    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Based on this thread title, the last line of "Rains of Castamere" should've been: "Beinoff and Weiss send their regards"

    In one of Dany's earlier chapter in ADWD, when the pit fighters come to lobby for the fighting pits to be reopened, one of the fighters says: "Half, he swears it, and Hizdahr is an honorable man" Sounds like Mark Antony's speech in Julius Caesar.

    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    Dune. ASOIAF in space, with added philosophizing. And do read the prequels and sequels. I will probably be fed to a sandworm for saying this, but I think that they are actually worthy prequels and sequels to the series, establishing the Thinking Machine threat (although the ending of the sequels was a bit deus-ex-Thinking Machine)

    Guy Gavriel Kay

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any of the GGK books in my library except for The Lions of Al-Rassan. It's a very, very, good book (loved the ambiguous ending of the final pre-epilogue chapter and the epilogue was very touching!) but it's just not fantasy. It's a historical novel about medieval Iberia with all the names and some of the geography and religious doctrines changed.

    [No Spoilers] EP305 Discussion

    Awesome episode, probably my favorite. Arya scenes awesome as usual. Tyrion is fantastic as ever, possibly more (his FACE when they tell him he's marrying Sansa!) LOVED Shireen and her little song, I cracked up!

    How would you rate episode 303?

    Was pleasantly surprised to see Ser Jorah's 'And Rhaegar Died' line, although it wasn't really as powerful as in the books (maybe because in ASOS it's the final line of a chapter and so has more punch.) Since I mostly skimmed the Jaime chapters in ASOS I didn't know at what point Jaime's hand gets cut off, but when Locke had him pushed down and was holding the knife I knew this was it... but I was still surprised when Locke seemed to relent, then SLASH! 'A bear there WAS!'

    I'm re-reading ACOK, and in the prologue Maester Cressen tells Melisandre: "Only children fear the dark." Which is obviously a reference to GRRM's story 'Only Kids are Afraid of the Dark' that was first published in a fanzine in the 60s, and was reprinted in Dreamsongs Vol.1 Sorry if someone posted this before, search isn't working.
