I think the Dornish segment of Feast provided two of the best chapters you've written, not just in that book, but in the whole series. The opening to "The Captain of the Guard" -- in the Water Garden, the scent of ripe blood oranges in the air as they fall, one by one, while a sad, weary prince sits there with a letter he will not open until night -- is certainly the most beautifully poetic passage in the books as far as I'm concerned, while the close of "The Princess in the Tower" sends a shiver up my spine every time I read it.

So, suffice it to say, I'm excited by the fact that we'll have more of Dorne in time. You had hinted at it a few months ago, of course, when you mentioned the Dornish sands as a locale, but I didn't quite dare to hope.

(I reserve the right to envision a younger Salma Hayek as Arianne, instead of Apollonia, however!)
