We're just at the beginning of the great hiatus between Game of Thrones season 2 and season 3, but thankfully, there are little bits of Westeros here and there that help us get our fix. Last month, for example, I posted about the great new essay compilation Beyond the Wall: Exploring George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. And while it was a great book, it might have left television-only fans a little alienated, since it covered events in the show's source material that haven't been adapted to screen yet. For fans of the series looking for some essays to sink their teeth into, worry not: Pearson Moore's new book, Game of Thrones Season Two Essays, is here to help.
Moore is fantastic at writing about television; he's written several books about LOST (one of them, LOST Thought, featured an essay by yours truly), and he's written a couple about Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones Season Two Essays, his latest compilation, features musings about all ten episodes of the series, as well as characters such as Sandor "The Hound" Clegane and Lady Melisandre. The essays won't ruin anything for fans who have seen the second season, making the book a fairly unique summer read for those looking to delve deeper into the world of Westeros.
Game of Thrones Season Two Essays is also stocked full of cool illustrations -- over a hundred of them, in fact. If the cover is any indication, they're all going to be visually entrancing.
Currently, Game of Thrones Season Two Essays is currently only available in a Kindle edition. You can order it over at Amazon.
Game of Thrones will begin its third season on March 31, 2012.
