Reviews of The Wise Man’s Fear, The Crippled God, Death Mask and more. Interviews with Guy Gavriel Kay and Terry Brooks, and a barrage of new Game of Thrones HBO series videos, this time each featuring an individual family. I for one am a little disappointed the House Stark video is set to “private” on YouTube.

A Dance with Dragons gets a release date, and The Wise Man’s Fear gets released. I’m not sure what more I could ask for. Well, how about a review of The Wise Man’s Fear, 3 interviews with Patrick Rothfuss, Rothfuss reading from The Wise Man’s Fear, and the first full-length trailer for the Game of Thrones HBO series. Rockin’.

The week that George R.R. Martin’s publisher announces a release date for A Dance with Dragons, it premiers in first place. With the release of A Wise Man’s Fear, sales of Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind have rocketed the first novel in the series back into the top 3, in Kindle form. Overall a rare fantastic week for epic fantasy.

Fantasy Blogosphere: January 28, 2011

A fairly calm week in the fantasy blogosphere, but anticipation for the Game of Thrones HBO series continues to ramp up as we get closer to the premier in April. This week, HBO released the longest video yet containing clips from the series, overlayed with some of the ‘artisans’ videos they’ve released, and tied together with commentary by the man himself.

Fantasy Blogosphere: January 24, 2011

This week kicks off with the first review I’ve seen yet of the unreleased The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, and follows it up with reviews of two other kings in the genre, namely Neil Gaiman and Brandon Sanderson. Peter S. Beagle celebrates 40 years of The Last Unicorn, we get more than the usual dose of fantasy comic reviews, and even a fantasy magazine review to boot. Its all capped with Sean Bean talking about what its like to portray Eddard Stark in the Game of Thrones HBO series, a new Game of Thrones trailer, and a new Game of Thrones video on the battle tactics used in the series. Sweet.
