Today marks the publication of McFarland Books' Vying for the Iron Throne (UK, USA), a new collection of essays about A Song of Ice and Fire and its TV incarnation, Game of Thrones.
As with 2012's Beyond the Wall (UK, USA), this is a collection that I contributed to. In this case I was honoured to provide the epilogue, discussing Game of Thrones' transformative position in the modern TV landscape.
As well as my incoherent ramblings, there are 21 other essays on topics ranging from religion, death, performance and war. Well worth a look.
