Love Them Heifers

froggy
Who says that Cersei Lannister is a cold, calculating, uncaring sort of queen?

Far from it. Her Grace loves the simple folk, and to prove it, here's a swell new picture of her getting all nekkid just to help them buy some cows, sheeps, and goats...

MartinPinup

The art is by Lee Moyer, a lover of the classic pin-up girl and doer of good deeds. It's part of his soon-to-be-released 2013 Literary Pin-Up calendar, all of the proceeds of which will go to Worldbuilders on behalf of Heifer International.

Cersei will be in good company. This year's calendar also features brand new, never before pin-ups of characters created by Peter S. Beagle, Ray Bradbury, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, Neil Gaiman, Charlaine Harris, Robin Hobb, N.K. Jemisin, Terry Pratchett, and Patrick Rothfuss. All guaranteed saucy. So if you're a lover of fantasy, of "good girl" art, literature, the female form, or feeding the world's poor... actually, helping them feed themselves... this is a calendar you need to have.

Best of all, you can pre-order NOW. Just go to:

My hat is off to Lee Moyer, and to the tireless and talented Patrick Rothfuss, who put this whole thing together. "If we can get the word out," Rothfuss writes, "I know it will raise a lot of money for Heifer International." Let's make it so, boys and (yes) girls.

> pin-ups of characters created by
I clearly see it's Amanda Palmer on Gaiman's page. Is she a fictional character? I knew it!

Seconded. Guys can look just as charming and ditzy as old-school "good girls" - and you double the market for your charity product as well ;)

Indeed, Cersei's pic gives the Lannisters' motto a whole new meaning :D

BAHAHAHAHA BAHAHAHAHA!!!

So, when I read this on Neil Gaiman's blog, I thought for some reason it was going to be pinups of the AUTHORS, not of their characters. I was wondering how yourself and Peter S. Beagle were going to feel about being pinups...

(Although mind you, my uncle and a bunch of average dudes from a small town did a tastefully concealed nude calendar for a library fundraiser some years back which was truly awesome....like Calendar Girls but with hairy old men. And one hot young firefighter...)

Are you suggesting that I am not hot and young?

I am deeply wounded.

I already ordered one (how could I not?), but wouldn't mind a male version either. ;) Well, as long as it's not Joffrey then. Wouldn't do any good to be aggressive an entire month.

Very nice
Wouldn't mind "hearing her roar" if you know what I mean.

I've never been this excited for a calendar before.

And I agree, the direwolf pelt is great!

As I told Parris long ago, Cersi's motto is "He ain't heavy; he's my brother."

Football
Mr. Martin: You have posted recently regarding the National Football League. That brings to mind page 375 in the Bantam paperback edition of A Storm of Swords, where Dany hears "...the faint creak of wood, water lapping against the hull, a FOOTBALL [my caps] on the deck above her head."

Ouch! For me, the reader, it was like stepping on a nail when I came across that. I presume it should have been 'footfall' and some cub editor at Bantam sailed past it while sneaking a look at his/her text messages. Or, did you really mean football?

Speaking of calendars... do they have clocks and calendars in Westeros, because I am reading The Measure of Reality: Quantification and Western Society, 1250-1600. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997, by Alfred W. Crosby
and he says the clock was probably invented in the 1270's, in 1314 Caen installed a clock on a bridge, clocks are refered to in Dante's Paradiso (circa 1320), in 1335 Galvano della Fiamma describes a clock that hammers each hour of the day (1 strike for 1 am, 2 strikes for 2 am etc) because clocks didn't yet have faces or hands. The famous Strasbourg clock was begun in 1352 and finished in two years... Crosby also speculates that the clock was invented by a member of the Cistercian order (who were technologically inclined because their abbots were certain that grace somehow correlated with efficiency). He also speculates that it was invented in Northern Europe, where the seasonal variation in day lenght and and the inequality of the unequal hours was greater than in Mediterranean Europe and the water in water clocks more apt to freeze. Northern France, the motherland of Gothic architecture and polyphony where innovation was bounding haead in the 13th century seems a sensible choice.
So having come across this wonderful knowledge, I was unable to stop myself from sharing it.
