Game of Thrones update: partway through the third book I started to worry that George Martin had settled into a recursive storytelling pattern of the sort that Wheel Of Time fans know and hate. I’m not worried about that anymore. In other news, for reasons that a few of you can guess Walder Frey (the eldest) is no longer my favorite character in all of literature. Now I find myself hoping with all of my being that HBO will bankroll a spin-off show that features Pyp, Grenn and Dolorous Edd*.
Also, Max. Too.
(*) “Band of Breathers“, maybe.
