Game Of Thrones Book Club | Exploring The World Of Ice And Fire

Listen to the Podcast

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Terri Schwartz (@terri_schwartz) return for another installment of the Game of Thrones Book Club podcast — and this time, it’s a heavy emphasis on “book club.”

In this episode, Josh and Terri dig into “The World of Ice and Fire,” the massive coffee table book released in October by George R.R. Martin, co-authored by Elio M. García Jr. and Linda Antonsson of The book chronicles the sprawling histories, characters and cultures throughout the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and well beyond.

It’s an epic book in size and scope, and both Josh and Terri consider it a must-read for anyone obsessed with the world of “Ice and Fire.” The podcast explains why, complete with a deep-dive into an empowered and controversial theory about Tyrion Lannister’s lineage, Princess Nymeria of the Rhoyne and her Ten Thousand Ships, the tumultuous Targaryen legacy, the presence of an oily black evil in and outside of Westeros, a closer look at Asshai-by-the-Shadow, and much more.

Plus, find out what Josh and Terri have planned for their next installment of the Game of Thrones Book Club!

    Great book club! 10000 ships was my favorite section of the book. The entire story about the Rhoynar is fascinating. I wish you guys would have touched on the letter sent to Aegon, I need to know what it said.

    Your fans want more! I’ve only listened once (so far), but after your mention of the theory of Tyrion’s parentage, I checked the book and it mentions that Aerys took liberties with Tywin’s wife at her bedding. But the twins (Jamie and Circe) are older.

  • Just letting you know I am listening to these! You should post them on YouTube as well, just put up a still image and play the audio, would probably get more “views” that way!

  • TellTale’s GoT game seems interesting, I’ve played the first episode and the 2nd episode is coming at the start of February. I think you guys should talk about it on the next episode for sure, and maybe you could try streaming it on Twitch if you have the chance, I think people would enjoy watching and playing along with you.

    Oy. Henry V? Henry VIII yo. Read some English history to see where some of these ideas came from. Henry VI went catatonic for a year and had intermittent bouts of madness afterwards. Sound familiar?
