Hello - new here.

Name's Andy (not a surprise, given my username ...), I'm British, and living in Oxfordshire. Have been in the RAF for 16 years, and have been reading ASoIAF for 12 of those.

I'm very much enjoying the TV series. Um. That's about it for now, I guess.

Hello all :)

I've been reading ASoIaF since ~2006 and have recently got my husband addicted as well (I feel so proud of myself).

I'm a city girl trying to adjust to life on the farm, and am mom to 2 rescued Great Pyrenees. I love reading everyone's comments and speculations and finally decided to join up!

Hello!

Im brand new to this land. I'm one of those people who didn't know ASOIAF existed until I saw the first episode of TV show called Game of Thrones. I loved it so I did a little research and read the first book in a weekend, followed by the others in the space of a few weeks.

Now I'm a fan!

;)

Ah I missed this one:

Hello, I'm quite new here.

I've read ASoIaF only once but I'm planning to read it again now that the excellent TV show recandeled my love for Martin's work.

I live in Italy (guess where...) and my passions include martial arts, bodybuilding, books and most of all cooking, which I'm quite good at!

Hi! I'm a new reader of the books, who became aware of this great series thanks in large part to the show. I'm currently working through AFFC, and I hope to be finished in time to stand in line outside a book store to buy ADwD.

I was a huge Lost fan, so on a Lost forum I was Sayidfan33, commonly called SF. I love Syrio Forel, and I thus chose SyrioForel33 as my username so I can have the same initials. My real life name is Luis, and I am a student in college.

I hope to get to know the lot of you real well! ASOIAF has become my new addiction, and I'm looking for likeminded fans to talk about the show with. And btw I respect the hell out of all of you who have waited for the new book for five years. :o

My favorite characters are Tyrion and Jaime btw, despite the fact that I hate Lannisters. :)

Hello everybody. By now I'm sure some of you already know me from other places on the net where ASOIAF is discussed. I use the same username on IMDB, and post replies at winter-is-coming.net under my actual name, Josh Parker.

I'm new to this board, but not at all to ASOIAF. I've read the books 3 times, I've seen every episode of the show and I follow the boards pretty closely. It took me a while to get to this board but I've realized that discussing it on the IMDB with all the trolls and non-readers really is counter-productive.

Hi! Obviously, I'm new here. :cool4:

I first got interested in GoT when I read about Sean Bean being in the HBO Series. I'm a huge fan of Sean's and checked out the book last summer. I loved it, then watched the series and of course, laughed a bit when I found out Sean's fate (so like him!)

Then I found out that Martin hadn't finished the series and I have to say, I then decided to stop reading. I couldn't imagine myself getting immersed in 4-5 books, only to not know the ending. And what if Martin takes another 6 years between books? :ohwell:

But two days ago, I couldn't stand it anymore and I bought Clash of Kings and devoured 300 pages yesterday.

I'm hoping/gambling that HBO would never have agreed to do this if Martin hadn't told them he knew the ending. I cannot imagine how you guys must have felt waiting and waiting for Martin to write DoD... I just hope he doesn't take as long with books 6 and 7.

Anyway, I haven't joined a forum in a long time, but I wanted to find a place to talk about the books. :read:

Hello,

New here, I did not know of asoiaf until the show came out, huge Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage fan. I have always been into fantasy, so once I saw the first episode I went straight the the nearest book store and bought all four books. I have now completed all four, as I could not allow the show to be ahead of me, and I cannot wait for July 12 to continue the adventure. I have been looking for every bit of information I can find about the story, which brought me here. I have been reading other posts that interest me for the last couple of weeks and finally signed on as a member the other day. I look forward to conversating with many of you and the illumination that will surely follow. Until then...

Hi! My name is Liz and I am new to the boards. I have been lurking for a bit, reading the book section and hanging out in GC. Just thought I should be all official and say hi!

Hi! Here's one more new member brought by the HBO series - although not in the strict sense.

I first read A Song of Ice and Fire some five years ago and I remember I liked it a lot, but it didn't become a favourite. Being a major fan of epic fantasy, the news of HBO's series made me really excited, especially when I heard it would be starring Sean Bean (and Jennifer Ehle who later dropped out though). After only the first episode I was ready to proclaim it the best TV series ever and better than the book. Fortunately, I got obsessed enough to reread the books and now I have to say I was wrong - they are even better than the awesome HBO series. Martin's writing seriously blew my mind on the second time and I now consider him among my favouritest (fantasy) writers alongside with Tolkien, Le Guin, Hobb and Kay.

Anyway, I'm here to discuss the books and the series, mostly because all my RL friends who are into Martin at all have either read the books ages ago and don't remember anything, or have only started reading after being inspired by the HBO series. Having stalked a bit, I have to say I now have my greedy eyes on the Blood of Dragons mush too...

Welcome.

I also want to take this opportunity to express my jealousy of those, like you, who came to the series only recently. You only have to wait a few weeks for the next book, we've been waiting years and years! Lucky!

Hi everyone!!

My name is Gaby, I'm from Mexico.

I got to know the ASOIAF series through the HBO series which I must say really blow me away! Hope you guys don't mind I'm such s recent fan of GRRM's amazing universe, better late than never, right? and I'm so glad I got to know it!

Sadly the books aren't available here (hope that changes soon now that show is being aired here) but I have manage to get the books and I've just started "A Clash of Kings"

And well, I hope I can make some new friends here, I'm not that used to be in forums or so, but feel free to send me a message or something, it's always great to meet new people and make friends who share your love for something!

Greetings to all!!
