NOW Game of Thrones fans have nearly a year to wait for the next season, some might be thinking about picking up the George R. R. Martin books the series is based on. But will fans of the show become fans of the books? Writers at Grantland debate whether Game of Thrones is one of the few works that's actually improved onscreen, or if the books are still the best way to take on the story. (http://es.pn/11aoIj6)
Wired runs through seven characters and key moments from the show's third season and opines on what the series did better and what was cut from the books. (http://bit.ly/19vucJy)
For those who want a cheat sheet about the next season without reading the books, New York magazine's Vulture blog has a relatively spoiler-free look at what could be coming. (http://vult.re/13Yu4fM)
