Sneak Peeks

Spain
For a sneak peek at the Hound from the 2012 ICE & FIRE calendar, check out John Picacio's blog at http://picacio.blogspot.com/2011/06/2012-asoiaf-calendar-hound-preview.html

John has other sneaks up there as well, and will be giving more peeks in the future.

The calendar will debut at the San Diego Comicon in July, and can be preordered right now from Amazon or your favorite local bookstore.

Oh, and Valyrian Steel has sent me pictures of the prototype of King Robert's warhammer, just received. Here, have a look:



Please note, this is a prototype. Further adjustments will be made before the hammer goes into production. For future details, or to weigh in with your own thoughts and suggestions, go to the Valyrian Steel website at http://www.valyriansteel.com/

We have a somewhat romanticized notion of the 'big block-headed hammer' from Norse superhero comics and such. My experience suggests that there is a relatively small difference between, say, "military pick" and the "military hammer" -- both possess sleek slender curved heads, crafted more for centrifugal force (accelerating as swung), closer to a golf club than a tent-stake mallet.

That said, a big block-headed bludgeon seems better suited to Robert Barratheon's personality. =)
