Up on the Watchers on the Wall site, I have a post talking about Ser Jorah Mormont.

I’ll be talking about Littlefinger, the scheming mastermind, but also about Catelyn Stark, not only as the reason for him kicking off his ambitious plans, but also for the end of them. Feel free to check it out.

Hey, I have a new feature article on Watchers on the Wall, talking about Beyond the Wall, the most recent episode of Game of Thrones.

No, I’m not currently being paid by the Cersei Lannister administration to build a case against the Mother of Dragons.
