A Feast For Crows #1

A report from GRRM’s signing in Petaluma indicates that he has just gotten word that ... will enter the November 27th New York Times’ Bestseller list at #1. This has now been confirmed by Bantam Dell. The bestseller lists for the Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly also place the book at #1, while USA Today’s list places it at #2. Congratulations, George!

Order AFfC Limited Edition

Amazon.co.uk is now taking orders for the limited edition of A Feast for Crows. As we posted before, only 1,000 of these slip-cased, signed books will be made available, so they’re likely to disappear pretty quickly.

Webcomic References AFfC

Slightly late, but the webcomic “Least I Could Do”, created by Ryan Sohmer, made the release of   A Feast for Crows a key player in one of their strips.  Good fun.

Art Book Limited Edition

Fantasy Flight Games has now made the limited edition of the Art of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire art book available on its website. Only 230 copies are available out of the initial 250 at this time; supplies seem to be dwindling fast. The book can be purchased via their online store.

In related news, the regular edition of the art book has now begun to ship from Amazon.com and other U.S.-based booksellers.

AFfC A BookSense Bestsller

Chinese Interior Illustrations

A member of the new board pointed out that illustrations from the Chinese edition of A Feast for Crows have been put up at a Chinese-language website (possibly that of the publisher). It’s not clear whether these are illustrations or cover illustrations, as the Taiwanese edition of the novel was split into three volumes.
