Round 3 of Suvudu’s Cagematch 2010 has started, and Jaime Lannister—after surprise defeats of Hermione Granger and Cthulhu—is now facing ... well, a rather polite and charming dragon. Naomi Novik’s creation, Temeraire, is a fine, personable young dragon in an alternate 19th century England, but the story she’s written to explain why she thinks Temeraire will win draws in quite a bit of pop, 21st-century culture (two words: reality television).
Go there and vote now! A final thought: dragons were bred for battle in the Seven Kingdoms, and in battle they died. Time for the Kingslayer to become the Dragonslayer.
