Wasn't expecting a "new" George RR Martin book to come out. Therefore, was intrigued when this appeared just as I was finishing the 5th Games of Thrones book! Expecting rants of "why doesn't he concentrate on final installment" (which I've seen for other "epic" novelists who divert temporarily!). However, it appears that these were written as 3 short novellas well before the "real" Game of Thrones.
Therefore, for fans, they're something new to get a short fix of Westeros. For newbies, it's a great intro to Westeros from 2 character perspective... especially if the huge Game of Thrones book set seems too daunting. This is a great was to "put a foot in the water"... see if you like it.
I was surprised how "fully formed" the world is in George's mind at such an early stage. The history is all there... the houses.... it's an exact world, just a 100 years earlier. Had expected to find a more "primitive" back story to the world with some major differences.
So, great self contained book which gives a good view of what to expect from the main set of books!

Great stories, very well put together with a nice flow.
I would love a continuation of the series to the point of him becoming Sir Duncan the Tall of the Kingsguard
