Dragon Lore

Hello! Hope things are going well with you, and that the wild fires are far from where you live.

Far enough that I haven't been evacuated, but still too close for comfort.

Speaking of fires, while discussing Daenerys and her dragons with some other fans, a question arose. How long does it take a dragon to "mature"?

Good question.

In what place, if any, has there been an accumulation of dragonlore?

Valyria. The Citadel. Dragonstone. Probably some of the Free Cities as well. Maybe Asshai in the far east.

I'm exited to read Storm of Swords, and I hope I get the chance to catch a book signing or reading somewhere in my area (DC).

Looks like I'll be touring in November, but I don't know what cities they'll send me to.
