New Art Site

Mike Miller, the artist drawing "The Hedge Knight" comic book, has launched his own site, The Art of Ice and Fire, which will feature his ASoIaF art. The first piece, Robert and Rhaegar at the Trident, can already be viewed and ordered at the site.

Official Site Update

GRRM’s official site has just been updated with a status report. A Feast for Crows is still being written and there is no certain publication date yet. However, as we have already reported, an excerpt from the book will appear in issue #305 of Dragon Magazine. Called "Arms of the Kraken", it makes up part of the prologue for A Feast for Crows (the prologue is not just one chapter this time around, but rather several with different viewpoints in each) and deals with the struggle for the Seastone Chair following the death of Balon Greyjoy.

GRRM has already read several chapters from A Feast for Crows at various conventions, and reports on these can be found here. Among the chapters being reported on are two other prologue chapters, these two set in Dorne. As it happens, we have actually read the second of these two chapters, and we are happy to report that it was a great read. Well worth preording the book already from either Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.

AFfC Excerpt in Dragon Magazine!

The next issue (no. 305) of Dragon Magazine, to be published in February, will contain an excerpt from A Feast for Crows called "The Arms of the Kraken".

Furthermore, issue 307 will feature Westeros as a D&D setting.

Official Site Update

GRRM’s official site has been updated with some more images from the CCG as well as an update on the status of A Feast for Crows. Although various on-line bookstores list both a publishing date and a page count, none of this information comes from GRRM. The book is still being written, and he doesn’t know when it will be done or how long it will be.

As soon as it is finished, he will announce this on his website, and we will naturally have the information here as well as soon as we learn of it. So, please don’t email GRRM and ask when the book will be out, it will only delay it.

A while ago (yes, we’ve been a little slow to get this one up) we were told about a computer game based on GRRM’s novelette "Sandkings" being in the works. Those interested (and using a Mac) can find more information here.
