timed to coincide with our landmark 50th episode, George R.R. Martin
has released, or rather read, a brand new sample chapter from The Winds of Winter,
and Sean & Stefan are tackling it in our third podcast in a month!
Suitably, it’s a biggie: Entitled “The Forsaken,” it’s told from the
perspective of Aeron “the Damphair” Greyjoy as he’s held prisoner by his
increasingly frightening brother Euron Crow’s Eye. How does this
chapter function as prophecy, as plot mover, as horror fiction, as
Lovecraftian homage? How far are we willing to go with predictions as to
what it all means for the future? What is Euron’s true motivation? Is
the apocalypse now? Listen and find out!
