Lord Fred of Mole's Town Posted December 1, 2013 Share Posted December 1, 2013 Ok, fair enough. [Perhaps a thread should be established where honest ASoI&F publishing concerns can be vented without judgment?] Moving on....As others have noticed, Amazon already has some prelim info about TWoI&F, such as length (288 pgs), release date (10/14/2014), and formats (hardback & Kindle). As a Kindle fan who has embraced ereaders since they were introduced, my questions are e-reader centric: 1) I've noticed that the "Lands of Ice and Fire" map book doesn't have a Kindle/ebook equivalent, which is a frustration. [i have had heated discussions where it would be nice to display these maps on a big screen, a wall projection, etc] Since TWoI&F will contain significant artwork, given your insight, how well is it integrated into the ebook? Will the artwork be embedded like the hardback, or will it be accessible via hyperlink (and treated as a separate object)?2) Are there any ebook capabilities (hyperlinks, audio, video, progressive charts, etc) that the ebook version will utilize?3) Can we zoom into the artwork using the finger zoom capabilities of ereaders? 4) Will there be an X-ray feature in the Kindle version (to relate the topics/content)? 5) Combining the issues from #1 and #3 above, will there be a hyperlink between artwork/maps embedded in TWoI&F and the maps from TLoI&F? That would be a dream. :cool4: It goes without saying that the ASoI&F series is a multi-media bonanza. I honestly would like to know if this effort has been thought of as a traditional coffee table hardback book or as a flexible multi-media effort that utilizes the many excellent technological enhancements that the industry has to offer.
