52431 I was a bit underwhelmed with the first one too, but I read the first of the new generation and loved it. It was Inside Straight.

I need to get back to those.

I had put this on the GoT funny pics thread, but then thought it should be here because possible spoilers to those that don't watch...

52431 Here's a Kickstarter project that looks great. It's an anthology of villain POV stories.

It's for this book: Evil is a Matter of Perspective: An Anthology of Antagonists

Lots of great authors there.

52431 Well, after glancing at your shelves I see that you've read some Erikson (and liked it). That third book is brilliant, if you haven't gotten to it....

If you're looking for shows that are character driven and full of badassery, you could binge The Walking Dead or Sons of Anarchy. If you haven't seen them already. Breaking Bad is also good. Those are some of my favorite shows ever.

With books I don't think I've ever found anything that quite scratches that ASOIAF itch. Plenty of great stuff out there, but don't believe all those "it's like Game of Thrones" blurb tags you see on everything fantasy.

I'd recommend Joe Abercrombie or Steven Erikson. Both are very good. Abercrombie does grimdark with a sense of humor, and Erikson is very very in depth/epic. Both authors are willing to push the boundaries too.
52431 I would personally LOVE to see Season 7 open with a scene of Gendry sitting in his boat and watching Dany's fleet sail past, with dragons and Reavers and everything.

HBO isn't ready to lose its cash cow and all the people that will drop it as soon as GoT is over. So stretch it out as long as possible.
52431 Hmm, now I wonder if Kit Harrington's middle initial is N.

Kit N
