Last Year (Publications)

I had lots of books come out last year. Old books, like the Tor reissue of the fifth volume of Wild Cards (DOWN & DIRTY), and new books like the Dunk & Egg collection A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS, the GAME OF THRONES adult coloring book, the OLD VENUS anthology.



I talked about them all in my Famous Lost Post. To tell the truth, I don't recall what I said. Maybe it wasn't important.

Oh, wait... I did say something about A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS debuting high on the bestseller lists in both the UK and the US... and how gorgeous the Gary Gianni artwork was, what an absolutely lovely volume... oh, and what a hoot it was when A GAME OF THRONES ascended briefly to #1 on the NEW YORK TIMES mass market list. Quite a feat for a book originally published in 1996.

Anyway, that was some of my good stuff in 2015.

(And I have the nagging feeling maybe I've even forgotten a publication or two in this retelling. Which I did not do first time around. So be it).

A knight of the seven kingdoms
I bought a knight of the seven kingdoms a couple months ago. Even though I had previously read the stories in their original anthologies, I found that the gorgeous illustrations by Gary Gianni added a whole new feel the travels of dunk and egg, I mean absolutely gorgeous detailed illustrations. One of my instant favorites!
Knowing somewhat the end to their lives due to The world of ice and fire, and somewhat the beginnings because of A knight of the seven kingdoms I think this period right now is really cool because it feels like real history where large gaps of time in history are a mystery due to not all of the information being unearthed yet.
Thanks for the fun, and more dunk and egg to come...

Congrats on all the releases. :) Productive year. I still need to get the colouring book. Is there a Joffrey colouring page? I know most people hate him. I want to get it regardless though but he is my favourite character(you probably don't hear that often). Haha.

Thank you for going out of your way to give your fans anything at all and putting up with those who are rude and demanding. You really go the extra mile and it is both recognized and appreciated.

NOT About Winds of Winter
I am a fan and have been since TV's "Beauty and the Beast", so many years ago. (I was watching a particularly complicated and fascinating episode and remarked, "That's super TV. I wonder who wrote it.In reading your books and stories of the last years I want to thank you for being the best Fantasy/SF writer to use colors effectively. Only Jack Vance used color descriptions to make things real...and perhaps not as well as you do.

Old Venus
One of the books hat I got with the Amazon Gift Card my mother got me for Christmas is Old Venus. I am looking forward to reading it. Love the old classics by Leigh Brackett and CL Moore. Will be interesting to see new works in that style.
