RFTIT Tumblr Weekly(ish) Roundup, Part I

Hey folks! With Jaime IV done, I’m a bit at loose ends – I need to do Druon Part II, but I’m not really feeling it, so I might go ahead with Dunk & Egg Part I or more ASOS chapters – but in the mean-time, we’ve gone some tumblrs:




Non-ASOIAF Content: Book Announcement

As you all know, in my day job I’m a historian of public policy. And I’m very pleased to announce that my first academic book, People Must Live By Work: Direct Job Creation in America, from FDR to Reagan, is now available from University of Pennsylvania Press. (You can buy a copy here and here, hint hint.)

I know that 20th Century U.S social and economic policy is a far cry from Medieval Europe, but if you’re curious to know what’s been keeping me from devoting every waking hour to writing about A Song of Ice and Fire, here’s your chance! And if the topic interests you, I’m hosting a book club over at Lawyers, Guns, and Money.

RFTIT Tumblr Weekly(ish) Roundup (Part I)

One of the unintended consequences of taking a long time to finish an essay – the Maurice Druon essay is up to about 1000 words, btw – is that a lot of Tumblr stuff piles up in the mean time. So just eye-balling it, I’m guessing that it’s going to take more than one post to clear my backlog. Speaking of which…



RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup (Part II)

Quotes have been put into the outline for Sansa III, which is going to be a rather difficult essay to write, because it requires a very delicate touch. The mountain of signature books has been successfully moved from front door to living room, so I plan to start signing them tomorrow.

In the mean-time, lots more Tumblrs:



RFTIT Tumblr Weeklyish Roundup

Hey folks, I want to let people know that, now that Volumes I and II of Race for the Iron Throne are in print, my editor and I are working on Kickstarter fulfillment: first, we’re working on putting in orders for all the people who ordered print copies, which we’ll ship directly to their addresses; second, we’re also putting in orders for people who ordered signed copies, which will be shipped to me so I can sign them and then ship them out.

In the mean time, we’ve got some tumblrs:



Non-ASOIAF Content Corner: Avengers Infinity War Edition

So a whole lot of people went to go see Avengers: Infinity War over the weekend, and I was one of them so that I could discuss the film with the good folks at Graphic Policy Radio. We talk about the movie for about an hour and a half, and we get very, very spoilery. So definitely give a listen only if you’ve seen the film and follow comic book movie news, or if you don’t care about spoilers at all.
