Hey, there’s a new George R.R. Martin book coming out on Tuesday, 11/3. Just not the one you or anyone else wants.

To gird your loins for tonight’s fourth season premiere of Game of Thrones, Digg compiled every single on-screen death from the previous seasons and combined them into one 3-minute murder orgy. So now you can slake your near-insatiable bloodlust the next time you sit the porcelain throne.
