 2 iirc
actually katatapos ko lang basahin yung The Warrior-Prophet ngayong araw. Astig nga yung chapter na yun. A naked middle-aged sorcerer is now more bada$$ in my books than an unburnt naked Khaleesi.
I found Cnaiur brooding too much, nakakainis pero unique ang character niya: A highly-intelligent barbarian. He's a weeper though.
Going to start A Thousandfold Thought tonight. Mami-meet ko na ba dito si Moenghus?
From best to okay:
any comments on the tv series and on how they are going to bridge the omission of characters?
im interested on how the 'split' between bran and rickon will take place. we know that osha will go to rickon, but who will go with bran and hodor up north without the reed's in the picture?
lovin it... for the life of me, I can't remember why I procrastinated on reading the series.
now... I just wish there's a way to change my nick to Daenarys or Arya . lol
Guys, do you know where can I buy the books that don't have "A New Original Series From HBO" on its cover? Thanks.
Martin Talks 'Game Of Thrones,' 'The Winds Of Winter'
As "Game of Thrones" enjoys the success of a record-breaking season, author George R.R. Martin is hoping to maintain his head start on the series starting with his next "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel, "The Winds of Winter."
HBO renewed the hit fantasy series earlier this year for a third season based on his novel "A Storm of Swords." Filming will start this summer and will include a return to Belfast, Northern Ireland; Croatia, representing parts of King’s Landing; and Iceland.
Series executive producers David Benioff ("Troy," "The Kite Runner") and D.B. Weiss signed contracts to return for two more seasons; although, the network has yet to announce a Season 4 pickup.
However, with additional season pickups likely considering the show's success, Martin is attempting to buckle down and finish his novels before HBO catches up.
"I'm working on that, and a number of 'Ice and Fire' related things at the same time," Martin recently said in an interview with HBO. "Not only 'The Winds of Winter,' which is Book 6, but we're also coming out with a big concordance called 'The World of Ice and Fire,' which is about the whole history of Westeros and will be lavishly illustrated. … We've also been doing a map book, and I'm working on a new novella about Dunk and Egg, the prequel series I have."
Martin admits his writing style is a slow process, especially with the size and complexity of his books.
"I am aware of the TV series moving along behind me like a giant locomotive, and I know I need to lay the track more quickly, perhaps, because the locomotive is soon going to be bearing down on me," he said. "The last thing I want is for the TV series to catch up with me. I've got a considerable head start, but production is moving faster than I can write. I'm hoping that we'll finish the story at about the same time ... we'll see.
"Sometimes I make the decisions wrongly. My process as a writer is not one of thoroughly outlining ahead of time, which can result in my muse leading me down blind alleys and dead ends. … So then I have to double back and rewrite and so forth. It's almost a subconscious thing -- when it's right, it feels right, and when it doesn't feel right, I keep niggling at it until it does."
Regardless, the series continued to enchant its television audience this year. "Valar Morghulis," the Season 2 finale, pulled in 5.1 million viewers June 3 when including the encore, and for the first time the series attracted over four million viewers, 4.2 million in all, during its initial airing.
Season 2 maintained stable ratings since its debut April 1. Initial episode airings have averaged 3.7 million viewers, with 10.4 million watching when factoring in all platforms and encores. This achievement places the series as the third most popular program in HBO's history.
