Although A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS — hereafter to be abrivved (yes my own word!) to "AKOTSK" — is being marketed as a GAME OF THRONES book, to somewhat molify the insatiable (of which I am one!) throngs until the final books are written/published—The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight — three tales that make up this volume—are nothing like the dark, treacherous,vicious and licentious story we have all guiltily come to love! Set in Westeross and a century before what we now know as "GOT," "AKOTSK" is much lighter, gentler, and humorous than it's severe heir; think more Mark Twain and Alexandre Dumas. This not to say that these tales are in any way frivilous or less severly or cleverly worked out; they are simply lighter in tone. Almost as if the author himself needed a mental release from the incessant darkness and treachery present in his major work. Although I do not know the author, I have met him and observed him on more than a few occasions, and these tales to me seem closer to his soul. They are escape literature and let me stress "literature," at its finest . . . and let us not forget the Gary Gianni illustrations — 160 of them — which give the book its heart that G.R.R.M., breathed life into. The book is SIGNED by the artist who has remarqued it with a small dragon skull. Please see my own "FOTS NEWS!"
