Merry Xmas

Here's hoping all my fans and readers had a terrific Xmas.

Santa was very, very good to me. Books, turtles, jewelry, a coffeemaker (I mainline the stuff), monster movies, a tiny miniature of myself, a Richard Powers original, a dragon for my garden... what more can a boy want? (Aside from his lost youth, and a year's worth of 50 hour days to get more done).

"Winter is Coming"
The expression "Winter is Coming" is being used by other writers, I think to honor you (GRRM). I watched the Dr Who Christmas Special and the expression "Winter is Coming" was used twice that I caught. And it had a similar meaning...a mystical cold terror was about to be unleashed onto the world and destroy humankind.

Stephan Moffat is the writer and he is really brilliant, being the main writer for the TV series Dr Who and for Sherlock. It would be wonderful if he could write an episode of the Game of Thrones HBO series.

Have a great year - 2013.

Re: "Winter is Coming"
In my own series, I may 'reference' that phrase - I'm giving GRRma cameo of sorts (a small but important character who will have about half a page total), bearing his likliness and the sigil of a turtle..or possibly owning a turtle.

I'll reference by saying "Fall is Leaving". It will only be uttered the ONCE in the entire series. It will fit, and not stuck out as a sore thumb. Basically, Ice and fire readers would catch the reference upon reading.
