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 indeed!
I can hardly wait for July 12th, although I'm biding my time by re-reading the previous installments at a leisurely pace, to re-acquaint myself with all the subtle little details and sub-plots that I've forgotten in the meantime.

"The Song of Ice and Fire" pretty much proves that literary quality is not a question of genre, and that fantasy novels do not have to be formulaic and superficial.
I've rarely seen anybody else weave so many strands and yarns into a single, beautifully crafted tapestry. If I manage to rival your writing skills 30 years from now, I'll consider myself extremely fortunate.
