Five Days...

... till Kong is loosed upon the world.

Feels strange, after so many years. I know that some of you thought I would never finish. Believe me, there were dark nights of the soul where I had my doubts as well. But now the day is almost at hand, and the dragons will fly.

In fact, they are already taking wing. Bantam informs me that DANCE has just gone back for its 6th hardcover printing, and it isn't even on sale yet. The first reviews are breaking today, and so far (knock wood) they have all been great. And in the UK, Waterstone's in Glasgow has put up a brilliant window display:



Exciting times.

Excellent! I finished FEAST roughly around the time DANCE had its first official delay announcement. I've kept an eye on this blog pretty much constantly throughout the entire waiting period. I was telling everyone I knew to read these books before any of the HBO development began. I have never looked forward to a book release as much as this one. I'm also going to chalk up my burgeoning interest in literature of all sorts to George, in part, as well as some inspiration to write. Can't wait to get started on DANCE, can't wait to start compulsively checking for updates on WINDS (no hurry, George). Needless to say, I think these deserve all the attention they're getting. Even if it takes a well-crafted and entertaining HBO show to finally get people's attention, I think it's great when people can be exposed to great writing quality as well as thrilling narratives, rather than mere entertainment. Congratulations, George. Eagerly awaiting Tuesday.
