RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey, folks! So my class got started, but what with the (edge of the) polar vortex, I’ve been feeling hibernaty and not really in the mood to write recently. I hope to rectify this in the coming week where I won’t be as cold or as busy.

In the mean-time, we’ve got some good stuff in the Tumblrs.

Guest Appearance on Boiled Leather Audio Hour!

The Boiled Leather Audio Hour

Hey folks! In lieu of another Fire & Blood essay – I start teaching on Monday and finishing my syllabi and readings and lectures comes first – here’s a podcast I recorded with Stefan Sasse over at Boiled Leather Audio Hour:

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks! I’m hip-deep in preparing for a brand-new course, so it’ll take a while for me to get through the next (incredibly long) Fire & Blood chapter. After I’m done with the reign of Jaehaerys I, I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from Fire & Blood, finish off (my version of) the Hour of the Wolf, and get back into doing some ASOS chapter essays.

In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs.

Book Announcement!

Hey, folks! Just wanted to let you know that the last of the Kickstarter books, Kings, Hands, and City-States, is now available in paperback.

People who ordered a copy during the Kickstarter will be getting theirs mailed out soon, but if you didn’t have a chance to back then, you can now order your own copy!

And as always, if you enjoy the book, please do leave a review.

Check it out!

Grading is done, the holidays are almost done, so I finally have some time to catch up on my Tumblring. It’s a bit of a light mailbag b/c of the aforesaid grading and holidaying, but there’s some good stuff here:

Guest Appearance on the Notacast…Podcast

This week, I have a special treat for you: BryndenBFish and PoorQuentyn were kind enough to invite me onto their podcast to discuss one of my favorite chapters in A Game of Thrones, Eddard XI. Join us as we discuss medieval power politics, the posthumous reputations of Ned Stark and Tywin Lannister, and many other topics.

You can listen above or wherever you download your podcasts.

RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

It’s a little unclear what the long-term impact of the great de-Tumblring of 2018 will be; in the short-term, I built a backup WordPress site so that I won’t lose anything I’ve written (for whatever reason, the backup is taking a while to complete, but most of my posts have been transferred over). So as I wait to see which way the fandom will jump, I’ll keep on answering people’s asks and rounding them up here:
