So what are the incomes of the .01% of Westeros?
The long-anticipated installment of my new Politics of the Seven Kingdoms series is up at Tower of the Hand! In this installment, I explore the historical development of the North into a single polity, how it overcame the disadvantages of geography, how it deals with internal divisions, and its strengths and weaknesses.
Check it out!
Hey folks, thanks for all of your great suggestions about podcast topics. Before I get to the Tumblrs, a few announcements:
So what do we have on the Tumblrs?
Since I recently updated my recording setup and my audio quality has much improved since I did the Battle of Blackwater podcast, I’ve been thinking about doing some one-off podcasts of modest length on various topics, sometimes with other podcasters when I can rope them in and sometimes just doing it solo.
So I wanted to throw this to you good folks: what topics (ASOIAF/WOIAF, fantasy genre, or historical) would you be interested in me covering?
Please put your requests/recommendations/asks in the thread below:
Hey folks! It’s that time of the week again, so let’s see what’s in the Tumblrs:
“He watched the sail grow for a long time, trying to decide whether he would sooner live or die.”
Synopsis: Davos may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger.
Hey folks! As you probably have already seen by now if you’re checking your email, Kickstarter backers just got sent two bonus essays – including the now-complete Politics of the North essay, which weighs in at a whopping 15,000 words. But that’s not all: I’m very happy to announce that my editor’s been making sterling progress on the Race for the Iron Throne Volume 2 e-book, and it should be ready to send out to backers by the end of next week.
If you weren’t able to participate in the Kickstarter, don’t worry, you’ll have a chance to check this stuff out in a bit – the Politics of the North essay will find it’s way to Tower of the Hand after an interval, and the Volume 2 e-book will be going up on Amazon.com as soon as we can get it up.
Hey folks! It’s that time of the week again, as Tyrion I is finished and work on Davos I (which should be a much quicker write-up) gets underway. So let’s see what the Tumblrs have in store:
“While Tyrion lay drugged and dreaming, his own blood had pulled his claws out, one-by-one.”
Synopsis: All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
Three in a row…that’s not good. In my defense, Tyrion I is now up to 5900 words and I’m almost done with the Political Analysis section, so I hope to have that up on Monday.
So what do we have on the ol’ Tumblrs?
