    Summer is always hard for weekend meetups. People are away mostly. So, we'd still love to read thoughts on the finale. Please post here or on the message board if you are interested in sharing.

    Just realized that this weekend is also Pi-Con in Connecticut . Probably will not be back in time for the Meetup.

    Here's a link to a better version of the ending, including the full choral accompaniment that comes with the credits. (I love choral work. I sang with a chorus for years.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut1VEoOZ2hA

      We would have seated you next to GRR. Next best to being seated next to JRR. :-)

    George at ConCarolinas yesterday spoke about his forthcoming concordance, "The GRRMarillion" is the current working title, which will contain many details of the history of Westeros. One tidbit he mentioned was how the Reynes family was exterminated by the Lannisters, giving rise to the song Rains of Castamere in commemoration. It seems that during a conflict the entire Reynes family took refuge in the mines under Casterly Rock. The Lannisters blocked the mine exits and diverted the river into the mines thereby drowning all the Reynes.

      But I think it would still violate copyright since it is an obvious take off. Safer would be "The Westeros Companion" or such like.

      Obvious take offs don't necessarily violate copyright. Click here for Marcel DuChamp's famous derivative work that does not violate copyright. http://photos4.meetup...­

    I've uploaded my Ipad scribbled notes (not spell checked <g>) at this morning's George R. R. Martin Q&A session at ConCarolinas in Charlotte. Of especial interest are George's several references to Prof. Tolkien and his works, LOTR is is favorite book, and how his work in Song of Ice and Fire is largely based on Tolkien's method of story telling. http://files.meetup.com/1762568/GRRM%20Q%26A%20at%20ConCarolinas%20June%201%202014%20Report%20Copyright%202014%20Kenne.doc

      That gives me a much better idea of what he had in mind. Very different level from some of the less straighforward techniques Tolkien employs. JRRT is the Master, sine qua non! Too bad he had to expend so much energy on correcting class papers, etc., otherwise he might have gotten even more to completion.

      I loved GRRM's answer re Joffrey. "Why did you make Joffrey so hateable?
      He is a 13 year old boy. Have you known any?"
