SO MAKE MORE! ~Robert Baratheon demands more Game of Thrones episodes... GRRM Dunk and Egg novellas, anyone?
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Game of Thrones!
Stashed in: GRRM
How many days until season 4 begins?
FETCH THE SEASON STRETCHER!!!
1. Re-watch seasons 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones. You'll see a LOT of setup you missed the first time.
2. Read (or re-read!) the books. That will take you a while.
3. Read the Dunk and Egg novellas. Here's some tips on a cost effective way to read them:
"They are short, yes, but quite excellent, and have a lot of cool information about the Targaryens from when the Targaryens were actually in charge."
Seriously, rewatch seasons 1 and 2. There's a lot of good stuff in there.
So it looks like the order of the Dunk and Egg novellas is:
1. The Hedge Knight
2. The Sworn Sword
3. The Mystery Knight
Amazon will also release new digital editions of the out-of-print graphic novels based on Martin's stories The Hedge Knight and The Sworn Sword in November 2013 and early 2014 respectively.
Thank you, this sounds fascinating!
