The Game of Food

Spain
My fans never cease to amaze me. Some of you are crazy. Some of you are wonderful. Most of you are crazily wonderful.

Like the two women in Boston who have started up a food blog they are calling the Inn at the Crossroads. Their mission appears to be to cook up both medieval and modern versions of all the dishes mentioned in A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.



They're already off to a great start. You can read about their adventures and get all their recipes at the Inn: http://innatthecrossroads.wordpress.com/



I have cautioned them to skip the seagull when they get to it. The rat-on-a-stick is probably worth a pass as well, and I'd be wary about the bowls o' brown served in Flea Bottom. You never know what sorts of things go in them.



Anyway, do visit their blog and give them some encouragement. They have a lot of cooking to do. Why, Joffrey's wedding feast alone featured seventy-seven courses.

Oh, and I love their motto: In the Game of Food, you win, or you wash the dishes...

Never Stop Writing!
Hey. I just wanted to log in a sec to tell you to NEVER die or stop writing. In fact, I won't even let you die! Nope. Won't happen, Sir! You must keep writing for eternity :-).

For real though, you are amazing. After I finished Scott Bakker's 'The Judging Eye,' I began a search for an equally awesome book. I had heard Bakker talk about you, so I decided to give A Game of Thrones a try.

At first, I was like, "I don't know man." But as I started reading it, I fell in love! It's been just a few months, but I'm already on A Feast For Crows. And despite all the negative reviews, I'm loving it!

I'm very glad of one thing: you aren't making Cersei likeable! I was afraid you'd make me like her the way I now like Jaime. He's a pretty decent guy, but Cersei is pure evil. I HATE her! Oooh.. I hate, I hate, I hate her! Plus, she reminds me of a couple of my exes, LOL.

Anyway. You are such an amazing writer. I too am a writer (satire, freelance work, etc.), but I could never produce the type of literary materials you've managed to weave together. Friggen brilliant!

Anyway. I'll stop sucking up now, lol. Take care and please keep writing!
