    I love these books so far. I'm in book 2 and loving it. I'll tell you what I like...it's the MAPS! Ever since I was a kid I loved maps and the detail is pretty cool. I'm thinking of getting that MAP books thingy...I saw it at the store the other day.

    Also, two questions for the experts:

    1) Is there a "encyclopedia" in the works? Not necessarily by GRRM but maybe someone else? I could use something like that.

    2) What's the best way (ie cheapest) of getting those "prequel" novels? Ham and eggs or some such (lol). I've looked for these but evidently they only exist in compilations...I'm not real interested in that.

    As for the other books....if you're looking for the cheapest way, well then I suppose you'll be needing a good pirate .....

    Hey Jom...I have had a few beers but I think I posted somewhere along the line that some sort of compendium was in the works. I may be totally off, not sure...but if there isn't an official one on the table I guarantee there will be some unlicensed one sooner rather than later. I will try to substantiate.

    Hey JD!

    So to answer your question, Cirian Hinds does not strike me as a dude to forsake his vows because there's a red thread in his robe. He doesn't strike me as a dude who makes his way over the wall and pretends to be a bard just for the adventure of it. And he doesn't strike me as a charismatic leader who brings the tribes together due to personality and respect.

    He strikes me as an old, grim motherf***er.

    Great as Caesar, not so much as Rayder.

    While I see your points I steadfastly disagree. I think we shall see. So far they have aged him down considerably(at least visually...the beatles haircut...c'mon). And the second episode he was even more playful than the first. I think Hinds is a good enough actor that he will win you over. You cannot expect to visually believe in some young face being able to unite the clans. Even the children beyond the wall look haggard.

    Edit: Just in case you non book readers accidentally clicked on the wrong thread. DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!










    So which major event do you think will happen in this season? The red Wedding, Joffrey's death or maybe both? I'm leaning towards the Red Wedding. It seems like they are speeding toward it.

    It's going to be the RW for sure. I know for a fact it's been filmed. But, judging by the previews...I'm not sure that Joffs big moment won't make the cut too. We can't talk about it on the show thread but I am wondering what The Queen in the North's pregnancy means. AND she is heading for the RW as well. Which is something that does not happen in the book.

    It's been so long since i read the books i forgot she wasnt there. I'd imagine she is toast. You dont hear about her in the later books, so unless Martin is planning on having her show up with a baby in her arms in the next book I dont think she will survive the show.

    So, a dead baby is just more emotional fallout from the rw? I don't know...anything else is a serious branch off from the books, unless it was part of what is still unwritten. A baby instantly becomes heir to Winterfell, if you stick with the belief that Bran/Rickon are presumed dead.

    Thats kind of what I'm thinking. I think Bran is going to be the only surviving Stark. I just dont know if he will still be human.
