    One thought on “Tower of the Hand: A Hymn for Spring”

    1. Today I recorded a podcast with four friends discussing five essays from this book, which is an essay collection of many VIPs from the A Song of Ice and Fire fandom - all are Towerofthehand writers.Lucky we picked the ones that are more interesting than others - except for The Curse of Harrenhal essay by Aziz and Ashaya of History of Westeros, which was one of my top three faves here. I first wanted to discuss that but there's already a podcast episode from HoW on that soah maybe next time.Anywa [...]

    2. I most enjoyed Amin Javadi's "Songs and Singers of Ice and Fire", Aziz and Ashaya's "The Curse of Harren the Black" and John Jasmin's "Unconditional Victory". If you're and Ice and Fire fan, I think you'll enjoy this collection of essays on Martin's series.

    3. I enjoyed this a lot. Some of it was hit and miss but I still enjoyed theorizing along with the authors. It did make me miss the interplay of live commenting that can make these types of things truly awesome. Still really well put together arguments and some cool insights about the series.

    4. I preferred the early Tower of the Hand essay collection, but this was still interesting. My favourites included the exploration of the Curse of Harrenhal and a study of how music is used in the series.

    5. uneven quality, and a whole lot of wtf, but the essays on Stannis Baratheon and on Petyr Baelish's economics saved it.
