Yakking It Up

For any of you who are not yet tired of hearing me talk, there's a new interview up on a blog called Feather Factor:

I gather it's a fashion blog. I'm sure a fashionable guy, donchaknow.

Thank you...
for taking the time to do this, it was very enjoyable for me and I will no longer read til the end of a book just so I won't feel bad for putting it on my bookshelf. Thank you again and I do know, you're a fashionable guy!

Thanks for sharing! I really enjoy reading your posts - here - and the info your links. The Valentine's Day cards were a big hit, btw. Gave us all a laugh. I also enjoyed the preview for season 2 of Game of Thrones on HBO, which you posted. Still waiting for the DVDs (season 1), which I ordered, so I appreciate your updates (Iceland!!). Keep it up!

Here's what I like most about your writing: you can always return! Even after several years. I have re-read all of your 'Ice and Fire' stories that I own, although I am still missing a few of the other books and stories you published. I have some. I forget. I have too may books and no place to put them. It's annoying.

I started a LJ book group in 2005 about "fantasy", and everyone agreed that I should read your books. That was the best advise I ever got.

What's surprised me most recently is that you seem to have a lot of fans in Russia - I encountered them via the SimHospital game here on LJ - but they sure knew what "Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!" was about. I am impressed.

You rock ;)

HBO - The Wire
The one thing I've allways wondered: When you talk about HBO and the great dramas they have been doing in the past ten years, you never even (as far as I know) mention "The Wire".

I wonder why, I mean, it is simply the best TV show there is and especially the characters are incredibly strong. Also the slowness and complexity of the story-telling reminds me of a certain great fantasy author.

Re: HBO - The Wire
Oh, I loved THE WIRE too. You can't think of everything.

I'm surprised you didn't list The Wire as among your favourite shows
Firstly, I enjoyed that interview. You got asked different questions from the ones you usually get.

Secondly: I'm surprised you didn't list The Wire as among your favourite shows. The Wire is impeccably written, an absolute triumph of screenwriting. It also shares a lot of similarities to A Song of Ice and Fire, with a lot of the same tropes shared. Both series also managed to break my heart. I recommend it to everyone, and I think you'd like it a lot, especially once you get over a slightly high accessibility curve. Some writers you like, such as Dennis Lehane, have worked on it. It's terrific. :)

If you liked the idea of Hunger Games...
I saw you read Hunger Games, you should read Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. Same basic idea, but not written for fourteen year olds. Different viewpoints so you get to know the all the other characters as they're fighting each other and being killed off.

No, we never grow tired hearing from you!

Have you ever considered doing your own audio narration? I know he writes nonfiction, but Jon Krakauer narrates all of his works for audiotapes.

I prefer to leave that to actors.

That Morgan Aero SuperSports is sex on four wheels. Post some pictures if you end up getting it.
