Another reason, I love the series so much, I want to do it justice and bring something interesting to the loud conversation already taking place about it, but worry that I will disappoint. And the other reason I avoided it was that my dear friend and former Tubular colleague, Andrew Dansby, has a history with the book series, and I was hoping against hope that he would take up his blogging duties once more. Alas, like Sansa, I’m beginning to realize that there is no white knight out there to save me, and I’m just going to have to take care of myself.
