A Blast from the Past

I was startled looking at my website today when I saw the hit counter, which tells me the site has had more than 23 million hits since December of 2000.

Of course, I have to put that in perspective. It's really just the same forty-two people coming back again and again to see if DANCE is done yet, isn't it?

(I suspect the Not A Blog actually gets MORE visitors than my main site. A mention here -- of a forthcoming appearance, a book sale, a news item -- seems to generate a lot more response than anything on my Appearances page, my Signed Books page, or my News page).

No point to any of this, just... hey, 23 million hits, that's kinda cool...

No telling how many of you have actually been around since 2000, and how many found my site and/or the Not A Blog just last week. Some of you newcomers, though, might enjoy giving a listen to the series of podcasts I recorded back in 2005, to promote A FEAST FOR CROWS. (I assume you old timers have heard them all already). They're all at

I imagine I will be doing more of these when DANCE WITH DRAGONS comes out. I'll need to think up some more topics. (Maybe "Deadlines, and Why They Should Never Be Missed" would be a good one). Meanwhile, these may entertain and enlighten those of you who haven't heard 'em.

And try not to laugh TOO hard at the part where I say I hope to finish DANCE by the end of the year. I really meant it, honest.

I created this account strictly to say one thing.

I am in the midst of reading the series through for the nth time, and I felt that I needed to add my voice.

This is quite possibly the best fantasy series I have ever read. Period. I love everything about the way it is written, the characters, the scenery, the thrilling battles, and the emotional confessions that are strewn throughout. I would say that I cannot wait until the DANCE arrives, but I do not want to add to the pressure. Let me say that I look forward with great excitement to the arrival of the DANCE, and the following novels. Even if they each take another 5 years.

I just wanted to give you my personal thanks for creating such a wonderful world, and allowing me to share in it.
