A new blogging project: The Atlas of Ice and Fire

Because running this site isn't work enough, I have started a new blog: The Atlas of Ice and Fire.

This new blog will concern itself with fantasy geography, mapping and other issues related to maps. As the title implies, it will deal primarily with maps related to A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones, but it will also deal with maps related to other fantasy novels and other topics related to ASoIaF and GoT.

Of course, blogging on general SFF topics will continue here on The Wertzone and topics of interest to both sets of readers will be cross-posted on both sites.

I'm glad to hear about this! I love maps and fantasy geography!

I remember once way back you said there was a good discussion over at a fantasy maps forum site about the problems with Randland. You said it should look like the American Plains.

Uh…isn’t there already a book on this. “The Lands of Ice and Fire (A Game of Thrones): Maps from King's Landing to Across the Narrow Sea [George R. R. Martin]”

THE LANDS OF ICE AND FIRE is a collection of poster maps. There isn't any text or commentary accompanying it, and it leaves a lot of stuff unmapped (like the castles and most of the cities apart from King's Landing and Braavos). I know a lot of people are keen on an official, proper Atlas (like the late Karen Wynn Fonstad's excellent series of atlases on worlds like Pern and Middle-earth), but it doesn't look likely we'll ever get one, so this is the next best thing, or so I plan.
