Hello darkness, my old friend
Season 6 of HBO’s Game Of Thrones premieres on Sunday, and fans will finally get answers to the burning questions that last year’s finale left them with. Is that guy, the handsome one, dead? What’s going on with the dragon lady? What shit is the creepy guy going to get into this year, and what inexplicable accent will…
As regular readers know, we’ve previously advanced the theory that George R.R. Martin, author of the popular A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels, hasn’t produced a new entry in his best-selling series in five years because he has no pages. (To put things into perspective, Martin has published one unfinished ASOIAF…
It’s been just one year since season five of Game of Thrones, but it feels like forever. And there are so many fiendish details to recall, before season six begins on April 24. Who’s dead? Who’s down and out? Who’s on top? Watch our handy three-minute video recap!
One of the most engrossing facets of George R.R. Martin’s five-book A Song Of Ice And Fire saga is just how big the world is.

George R.R. Martin’s novels about Westeros are fiendishly addictive, because he’s created a world that’s just crammed full of amazing details. And Game of Thrones captures that feeling pretty well—until you read Martin’s guidebook, The World of Ice and Fire and realize just how much more there is. On almost every…
Few authors have as much power to draw you in with fun characters and thrilling adventures—and then crush your spirit utterly—as George R.R. Martin. But the latest way that Martin managed to make me lose all hope for humanity was especially sneaky. And just tremendously soul-shredding.
Fans of A Song Of Ice And Fire—the books on which the popular HBO drama Game of Thrones are based—have a lot of theories. Some are about Jon Snow’s true parentage; some are about whether Brandon Stark ate his friend Jojen Reed; some are about whether Tyrion Lannister is the product of Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo…

Winter hasn’t arrived yet on Game of Thrones, but there’s still a bit of “winter of our discontent” going on. Season five veered way off George R.R. Martin’s road, with shall we say mixed results. Here’s how to get Thrones back on its game.
