This one will never bend, she thought, yet she must try nonetheless. Too much was at stake.
“On the road Arya had felt like a sheep, but Harrenhal turned her into a mouse…she had killed Chyswick with a whisper and she would kill two more before she was through. I’m the ghost in Harrenhal.“
And we’re back! Sorry for the delay, folks.
Over on Tower of the Hand, you can now read Amin Javadi(of the Podcast of Ice and Fire)’s excellent essay on the role of singers and songs in ASOIAF, along with an update about where Hymn for Spring stands.
Check it out!
And…we’re done! The last part in the Blacks and Reds series, focusing on the Golden Company itself, its origin and purpose, its military structure, its role in the politics of Essos, the War of Ninepenny Kings, and its role in the story of A Song of Ice and Fire, is now up at Tower of the Hand!
Ok…some of you may have noticed that 3/15 went by without our pre-order page going up on Amazon.com for Tower of the Hand: Hymn for Spring. This is an embarrassing but unavoidable delay driven by some things out of our control. However, the plan is now to have the pre-order page up by April 1st, so the show will go on. And just to personally reassure you, I can see the progress toward the book being published, and it’s accelerating by the day – this book is going to happen very soon and I think it’s going to be excellent.
So, by way of apology, there’s going to be a free sample up on Tower of the Hand on Tuesday, which you should check out. Also, there is an additional **free** sneak-peak available to anyone who’s interested in pre-ordering the book…which you can get if you email me through the About page.
I’m going to be doing a bunch of appearances on Unspoiled! Podcast, as Natasha and Miles go through A World of Ice and Fire – the first of which (Episode 376) just landed today, and which will continue for several weeks.
If you’re interested in hearing Natasha and Miles cover WOIAF, you should probably go back to Episode 372, when they start to go through the book (I come in a bit later, when they’re discussing the Targaryen kings section).
