We're massive fans of Game of Thrones here on CVG and we know you are too, so don't forget there's still a chance to win the Game of Thrones Season 2 box set in our great competition if you hurry!
But even we have to bow before the epic nerd knowledge of our friends and colleagues over at SFX who - to coincide with the launch of Season 3 of Game of Thrones on Sky Atlantic on April 1 - have produced a comprehensive bookazine for GOT fans which hits shops today . For further info and to find out how to get your copy click here.
Inside you'll find not one but two exclusive interviews with author George RR Martin, who talks about his narrowing involvement with the TV series, how he sees the books as his 'babies' and also issues this stark warning to Game of Thrones readers:
"Regarding the forthcoming books, Its my intention to cut down the number [of characters], so be afraid, be very afraid - your favourite may not survive the next book!"
Also included in the splendid bookazine are a comprehensive season 3 preview, where the SFX crew have gone on location and behind the scenes with a set visit to Ireland.
There's exclusive cast interviews with Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Rory "The Hound" McCann, Finn Jones, Dan Portman and Josef Altin as well as an exclusive with screen legend Sean Bean about his thoughts on leaving the hit show.
Further goodies include talks with the visual effects folk who build all the amazing green screen work, as well as music composer Ramin Djawadi and an in-depth look at some of the toys, badges, action figures and collectible merchandise that seriously hardcore GOT fans will want to own..
The SFX Game of Thrones bookazine is on sale today available from all good newsagents or order direct via the My Favourite Magazines web site.
