GRRM’s official site has been updated with new material in "Cover Art", "From My Readers" and "What I’m Watching".
From Broken Frontier, we learn that the Dabel Brothers are preparing to release a third edition of their Hedge Knight graphic novel. The third edition will contain new bonus material from the upcoming adaption of GRRM’s, "The Sworn Sword", which we have previously reported on here.
The So Spake Martin collection has been updated with a report from GRRM’s signing in Albuquerque on November 29th, to promote A Feast for Crows. The Images section has been updated with several minor updates to our new map of Westeros (including a speculative scale), plus a greyscaled version of the map to reduce download time for those on slower connections.
Fictionwise.com, one of the leading e-book sites, has recently added several of GRRM’s stories to its already-sizable collection (which includes a number of GRRM’s novels, including parts of the Wild Cards series). Particularly notable additions are “A Song for Lya”, “Portraits of His Children”, and “The Glass Flower”. The full list of the e-books available for purchase can be found here.
GRRM’s official site has been updated with new pictures from fans and an updated sample from A Feast for Crows (the second Daenerys chapter; it’s unclear whether any substantial changes have been introduced to previous previews of this chapter). Also, George’s bookselling page has been re-opened.
The Books section of the Citadel has been both reorganized and updated. We have included several more of GRRM’s titles (though we don’t yet have reviews for all of them), and we have reorganized how we present reviews of other books. You will now find several pages of ‘special occasion’ reviews (such as the list of Christmas recommendations, updated just a little while ago) as well as several pages by genre that pull in a random selection of reviews within that specific genre from our personal site.
The Images section has been updated with our own map of Westeros. It’s an extremely large image file (about 1 meg in total size) and is complete up through A Feast for Crows. The previous maps of the North, South, and the Land beyond the Wall have now been removed as they are no longer necessary. If you notice any errors, please let us know.
Amok has decided to try and fill out his Targaryen portraits by doing drawings of other, notable Targaryens. He’s calling for names of those Targaryens, and descriptions (if any can be found), so as to try and produce this work prior to Christmas. You can read about it here. While you’re at it, go and vote in the polls for which other characters Amok should try his skilled hand at in the future.
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stop in Denver have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
Locus’s November 2005 issue features GRRM on the cover. Inside, there’s an interview as well as a review of the book. Locus has now released some choice excerpts from the interview on its official website.
Mike S. Miller, artist on The Hedge Knight graphic novel and holder of the license to produce official “A Song of Ice and Fire” lithographs, has opened a new site that features his work: Firebrand Fantasy Art.
GRRM’s official site has been updated with new details regarding George’s A Feast for Crows tour in Canada. He’ll be starting in Toronto and going on from there to Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, and Vancouver. Our calendar will be updated shortly to reflect this.
The Artwork section has been updated with a new artist, Abe Papakhian, who has contributed a number of new pieces of black-and-white art, plus an excellent watercolor triptych. He promises more to come, and we’re looking forward to it!
