Anyone who has ever ventured to my blog knows how much I love art and I especially love art depicting fantasy settings. So this appealed to me as an art lover. As a reader, I'm very behind in reading this series - I'm only about 200 pages into A Game Of Thrones despite the book being on my shelf since 1996. Gulp!!!
Finally it is getting its day and attending a talk by George R.R. Martin at WorldCon in Melbourne last year shunted the book close to the top of the pile.
I'm loving it - the complexity, the world-building, the intrigue, the language - definitely a keeper.
The other reason why this calendar struck me is because this month, HBO is debuting the TV series Game of Thrones. April 17th for our US readers. Unfortunately, we in Australia have to wait it looks like until July (on Foxtel) - sniff sniff. But I believe it will be worth the wait. It looks like a marvelous production from the clips and images I have seen. Anything with Sean Bean has to be good :) Doesn't he look great on the Iron Throne.
So in honour of this epic fantasy series hitting the screens, I am offering a copy of the 2012 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar (as pictured above). Please comment below by Tuesday 19th April for your chance to win.
This is open internationally to countries the Book Depository delivers to. However this item will not be available for another 4-5 months, so will be delivered then.
Just tell me who is your favourite character is in A Game of Thrones and why.
