These worldbook "sidebars" are all threatening to turn into novellas.

Sure hope you guys and gals like fake history.

Fake histories are often more interesting than real history. The background history authors such as yourself, Tolkien, Jordan, etc. write fascinate me, so more power to you!

I read The Silmarillion and enjoyed it, what does that tell you?

I thought real history already was pretty much imaginary history. ;^p

Mr Martin, I know this isnt the right place but I was wondering something about Asoiaf, a tiny question I hope you will have time to answer:

Dalla is older than Val right ? Val is the little sister ?

Monty Python?

[slightly, but only slightly, off-topic]

Do I see the faintest hint of a recurring Monty-Python referential gag?

"Hacking off some boy's stones with a butcher's cleaver and handing him a pointy hat don't make him Unsullied. That dragon queen's got the real item, the kind that don't break and run when you fart in their general direction..."

"We are fighting shrubbery, Asha thought as she slew a man who had more leaves on him than most of the surrounding trees..."

[...and others...]

I would love a Novella detailing the conflict between the First Men, and what remained of the Children of the Forest, and their conquest by the Andals. Especially the events in Nothern Westeroes in that conflict. How do the Starks hold on? (Being a direct line from the first men.) It my explain how some Children of the Forest escaped as well as the origin/reason of the Others if the people of that time knew.

Of course George, beware! This story may also grow in the telling :-)

Whatever you decide to write, we will quickly purchase and read.

Of the parts of the lore that I had no hope of ever seeing something in this fashion, my favorites are:

-Before EVERYTHING in westeros, like already said before: the first men, the Others invasion etc...

-The Doom of Valyria.

-Brandon Stark and the contruction of the Wall (this one intrigues me the most).



Just saying

In my idealized world, Old Valyria = Melnibone. (Heh.)
