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.'"
George R.R. Martin

After a long, bloody struggle between enthusiastic (and, in some few cases, over-enthusiastic) fans of both Rand al’Thor and Jaime Lannister, the Dragon Reborn narrowly took the title in Suvudu’s inaugural Cage Match. Just 180 votes out of just over 30,000 separated winner from loser. Hats off to everyone who took part and made it a fun event (and boo to those who tried to take the fun out of it!)
In particular, a warm thanks to Suvudu’s editors for conceiving and running the event, and who wrote a fine wrap-up (video wrap-up promised tomorrow), and to all the authors who participated with arguments and stories: Steven Brust (Vlad was robbed!), Patrick Rothfuss, Naomi Novik, Brandon Sanderson (who has written a funny version of how Rand won), and of course George R.R. Martin, who gave many fantasy fans new reason to check out A Song of Ice and Fire thanks to his terrific write-ups.
