Read an Excerpt from Book 6 of Game of Thrones!

Okay, the title is technically incorrect as that should be Book 6 of the series A Song of Ice and Fire. After HBO’s treatment of the epic fantasy series, though, I think that more people recognize the title Game of Thrones. While that may turn off some purists, I think that what happened is still […]

This Game of Thrones Theme Cover Will Get Your Blood Pumping

If you haven’t watched HBO’s Game of Thrones yet, you really owe it to yourself to set aside time to watch it. In spite of the criticism that it has received – essentially due to being NSFW – the TV series based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books is fast […]

The Inn at the Crossroads: Real Food from Game of Thrones

One of the things that always fascinates me in stories (especially fantasy) is the food. Well, the same can be said of real life, but there is something to be said about how authors of fantasy books describe food. I suppose that given the immense amount of creativity necessary to come up with a successful […]

HBO’s Game of Thrones: Not Your Ordinary “Boy Fiction”

HBO’s Game of Thrones is definitely not fit for viewing during the Lent, but I have been putting it off for a while now – well several days – and I figured there’s no better time to watch it than now. I have been raving about George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire […]

New Song of Ice and Fire Figures!

Normally, I have misgivings about my favorite books being turned into TV series and movies, but with Martin himself being […]

Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones

Winter is coming, and George R.R. Martin readers cannot wait till Spring 2011, when it actually does. Confused? In a world where the Starks, the Lannisters, and the Targaryens are the main players, summers last for decades, and so does winter. The longer and more pleasant the summer is, the colder the winter will be. […]

Song Of Ice And Fire Miniatures By Dark Sword

I have this colleague whose cubicle at work looks like a toy store’s window display. Seriously, he must have thousand of dollars worth of toys tastefully arranged all around his PC. It’s a toy-lover’s paradise. Over the years, he kinda imparted a bit of his enthusiasm to me; and when I heard that Dark Sword […]

Fantasy TV Series To Look Out For

I have always been a fan of fantasy novels. Some say that these stories are for children, but as the great C.S. Lewis said, “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.” Today, “children’s stories” and fantasy novels have reached such a state that […]
