Race for the Iron Throne's Steven Attewell will be sharing some of his work on Tower of the Hand, offering his historical and political insights on A Song of Ice and Fire. His previous series include Hands of the King, Hollow Crowns and Deadly Thrones, and A Laboratory of Politics. Now Steve turns his attention toward the Blackfyre Rebellions. In Part I: Origins and Causes, Steve tackles the difficult questions of why and how the Blackfyre Rebellions happened and who fought for the Blacks and who fought for the Reds.
