Farewell to the Iron Islands

ape
 Fans of fake history rejoice.  I am finally done with the Iron Islands.

 And why does that make me so pleased?  Well, because it was the last little bit I had to write for our long-awaited and much-postponed concordance, THE WORLD OF ICE & FIRE.  Which we've been working on (along with many other things) lo, these many years.  ((And yes, yes, it's late, what else is new?  Please do not blame my faithful collaborators, Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.  They finished their part ages ago, and tossed the ball to me.  What can I say?  I remain as slow as ever.  And I added a lot.))

Anyway, it's done at last.  At least the writing part.  Now it is all in the hands of the artists, and our valiant editor Anne Groell.  (This will be a coffee table book, heavily and lavishly illustrated, so there's LOTS of art)).

World of Ice and Fire jkt - ElioLinda 1

Assuming we don't run into any problems with the art, THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE will be released this fall.  October, I think, but don't quote me on that.

And HEY, this means another monkey is off my back.  Only a couple left gibbering up there now.  That little joker monkey, HIGH STAKES.  And... gulp...

Much Thanks
This is wonderful news.

After reading "The Princess and the Queen" and some of the transcripts of your earlier readings from "The World of Ice and Fire", the hunger for this history book was greatly increased.

Thank you so very much for all the hard work you (and your fellows) have put in.

I am really looking forward to more on The Kings of Winter, extensive family trees of the Great Houses of Westeros, History and Fall of Valyria and it's cities, and hopefully extra information about Asshai under the Shadow.

I did fabricate my own Targaryen family tree after reading TPATQ ( just to make sense of it all to myself, but I'm sure there will be some more surprises waiting to be revealed in this book.

Thanks again for everything.
