VoK 75: The Hedge Knight (by George R. R. Martin)


The Vassals raise their pavilions at Ashford Meadow to discuss The Hedge Knight, the first story in George R. R. Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg series of novellas. Topics include the role of smallfolk in Westeros and the main story, knights and knighthood, how coinage and the economy of Westeros functions, the age old question of who has a right and claim to rule, and why fahrenheit is better than celsius. Zach (Alias), Bina (Bina007), Vikram (FortyTwo), Amanda (MiddleCyclone), Michael (Mordion), Leigh (LordManderblee) and Nadia (Nadia) also consider various theories that the story has spawned and how they relate to the A Song of Ice and Fire world at large.

  1. Hey guys, at the Sydney Opera house late last year I asked George about further novellas, he replied that he plans to write many more including up to, and including Summerhall. So plenty to come!

  2. Haha, I was fortunate enough to see the big man himself twice in Sydney and I got to ask the first question at the Opera house (I think I trammeled some people to get in first lol). I also was lucky enough to get him to sign my handmade baratheon helmet!!!
