A Storm of Swords
The men of the Night's Watch make their stand at the Fist of the First Men, but they are attacked by wights. They retreat to Craster's Keep, but many are wounded. Among them is Byam, who has a wound at the shoulder.
The men are hungry and accuse Craster of keeping food from them. Craster reaches for his dagger but is killed by Dirk. Dying, Craster falls on Byam. It is not known what happens to Byam during the ensuing mutiny at Craster's Keep, but afterwards Samwell Tarly notices that Byam does not moan anymore.
