Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine (see description). Larry Ronstant cover Art (illustrator). Later Printing of the first Edition. ------------hardcover, about 6.25w x 9.5h inches, a Near Fine example, small stain on fore edge of text block, in a Near Fine dustjacket with a bit of crinkling and a very small nick at upper spine tip, map of North and South Westeros endpapers, ---"It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. --- With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out. ---But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces -some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead. ---It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes --- and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests -but only a few are the survivors. "---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo /// NOT SIGNED///. Not Signed.

About this Item: GRIN Verlag, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Essay aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Buchwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg (Buchwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Buch steht nicht nur in standiger Konkurrenz zu neuen Erzahlmedien, wie beispielsweise Horbuch und -spiel, sondern vor allem Film, Fernsehen oder Computerspiel. Im Zuge dessen hat zwar dessen allgemeine Reputation als bildendes Medium uber die Jahrzehnte deutlich zugenommen, doch zugleich muss es sich gegen seine Konkurrenten umso mehr behaupten, deren Trumpf vor allem die audiovisuelle Darstellung erzahlerischer Stoffe ist. Der Diskurs uber die Aufrechterhaltung der etablierten Stellung des Buchs in der Medienlandschaft, im Vergleich zum Fernsehen, hat sich bereits im 20. Jahrhundert groer Beliebtheit erfreut. Jetzt, Anfang des 21. Jahrhunderts, steht es einer stetig wachsenden Beliebtheit von Fernsehserien gegenuber, die sich bei ihrer Produktion vermehrt popularen Buchreihen bedienen - siehe z. B. Sherlock Holmes und dessen moderne Adaption Sherlock. Andererseits wiederum kann das Buch durchaus von verfilmten Literaturvorlagen profitieren, wodurch es nicht unbedingt sein muss, dass es von visuell aufbereiteten Inhalten vom Markt verdrangt wird. Hieraus ergibt sich schlielich die Frage, ob sich filmische Adaptionen literarischer Stoffe eher komplementar oder substitutiv auf den Buchmarkt auswirken. Der Beantwortung dieser Frage wird dadurch nachgegangen, indem wissenschaftliche Literatur aus den Bereichen Buch-, Literatur- und insbesondere Medienwissenschaft herangezogen wurde - so z. B. Intermedialitat (Rajewsky). Die Adaption besitzt auch aktuell noch den verbreiteten Ruf eines Mangelexemplars, da dies von den kulturellen Eliten in der Vergangenheit so mehrmals propagiert wurde. Anders als fruher, beschaftigt sich die Forschung bezuglich Literaturadaptionen momentan gleichwohl weniger damit, ob der Film exakt der literarischen Vorlage entspricht, Seller Inventory # APC9783668015531

About this Item: John Wiley Sons Inc, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. Auflage. Language: English . Brand New Book. Since it first aired in 2011, Game of Thrones galloped up the ratings to become the most watched show in HBO s history. It is no secret that creator George R.R. Martin was inspired by late 15th century Europe when writing A Song of Ice and Fire, the sprawling saga on which the show is based. Aside from the fantastical elements, Game of Thrones really does mirror historic events and bloody battles of medieval times but how closely?Game of Thrones versus History: Written in Blood is a collection of thought-provoking essays by medieval historians who explore how the enormously popular HBO series and fantasy literature of George R. R. Martin are both informed by and differ significantly from real historical figures, events, beliefs, and practices of the medieval world. From a variety of perspectives, the authors delve into Martin s plots, characterizations, and settings, offering insights into whether his creations are historical possibilities or pure flights of fantasy. Topics include the Wars of the Roses, barbarian colonizers, sieges and the nature of medieval warfare, women and agency, slavery, celibate societies in Westeros, myths and legends of medieval Europe, and many more. While life was certainly not a game during the Middle Ages, Game of Thrones versus History: Written in Blood reveals how a surprising number of otherworldly elements of George R. R. Martin s fantasy are rooted deeply in the all-too-real world of medieval Europe. Find suggested readings, recommended links, and more from editor Brian Pavlac at .

Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine (see description). Larry Rostant Cover Art (illustrator). First Edition. ------------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, complete number line---"In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance -beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. ---Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way to Daenerys. But his newest allies in this quest are not the rag-tag band they seem, and at their heart lies one who could undo Daenerys’s claim to Westeros forever. ---Meanwhile, to the north lies the mammoth Wall of ice and stone—a structure only as strong as those guarding it. There, Jon Snow, 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, will face his greatest challenge. For he has powerful foes not only within the Watch but also beyond, in the land of the creatures of ice. ---From all corners, bitter conflicts reignite, intimate betrayals are perpetrated, and a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, will face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Some will fail, others will grow in the strength of darkness. But in a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics will lead inevitably to the greatest dance of all.
