That is good to hear. I know of a couple of illustrations that didn't make it into the previous edition. It would be nice to see them in finished form if they are those we are getting there.

@Ran

Can you tell us anything new about the Sunspear situation? Or any other corrections that made it into FaB?

This errata list is pretty thorough.

No idea what has been updated, but did raise that and some other errata on a couple of occasions with Anne and her editorial assistant.

I think I made that suggestion already back when the Sunspear thing came up, but so what:

There is a chance to add a paragraph or two about the curious case that Sunspear was never destroyed at the very end of the 'The Wars of King Aegon I' chapter. If I'm not mistaken there is half a page or more empty at the end of the chapter, meaning pagebreak and other such things wouldn't really be affected.

Starting along the lines of 'One of the most curious developments in the First Dornish War was the fact that all of the Dornish castles were consumed by dragonfire more than once but for Sunspear itself. Dozens of maesters and acolytes in the Citadel have discussed this over the years...' and then give all the reasons you and George came up with why Sunspear was never targeted.

I wonder if the news that the next tv show is based on it means that more critics won’t dismiss it out of hand.

the attitude in November 2018 seemed to be “screw a new lore book, what’s the Night King going to do in Season 8?!”

What have they to say now?

I already own the hardcover and the ebook, so I probably won't buy this version, but I will definitely stop by Barnes & Noble to look at all the new pictures :D

I was really disappointed when I got my copy of the illustrated ACOK and saw that it was only one illustrator. AGOT had such an incredible collection of illustrators featured, and I was hoping that they were going to do the same with ACOK.
