In Memoriam

For those of you who were not able to come to San Diego for Comicon... or get into Hall H for the GAME OF THRONES panel... here's the video that kicked off the proceedings, a tribute to all those we have loved (or not) and lost during the first three seasons of the show.



Seen all together like that, it does make me seem rather a bloody bastard, doesn't it?

In my own (feeble) defense, however, let me point out that Irri, Rakharo, the Thirteen of Qarth, Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Mago (not seen in the video), and Pyat Pree are all still alive and well (more or less) in the books as of the end of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.  Like the guys in Spinal Tap, David and Dan do like to turn things up to 11.

Robb's wife is alive in the novels too, but Jeyne Westerling is an entirely different person than Talisa Maegyr with an entirely different fate.  Ros does not exist in the books, but of the characters she replaced, Kyra is dead, but Chataya and Alayaya are still around.

As to where we go from here... season four is coming, and no one is safe on GAME OF THRONES.

Not even those who you think might be safe for another book or two, from reading my novels.

The leaving Dead
Does this mean you don't plan to use any of those that died in the TV show and not in the books ?

Re: The leaving Dead
Not at all. If they are alive in the books, they are alive in the books, and may well turn up again. Irri (and Jhiqui) is still serving as Dany's handmaid, Rakharo remains one of her bloodriders, Mago will definitely show up again. You will learn the fate of Pyat Pree in WINDS. The Thirteen are still one of the factions contending for power in Qarth. You may see more of Alayaya and Chataya as well, and you will definitely hear more of Jeyne Westerling.

Re: The leaving Dead
Thanks for the wonderful tease! Now I'm dreading the conspiracy theories that will spring up like mushrooms on certain Websites . Sincerely looking forward to saying hi once again in San Antonio and perhaps hear your take of the fates that must befall The Dallas Troll and Evil Little Bill :)

Re: The leaving Dead
I just like how people get excited with these books and start to create more c theories.

Poor Old Nan. Will we never hear of her again? I miss her crazy, bald-headed, elderly butt.

Re: The leaving Dead
If she's dead, she did have a pretty damn good long run - much more than many others in this world are given.
