He's STILL a king in his world...

kong1
... and he's taught me fear.

I've tied the last kraken up in knots, only to have another swarm up from the depths.

Aiieeee.



As of this morning, A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is thirty (manuscript) pages longer than A STORM OF SWORDS. And. Not. Done. Yet.

Dragons, krakens, monkeys, I hates them all.

But I press on. Kong, Kong, I will beat you yet! Where's my bloody biplane???

You are the Master. You will find the path, and it will be even better & sweeter that you first conceived.

The walk to the Dancefloor
Don't be frustrated, be glad. The more the merrier, say I. I'm prepared to wait until 3yrs after my death for Dance (but not a day longer).

I only say that half-facetiously. I will happily wait for greatness. So say we all!

I want to thank you Mr. Martin for giving your readers something that you worked your butt off for. Many other writers release books that seem rushed and are poorly constructed, but you are taking your time to create something you deem as worthy of release... and for that I said bravo sir!

Dearest mr Martin, I wish you courage and the fastest biplane ever. As almost anyone here I reread all your other books and hope, cross my heart and hope again that you'll somehow write a Dance with Dragons - and then, after som good rest, you'll write two more and finish the Song.

As someone who's very much stuck in a second draft, you have my deepest sympathies, good sir. Fight on!

Tyrants will fall, Egypt tells us so. Never forget, Mr. Martin, that you've got The People cheering for you :-)

Mm, it may not be too much longer than A Storm of Swords, but I am more than happy to tackle it in July.

Well then, it's actually good that the book is going to be longer than ASoS. Waiting this long should end in a very, ah, long book ;-). A chapter more is just a chapter more, go on!

Good luck and thank you! :)

This is why I'm not getting my hopes up for July. Not yet anyway.

Looking forward to ADWD, just getting into AFFC in my annual re-read and I have to say that this is shaping up to be the best year since I first discovered ASOIF :D Hoping that you get all those pesky loose ends tied up, that you don't abandon Sandor and Littlefinger gets what he deserves in the end.

I have already sent a crate of knockout gas to skull island by next day air. Feel free to use it in an emergency!

Old kong?
To be clear - are we fighting the old kong? Or the modern cgi beast?

The cgi monkey would surely be easier to subdue, so I assume we're fighting original kong.

Krakens? Are we sure those wacky Greyjoys aren't hydras?
