so for the ebook-typos email address, are you also accepting internal inconsistencies?
If someone thinks they’ve found one, sure.
Believe me, I’m in no mood to be snarky about this right now. Peter is presently revising/prepping The Horse Lord for its new ebook publisher, and he’s turned up inconsistencies that made it past three different sets of editors and copyeditors over the last thirty years without anyone noticing.

nerd, what does ur url mean ??i i've been wondering for 84 years
crap, i’m like too tired to go in depth about this, but it’s basically a reference to an ancient persian god known as mithra, which was basically a sun god but also a god of justice and oaths & obligations. justice, oaths and obligations duty, yanno all of the shit that’s central to jon basically.
while not so apparent in the show since… well the show would have a bit of difficulty properly showing this shit, but jon’s chapters are actually rife with a lot of references and parallels to certain myths. the most obvious one is the corn king (a deity that dies during the winter to usher in the spring) and the greek hero perseus. but references to mithra and the mithraic mysteries are all over the god damn place in jon’s chapters as well.
but that’s not surprising at all since martin really enjoys drawing inspiration from many different sources whether it be real world history to various religions and myths. like grrm got the idea for the wall when he visited hadrian’s wall once upon a time and not so surprising is that there’s a temple to mithras right there at hadrian’s wall too.
