Yes they are, but there's some gorgeous artwork to be found as well.

Oooh, I just had to share this stepback. Just picked up Roseanne Bitner's Wildest Dreams on the $1.99 kindle deals and found this at Goodreads:

That's lovely, you don't get artwork in (regular) novels like that nowadays.

That's Tom Hall, he's one of the best IMHO. Library sales are such fun for finding these treasures, but I'm glad there are places now to catalog these so they don't get lost forever.

I'm probably going to be in Westeros for a while. It's kinda hard to leave.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
