From Stefan Sasse, contributor at Tower of the Hand and one half of the Boiled Leather Audio Hour, comes a new eBook that examines season 3 of Game of Thrones in detail entitled “It Is Known: Season 3 Deconstructed”.
It Is Known: Season 3 Deconstructed, like the Analysis of Thrones releases before it, is a complete compilation of columns originally published on CoronaComingAttractions.com. Written by Stefan Sasse, easily one of the most accomplished authors on the Game of Thrones scene today, Deconstructed takes a step-by-step approach to the episodes, tracking each storyline as it develops – and even deviates from the source material – in minute detail across the entire season (rather than honing in on just a handful of [production] points, as An Analysis of Thrones is wont to do).
These aren’t simple recaps, however. Rather, throughout his in-depth analysis, Sasse makes a pervasive and, at times, rather controversial argument for how the HBO series actually improves upon Martin’s novels, even writing authoritative defenses of such contested characters as Ros the whore and Littlefinger the mockingbird. Readers will not only walk away with an entirely new appreciation of the show, they’ll be armed with tons of ammo to use against the book purists that so frequently tend to gang up on “Unsullied” viewers.
And for the novel readers, Sasse brings to bear brand-new, exclusive essays, further investigating the world of Westeros as realized on-screen and featuring a detailed breakdown of Jon Snow’s parallel storyarcs in both mediums.
Bonus features include an original short story by Mimi Hoshut of The Podcast of Ice and Fire and an essay by Marc Kleinhenz on the DC Cinematic Universe and why the Dark Knight trilogy is mediocre at best (Ed. note: WHAT?!).
