[Summary: This is a conversation between Mr. Martin and Rania through AOL's Instant Messanger service.]
Rania: Mr Martin, I noticed several references to Aerion Brightfire in A Storm of Swords. Who is he? Is he the same as Aerion Brightflame brother of Egg and Maester Aemon?
Rania: so why the name change from brightflame to brightfire?
GeoRR: not a change, just a variant
