Hey folks! First bit of business: Marc my editor wanted to let you know that Amazon should have sent update emails to anyone with e-book copies of Volume I, so you should definitely go ahead and get that updated so you have the most up-to-date version. Also, work with the physical manuscript is proceeding, although some errant formatting on the website made a bunch of stuff all-caps so that has to be fixed.
On to matters of content. So I’ve put in the quotes to my outline for Tyrion III, and I have a feeling this is going to be a particularly long one, because this is the chapter where the new Small Council divvys up the goods from the War of Five Kings, where Tyrion and Cersei’s marriages are set up, and ultimately where we see the Red Wedding from the (Tywin) Lannister perspective. (I’ve also started writing Politics of Dorne Part II, so there’s plenty of content on the way.) In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs:
- The most Scottish ask ever.
- What does “simple” mean in ASOIAF?
- Why I’m not covering the Crownlands in Politics of the Seven Kingdoms.
- How do nobles recognize one another?
- Urban epidemics in ASOIAF.
- Theon as a foster child:
- A long discussion on Riverlands’ #s.
- On Walder and Tywin.
