|Dunk! Egg! Horse! Art! Procrastination!|
Dunk & Egg riding again, it says on Martin's (not a) blog. More correctly, Dunk & Egg are riding the exact same trails again, experiencing the same three adventures now with some new art depicting the same stuff we had depicted in comic book adaptations.
Yup, I'm still a bit aggravated over the whole A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms announcement. It feels as if they expect the fans to get down on their knees and praise the mighty overlords of publishing for this book. Well okay, I do get it. For people who don't already own the three novellas, this is a nifty and admittedly good-looking product. Obviously. It's more the way it's being marketed that bugs me, I suppose. As if this is something people have been clamoring for; as if this should work as an appeasement of sorts for another long year of waiting (which makes the release date of October 6th hilarious btw).
Well well. That's not what I really came here for today. No sirree. I mean, I may like to moan and bitch from time to time, but, you know. Right? Okay. Oh. What I came for was to mention that I'm almost ready for the massive undertaking of A Feast with Dragons, I just need to find an opening somewhere to get in some reading and writing. I'm also reaching the last fifth of The World of Ice and Fire, so stay tuned for more Ice & Fire-related posts.
