Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows

  • Sep. 4th, 2012 at 2:33 PM

So as most of you know, I've been a massive fan of George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, for quite some years now.  I've read the books multiple times, I blog about the HBO series in great detail, I've participated in roundtable discussions about the HBO series with some of George's biggest fans, and I was even a guest geek on The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy, wherein I discussed A Dance with Dragons with co-hosts John Joseph Adams & David Barr Kirtley.

Now I get take to my admiration to a new level.  The good folks at Tower of the Hand--some of the biggest fans of Westeros, Essos, and all related kingdoms--are releasing an e-book of essays dealing with George's brilliant creations.  And while I am not as visible in many of George's fan circles as these fine folks, I feel as though I have been inducted into the offical ranks of uber-fan, because a while back they reached out to me and asked me to contribute an essay to their e-book.

Ah, but what do I write about?  Well, as many of you also know, I'm a huge fan of the NFL ...just like a certain man with the initials of GRRM.  So for my contribution to this project, I have delivered my very own power rankings, NFL style, for the top players of that most nefarious of political activities, the Game of Thrones.  Further details regarding the particulars of my ranking metrics will be detailed in my "power essay."

Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows is scheduled for release on October 13th.  You can read the official press release here.
