Book Description


Game of Thrones is based off of George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire book series – a saga that is so sprawling, that is so filled with multi-dimensional characters and unforeseen plot twists, it takes a lot more than just one companion book to sort everything out. Hell, it takes a lot more than one companion book series to sort everything out.

That’s why we’re introducing another line of It Is Known guides.

It Is Known: Season 3 Deconstructed, like the Analysis of Thrones releases before it, is a complete compilation of columns originally published on 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.

As if all this weren’t enough, Deconstructed features a slew of Blue Buddha Press exclusives, including a never-before-published short story by Mimi Hoshut, co-host of A Podcast of Ice and Fire, as well as the first part of an original, multi-volume essay by Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows’s editor, Marc N. Kleinhenz, taking a look at DC’s stumbling efforts to mimic the Marvel Cinematic Universe and revealing just why Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy is overrated and misguided, particularly as a multi-film bible.

Season 3 Deconstructed more than complements the other It Is Known ebooks, filling in the holes to create a seamless package that is unrivaled in its comprehensiveness and insightfulness.

I like Stefan's reviews of the episodes quite a bit. However, the rest of the essays in the book pale in comparison.
