Westeros is the premiere fansite for George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. Discuss the series on the forums, browse our resource collections, read about the TV series from HBO and play the MUSH, to name just a few of the things we offer.

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.
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.
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stop in Denver have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
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!
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stops in the Bay Area, Huntington Beach, San Diego, and Seattle have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stops in New York City, Petaluma, and San Francisco have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour stops at Indianapolis and Madison have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
More reports from GRRM’s signing tour have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection.
Reports from GRRM’s signing tour, plus a lengthy mail from GRRM to Amok regarding the apperances of the crowned Targaryens, have been placed in the So Spake Martin collection. Also, the FAQ has been updated to look forward to ADwD.
UPDATE: We successfully completed this fundraiser in a little over 12 hours, so it is not closed. Thanks to everyone who contributed!
No, the Citadel isn’t moving. However, we’ve implemented gzipping on the fly. What does that mean?
After much time and effort spent by Linda, our new A Song of Ice and Fire board is just about ready to go live. Feel free to visit, peruse, and (better) yet participate! At present, the series-discussion threads are closed while we prepare some code for spoiler protection, but everything else is presently active. The current board will probably be closed down entirely on Monday; if you’re a past or present user of that forum, do check the Post Count topic in the Help of the new board.
In a bid to help artists produce more A Song of Ice and Fire art, Linda and I have decided to just put the word out that we’d be very happy to assist any and all artists (whether working in a professional or a fan capacity). We’ve consulted on art and other matters for Guardians of Order’s A Game of Thrones RPG, DB Pro’s "The Hedge Knight" comic book adaption, and Testors’s forthcoming miniatures line, and are keen on helping anyone else who wants to speed up their research and get things to look just right. Need to know what a castle is supposed to look like? What kind of cloth is used in the setting? How a particular scene, and the participants in it, are described? Ask us!
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
