2005 Asimov’s Reader Awards

Asimov’s Science Fiction, one of the top SF/F fiction magazines, is holding its annual reader awards for the best works published in their pages. GRRM is nominated in the “Best Novella” category for the story “Shadow Twin”, written in collaboration with Daniel Abrahamson and Gardner Dozois. It’s an excellent story, among other excellent stories in the magazine. Vote now!

New Miniatures Images

Testor has sent us fifteen new images of prototypes for their line of “A Song of Ice and Fire” resins. These can be seen at All Sorts of Weird Stuff’s gallery. For the first time, we get an idea of what the resins may look like once painted, as there’s a (very large) image featuring a number of Stark figures (plus Theon Greyjoy) captured at various moments from A Game of Thrones.

News from Guardians of Order

Guardians of Order was pleased to announce a number of new items recently which are related to the A Game of Thrones RPG:

New York Times Profile

The New York Times has published a lengthy profile of GRRM. It’s well worth checking out.

Hedge Knight Third Edition

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.

Images & So Spake Martin Update

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.

2006 Raven Awards Announced

The Brotherhood without Banners has announced the latest recipients of its Raven Award, the fans known as Mormont and Skylark!  Congratulations!

GRRM on Fictionwise

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.

Official Site Update

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.

Books Update

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.

Images Update

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 and the Dragons

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.

So Spake Martin Update

Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stop in Denver have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
