Bastards of Kingsgrave continues our reviews of George RR Martin’s earlier works, this time providing spoiler filled discussion about the macabre short story Meathouse Man. We also chat about the recent Hugo nominatedgraphic novel adaptation, drawn by Raya Golden.
Notes: The short story is most readily available in Dreamsongs Volume 1. We will be continuing our Martinsphere reviews, but at a less regular rate. Our first novel to review will be Dying of the Light.

Bastards of Kingsgrave continues our reviews of George RR Martin’s earlier works, this time providing spoiler filled discussion about Remembering Melody and Portraits of His Children. We dig deep into the latter story, trying to draw parallels with George’s own publication history.
Notes: This episode was recorded the week before San Diego Comic-Con 2014. The two short stories are most readily available in Dreamsongs Volume I and Volume II respectively, among other publications. Congratulations to Amber and Greg for joining the exclusive Triple Gold Club.

We've been dubbed the "intersection between A Song of Ice and Fire and everything else." We are also the only podcast currently doing a reread of George RR Martin's earlier works.

Warning: Most episodes are PG-25 and contain references and spoilers for George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, the source material for HBO's Game of Thrones. That being said, there shouldn't be anything comprehensible beyond season 4 of the show.
