The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones
George R.R. Martin is doing everything he can to delay the sixth (and penultimate) book in the A Song of Ice & Fire series. Released October 28, the next book will focus on the events BEFORE the series’ maiden book, A Game of Thrones. It’s not quite The Winds of Winter, but this prologue may give voracious readers insight into Lyanna’s last words — “Promise me, Ned” — and the true origins of John Snow (amongst copious other secrets). $20+

Google Nexus Player
Having already taken over computers, Google is looking to the next frontier: television. For $99, the small device slots in easily with your TV’s other accouterments. The internet titan is collaborating with Asus to allow viewers to stream music, shows, movies and Android games on your big screen. The affordable device has 8GB of internal storage, streams over 802.11ac wi-fi and provides further incentive to stay in on Friday night. $99+ ()

Poler X AirBlaster Ninja Suit
Admittedly, its name is deceiving. The Ninja Suit is, in fact, a top-of-the-line long underwear one-piece. Made of odor resistant and four-way stretch Merino Wool, the suit features a 7-panel hood, thumb loops, and chest, waist and fly zippers (so going to the bathroom isn’t a problem). $190

House Velo Collection
The new Velo collection from House is an attractive upgrade to the old, rusty road bike you’ve got chained outside. You can build your race bike from the ground up, choosing among different colored frames (made of TrueTemper OX Platinum double-butted steel tubing) and brakes. With a checkered motif running through all the components (even the Tanner Goods accessory bag), the line is as aesthetically pleasing as they come. houseind.com

Curator App
This beautiful new productivity tool for the iPad helps creatives gather and organize everyday inspiration into attractive presentations. Your ideas matter, but appearance is everything. Try it while it’s still free — but even if it wasn’t, the app would still be worth it. Free
