"A Dance With Dragons" arrives this summer

George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series proceeds, finally, with a hard publication date of 12 July 2011.

Nine hundred pages? Let’s do this.

LotR II: Sauron's Boogaloo

I would read this. I would read this very much.

The Last Ring-Bearer, by palaeontologist Kirill Yeskov, retells Tolkien’s epic story from the perspective of the region of Mordor, from where Sauron, the Dark Lord, waged war on the free peoples of Middle Earth in the War of the Rings, eventually to be defeated by Gandalf.
But I understand why Tolkien’s estate is displeased. Because they are part of the political machine devoted to suppressing the Mordorian minority’s historical relevance! Er. Or copyright. That.

winter is coming

George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" is my favorite contemporary fantasy series, so I am both thrilled and concerned about the upcoming HBO adaptation.

A friend pointed out the "Winter is Coming" news and rumors blog and now I am well and truly excited.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
