All Sorts of Weird Stuff offers news and information about George R.R. Martin, in particular about his A Song of Ice and Fire series.
"When I was young, I read all sorts of stuff. One week it would be Lovecraft, the next Vance. It was all imaginative literature, or as my dad called it 'Weird Stuff.' It was all 'Weird Stuff.'"

Last night, we spotted the fact that A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Cookbook Companion to A Game of Thrones was now available to pre-order, with a June 26th publication date.
Written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer (creators of the Inn at the Crossroads) and with a foreword from George R.R. Martin, the book will be a lavishly-photographed sampling of about 100 dishes described in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series; despite the title, the recipes will be drawn from all five novels. The Inn at the Crossroads reported via Twitter that they finished a 7 hour photo shoot on Monday, and that they got their cover photo sorted then, so hopefully it won’t be long before we see the final cover.
If you’d like to learn a bit more, we posted a Youtube video where Martin announced the deal for the cookbook during his A Dance with Dragons signing tour. We also interviewed Monroe-Cassel and Lehrer about their site and their insights into Seven Kingdoms cuisine last year for Suvudu.com.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
