Apple Shares Promo Videos for George R. R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' Enhanced iBooks Exclusives

On its YouTube channel, Apple today shared three videos promoting iBooks exclusive enhanced versions of titles from George R.R. Martin's popular "A Song of Ice and Fire" series.

Each video features Martin talking about one of the books in the series, starting with "A Game of Thrones," which is the first book. In the two minute video, which is accompanied by artwork, Martin speaks about one of the first scenes he wrote, which involved the direwolf pups owned by the Starks. It also covers the iron throne and Daenerys Targaryen.


The videos on "A Clash of Kings" and "A Storm of Swords," are shorter in length at 30 seconds and feature Martin talking about the themes that are included in each book.




The Enhanced Editions of "A Game of Thrones," "A Clash of Kings," "A Storm of Swords," "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance of Dragons" are available from the iBooks Store for $8.99 to $11.99.

Enhanced versions, exclusive to iBooks, include annotations, glossaries, family trees, interactive maps, and more.

I bought the enhanced edition of "A Game of Thrones" a couple of months ago and it's absolutely great. Maps, little popups with cool info about places, characters and objects, hyperlinked glossary. What an e-book should be. It fully utilizes the medium.

Will buy the rest too.

Yeah .. right .. look at the raven calling the kettle black.

@on topic
Interesting concept and certainly a great franchise to choose for extra content and extended glossaries. I read all the Song of Fire and Ice books on the Kindle and occasionally would have liked to jump to the map or to a glossary to look up a character. Most of that information is in the paper books as well as the ebooks already, it is just cumbersome to look up in the books and close to impossible to navigate on the Kindle.

And, George .. go finish the god§%*$ book .. .. please!
