Back From LA

Spain
Just back from a week in LA.

I did Conan (the O'Brien, not the Cimmerian) and the Today Show, and taped a segment for a BBC special about Machiavelli... along with the usual dozen or so meeetings.

Also, while in town, swung by the Bookstar in Studio City and signed all their stock of my books, which was considerable. So if you're an Angeleno or just visiting LA, and want to snag an autographed copy of one of my novels, get yourself to Studio City while the supply lasts.

And now I'm back in the land of wolves and savage dust storms, digging out from under.

Asha and the IronBorn
Hi George,

Since you seem to be getting a myriad of questions I thought I would post one that's been nagging at me.
While I have heard the IronBorn described as "Viking-Like" They've always reminded me of the Celtic-Irish (Who were, of course influenced by the Vikings)with the raiding of the Mainland, use of elections for rulers at times, resistance to outside rule.

Even more so with the show's depictions as the clothing is reminiscent of Irish Brats. The shield looks very similar to Irish BatterSea Shields and even has the Kraken displayed with interlacing tentacles.

My question is (and I apologize for it being so long-winded)was if you were at all influenced by the Irish Pirate Grace O'Malley in the formation of Asha Greyjoy?
