The tastes of the voting audience for the Hugos (comprised of the attendees of the ...

  Resolved Question: Khaleesi & Kalessin
Do you believe that Khaleesi from the Game of Thrones is a copy of Kalessin from the Earthsea novels..? (as a name and a character related with Dragons) I came to think that G.R.R. Martin copied some things from LeGuin's Earthsea, for example, Tehanu (half burned face) similar with Baratheon's daughter.. If you know any further information about the name Kalessin (or Khaleesi) as myth name or anything like that, please let me know! Kalessin first mentioned in "The Farthest Shore - 1972" -- Khaleesi first mentioned in "Game Of Thrones - 1991" !notice: I haven't read Martin's novels, only watched the series (in case I miss something)
