The Price of Our Sins

And here's yet another trailer, this one called "The Price of Our Sins."

(I told you I'd fallen way behind).

For more, do visit the HBO website. You'll find all these trailers there, along with all sorts of other cool behind-the-scenes videos, and character profile pieces on Robb, Joffrey, Renly, and other characters.

Can't wait to see this! Currently enjoying my Season 1 DVD boxset.

I can´t wait to see it but because I´m German I´ll have to wait much longer... :-( In the meantime I enjoy the books, just started another one last night and I just can´t stop, I open the books and fall into the world of Westeros and all the characters, too good and the evil ones... It´s so amazing and seeing all those trailers for seaons two makes me more and more excited to watch it, the books are amazing and the show too. I know it before, I´m born in the wrong country. :-(

I wonder how it must feel to you that your books are turned into a series... I guess you´re very proud of what you have done, and you can be proud, the books amazing, I can´t say how much I love the story, the details, all that, I wish you would never stop to write this wonderful story of a Song of Ice and Fire!

1. This ALL looks amazing. I can't wait! I even actually found a local place to buy capon for my viewing party! Hahaha.

2. This is kind of random and I'm sure you've been told similar things time and time again, but still... I wanted to thank you for how you write your female characters. I didn't realize just how important this is to me until recently. I listen to A LOT of audiobooks on the job. I started a fantasy trilogy someone suggested to me that shall remain nameless, and had to stop listening halfway through the second book. All of the women in the stories were written the same- one-dimensional, nagging and over-emotional. It told me a lot about the author and his real life relationships. Hahaha! I just couldn't take it anymore!

But it DID make me appreciate how insanely WELL you write your characters (male AND female alike). There is so much depth and complexity to each an every one... they feel almost real. You feel like you know them. (Which I imagine is why the words can actually draw tears when characters die... that's not an easy thing to accomplish, at least not where I am concerned. Haha).

Anyways... long story short- Thank you for being awesome. ;)

(and I'm about to dive into some inhumane overtime hours on 'ol Ender's Game... so if you have any book series you love and could recommend (I've done everything with your name on it more times than I can count, hahaha) I'd be more than eager to give them a listen. Helps the day go by!)

Images on the throne
Dear George R.R. Martin: Saw pictures theirs sitting in the legendary throne of the saga wrote (TV) and I like to get them for use in a publication of local cinema. Is this possible? they should have not less than 150 dpi. ¡Many thanks! Serge Pineau.

Re: Images on the throne
That's not my call, I'm afraid. You'll need to check with HBO.

I shall do so. Thanks a lot. Greetings from Argentina.

The Other
George, I have come to bring your attention to a matter of some importance. Rothfuss is good, but can't compete with you yet. We both know that. We indulge the idea as we would a young child.

There is one who can.

Steven Erikson's Malazan Series is ranked #2 on bestfantasybooks.com. You're #1. Rothfuss is #3.

Erikson is the one you need to watch out for. Rothfuss is still a young upstart. Erikson writes with your maturity. And I dare say there is nothing he wants more than your crown. While you are of necessity distracted by your own successes, he toils in a bare room perfecting his craft.

Re: The Other
If there was a "crown," Jack Vance would be wearing it. The greatest living fantasist and science fiction writer.

But the great thing about literature is that there is room for many princes (and princesses). This is a golden age for epic fantasy, Rothfuss, Erikson, Abercrombie, Abraham, Scott Lynch, Robin Hobb, so many more... there are riches all around, and good books coming out every week.

Re: The Other
If I should start reading Jack Vance, where should I begin? Considering that I loved Rothfuss and GRRM, I think we have common groud, and I am probably going to love Jack Vance but he has a couple of series - The Dying Earth, Lyonesse, The Demon Princes Series, The Cadwal Chronicles, etc. or some of his non-series books ?

Re: The Other
Depends on whether you enjoy both fantasy and science fiction, or just fantasy, or just SF, or...

The Demon Prince series (five books) is a great great read. The Planet of Adventure series (four books) is also terrific. Both of those are SF, however.

For fantasy, the Dying Earth sequence is marvelous, although it begins with a short story collection (THE DYING EARTH) that is not to everyone's taste (though I think it's bloody gorgeous myself). The Lyonesse trilogy is a more classic fantasy trilogy, and also first rate.

Re: The Other
Thank you for the advice.

Now thinking about it, I just realized that I've never read sci-fi. I like watching science fiction (tv shows or movies) but I've not tried any sci-fi book. Will I like it? Will I not? The Demon Prince would be my next fiction series. Hmm, yes.

And Dying Earth sounds different enough from what I've read that I am probably going to like it.
Anyway, my point was ... thanks.

All I see is Brienne and Osha. I am okay with this.

Beautiful preview, as always, George. Only five more weeks...

Recent trailer
I am hoping that Cersei, acts like Cersei this season....I really did not like what she was like last season. She just annoyed me, rather than loving her being a such a snake.

Gravestone near Parris's relation's gravestone.
GRRM, I was walking in a cemetary today where Parris's great-great-great....grandmother is buried. About 20 feet from that gravestone is a gravestone where John Snow is buried. How is that for coincidence?

Sorry for going off-topic, but I thought you would find it interesting.

It the video only acting glitchy on me, then? Boo-urns =(

Clash of Kings was probably my favorite of the books so I'm looking forward to the season 2 DVD. I keep watching the part where Renly tells stan is no one wants him for their king and hearing Graham Chapman reply "you don't vote for kings!"

Ghost Noises...
Hey George...

Seeing that you read these, I was wondering why in the HBO series they have Ghost barking and making other sounds. To the best of my recollection in your story Ghost never made any sound except for when John first heard him when he found him (and that could have easily just been a psychic link rather than any actual sound heard by anyone else). Your story is my all-time favorite, & I really like the job HBO is doing, but this just seems like a glaring error on HBO's part.
