Lovepurple: Yep that is the first season, and the website says it doesn't ship here! I hope it is available in Aus, when it comes out. I only have free to air tv, and haven't been able to view it at all yet. lol
Teeny: I do look at the appendices from time to time, but I find I still need that bit of a refresher. I think once I have read the whole series, I will go back and try and grasp the things I missed. He is very detailed with Westeros, and the people. I think this is going to be as big as Tolkien in many more years to come.
My mind boggles just thinking of the work he must do, to get these out. Let alone the other work he does. He must be on the go all the time.
