Hey Veronica and Tom,
First, let me say I’m liking the greater frequency of S&L. Hope to see more.
Add me to the tally of people Veronica has introduced to Temeraire. I recently finished Victory of Eagles; it’s an amazing series and I look forward to more.
Game of Thrones on HBO. Here’s the thing about the Ice and Fire books. They are incredible books, however I had to stop reading after the 3rd one because it literally depressed me. If the HBO series is near as good, I doubt I’ll be able to watch it, which is too bad.
Also, I vote for a video version of S&L on TWiT.tv
Anyway, cheers and thanks for the great book-lovers podcast.
