Leslie's Omnibus


I rarely buy books that aren't on Kindle, but I'm making an exception for one. According to George R.R. Martin:
I'm delighted to be able to announce the forthcoming publication of a new, deluxe, limited edition of A GAME OF THRONES, to be published by my friends at Subterranean Press, and illustrated by the massively talented TED NASMITH.

Ted is widely considered to be one of the "Big Three" of Tolkien illustrators; along with Alan Lee and John Howe, he has brought Middle Earth to life like no one else. And he he is no stranger to my own world, either. Ted painted the all of the wonderful landscapes for the gorgeous 2011 Ice & Fire calendar, with what I consider to be THE definitive depictions of thirteen of the great castles of Westeros.
Zing! Right to the top of my wish list with a bullet.

Speaking of GRRM, cartoonist Bill Amend clearly thinks like me.

Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! There's only one Baby and only one Johnny Castle.

Leave It. The Fuck. Alone.

A new study finds that most people hit by cars in the city are in a crosswalk

They need to make a law banning some movies from ever being remade. Frickin' Hollywood.
