I've almost certainly decided on a topic for my ZULA/master's thesis - after a long time waffling about fanfic, Marlowe, fairy tales and Vikings, I've decided to give role-playing games a try. There's just enough of a body of works on them to start from, and they offer many interesting areas of research, plus I think there are some interesting things to be said about RPGs as a form of literary adaptation and transformative fiction (how to make your thesis about nerd stuff nerdier: compare it to other nerd stuff).

Also, there is a Game of Thrones cookbook! I'm not sure whether I should buy it, because I'm not a very experienced cook, but quasi-medieval cooking sounds very tempting, plus it's based on this really cool blog here:

Inn at the Crossroads

I will definitely try some of these recipes for our weekly rpg-group star trek watching/cooking together nights. The Dornish stuff sounds delicious, although I couldn't bring myself to buy a dead python (poor thing!) even if it was available.
