    This is probably not the place for it, but apparently Martin has found time to write another short story that takes place in Westeros. Titled "The Princess and the Queen" it reportedly takes place around 200 years before the events in Game of Thrones during the Dance of the Dragons.

    Should be fun, but I'd rather have book 6 or a new Dunk and Egg tale.

    i really have to get on those dunk and egg stories. i just cant find them anywhere. i agree with you, however, i appreciate all the other stuff he does but i really need this series to be completed before he dies. rumor has it that he expects the last 2 books to be 1500+ pages.

    Really? I can't imagine why.

    It was funny, because I had finished the book at this point when you were all prancing about being the king in the north and I was like...tehe

    Three short stories that take place in Westeros about 150 years before the events in Game of Thrones.

    They shed light on certain events that take place in A Dance with Dragons.

    I think it would be great to end the season with Arya running towards the Red Wedding and then the Hound hitting her causing her to black out. When I read that part in the books, I thought Jon Snow was the only Stark left alive.

    Even though I know he's gone now. I will rep my boy during the season :cry:

    Not a bandwagon fan. I was so unprepared for his death when I was finishing the second book and someone on PSD ruined it for me. I still haven't chose my next favorite character. I could be all cliche but I won't pick Tyrion.

    Thats one of the best things about Martin...he's just brutally honest with his characters, and some get treated horribly. This isn't the kind of fantasy story where you know the protagonist makes it to the finish line with the mate of his/her choice.

    I'd advise strongly against getting attached to anyone in particular, because no one is safe. And I really, really like it that way. Although I must confess a huge soft spot for Arya.

    BTW....totally off topic, but if you guys enjoyed reading Martin, you should try Patrick Rothfuss. The Kingkiller Chronicle is quite good.

    Yes! The Kingkiller Chronicles are awesome. Third book in May, right?

    Has anybody read the The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R. Donaldson?

    Is like 10 books, the last one is going to be published this year, I have not read it, but a couple of people have mention it to me when they saw me reading A song of Ice and Fire.

    The first two trilogies are brilliant. I've read the first two books of the third and despite owning the last book, I've still not read it.

    did the other thread get deleted? I had it bookmarked but it says no thread specified.

    "Soft-spoken sweet-smelling Sansa, who loved silks, songs, chivalry and tall gallant knights with handsome faces."

    I'll be very upset if Strong Belwas isn't in this. Probably my favorite moment involves him (don't wanna spoil it.)

    pretty sure he is not. There is no Whitebeard, either. Selmy reveals himself immediately to Dany. It just wouldn't translate onto the screen. You can fool someone a lot easier in writing.
