RFTIT Weekly(ish) Tumblr Roundup (Part II)

Now that Bran II is out the door, I’ve got some fun stuff coming up. The elections essay has the quotes added to the outline and about 2 pages roughed out, Davos III is outlined but needs the quotes added, and there should be some more book book news towards the end of the month.

RFTIT Weeklyish Tumblr Roundup (Part I)

Hey folks! Apologies about how long it’s taking to write Bran II – I’m currently up to 6700 words, but I’m slammed with IRL work – so in the mean-time I’ve got some Tumblrs. So much Tumblrs, it turns out, that I’ll probably need to do another this week.



Politics of the Seven Kingdoms: Part IX (Dorne)

Hey folks! After a long delay on my part, I’ve combined and edited together the three parts of my Politics of Dorne essay, which is now up on Tower of the Hand here. This marks the end of one of the longest non-chapter recap essay series I’ve ever done, but which I feel was ultimately a rewarding one.

Hey folks! So unfortunately, the exciting book announcement isn’t quite ready, but the progress reports I’m getting indicate that it’s very close. In the mean-time, since those of us on the East Coast of the U.S are somewhat snowbound, here’s some tumblrs:

Hey folks! Now that Politics of Dorne (and with it, the entire Politics of the Seven Kingdom series) is done, it’s back to ASOS (which I know will make some of you very happy indeed). Also, I should have an exciting book-related announcement in a day or two.

In the mean-time, we’ve got Tumblrs:

Politics of Dorne Part III

With the arrival of Aegon I Targaryen to the Westerosi mainland, we get the most detailed section of Dornish history, with extensive coverage both in the Dorne chapter and the various chapters of the roll of Targaryen monarchs and their foreign policy towards the only foreign kingdom on their content. All the same there are some frustrating silences in the record that leave major questions about Dornish political culture.
