I wish Roger Zelazny could have been on there.

No GRRM hand? :(

So what's *your* advice?

Probably "don't break a wedding pact."

I found a weird book

I stumbled on a very weird book. It's called "ReOpen The Princess & The Queen, or The Dying of the Dragons", by a guy called Ythier The Drunken.

There is three different part in it.

First part seems to be an annoted version of Archmaester Gyldayn's "The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens - Being A History of the Causes, Origins, Battles, and Betrayals of that Most Tragic Bloodletting Known as the Dance of the Dragons" made by a guy who call himself Hugor Hill, and with others commentaries maid by Haldon Halfmaester. They claim that they reconstructed the fabled book called sometimes "Blood and Fire" and sometimes
"The Death of Dragons", and that it was a book written by Archmaester Gyldayn. Did you hear about it? The only surviving copy of this one is supposedly hidden away in a locked vault
beneath the Citadel.

Ythier the Drunken says he found this part on a boat called the Shy Maid, somewhere in Essos.

Second part is from Ythier the Drunken himself, and is even weirder than the first part. He claimed to have seen a school of Grey Leviathans coming out of the Honeywine to share a haunch of boiled Grey mutton. And there is some very disturbing things about some specific archmaesters and maesters in it, and some historicals events.

Last part is a cooking recipe by Hugor Hill, with two differents ingredients, a big one and a little one to seasoned it.

Anyway, being from Lys, the common tong is not my native language, so I guess we could tell that the language tricked me, that I did not really understand what all these was about. I eat a lot of easter eggs reading it, and easter eggs made me hallucinate, seing dragons where there was not, that kind of things...

Or maybe I did understood. Maybe this book, in the wrong hand, would be as dangerous as a sword.

Could you tell me what to do with this manuscript? It's 15 000 words-long, and I guess a lot of people would like to read it. But peraphs, as Jaime Lannister told me once, that would spoil the mystery? I would hate to do that.

Anyway, I would love to hear your thought about it. You can send me a raven here: desnouvellesdumonde@gmail.com

Thanks for everything, your work is great.

Other books, full of words
Hello master,

I'm re-rading books that I had for a long time with new eyes, and I find a lot of things who make me think I was a fool for a very long time. I saw that there is others around, readers like me, dremaers, hiding in plain sight.

Forget my previous commentary, I definitly won't spoil the mystery. After all, the World is not ready.

And man needs mystery, and poetry, and romance, and a few unanswered questions, to make him brood and wonder.

Thanks for teaching me all that.
