So Spake Martin

Aerion Brightflame

[Summary: This is a conversation between Mr. Martin and Rania through AOL's Instant Messanger service.]

Rania: Mr Martin, I noticed several references to Aerion Brightfire in A Storm of Swords. Who is he? Is he the same as Aerion Brightflame brother of Egg and Maester Aemon?

GeoRR: yes

Rania: so why the name change from brightflame to brightfire?

GeoRR: not a change, just a variant
