Well, this is normal, we always get our new books in a week or two beforehand, but we keep them in the processing area and don't put them out on the shelf until the actual release date.

The comic book adaptation of A Game of Thrones launches in September. It's from Dynamite Entertainment, with Daniel Abraham scripting from the novel. Interior art is by Tommy Patterson and the variant covers are by Alex Ross and Mike Miller.

Wait... What are all those things around Ned? I don't think I've ever seen them on the show.

One thing I will say right off the bat though, the maps have all been beautifully redrawn, AND we finally have an official map of the Free Cities and western Essos. Huzzah!
As a map nerd, this makes me happy. The maps in past books were decent enough, but I never felt that they conveyed information as well as I wanted them to.

I was one of the ones who managed to get a copy of A Dance with Dragons from Amazon.de. It arrived yesterday, and after a long, nausea-inducing day of reading, I've finished it. I won't, of course, offer so much as a hint of a spoiler here.

The new maps are beautiful, but if anything I find them less readable than the earlier ones because of the elaborate font. Still, others may disagree.

I just put in my pre-order for A Dance with Dragons, along with Ghost Story by Jim Butcher (which releases on July 26). It's gonna be a good month.

How about (not really a spoiler question) -- "Was it worth the wait?"

Or even a generic thumbs up / thumbs down?

Cheers,

Sure. I know there are people out there who don't even want to see non-spoiler reviews, so I'll stick it behind a cut for those people, but again, there are no actual plot spoilers in the comments.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

Lots of reviews of A Dance with Dragons are popping up online, with varying degrees of spoilers. There's a list of them, with notes on how spoilery they are, at Westeros.org. My own review, which includes a spoiler-free modified version of the comments I posted above, and a more formal review with a few mild spoilers, is here.
