Someday, someone will interview you
And it'll be about old TV shows ("Twin Peaks: genius, or insane?"), Jack Vance, and why the pizza belt is the only place to get pizza. Personally I'd throw in a few questions about Haviland Tuf and why you think Pat Rothfuss's books are so good, too.

You know, basically have fun.

People seem to have figured this out.
Roger Ashton-Griffiths?

Spoilers?
Are there any spoilers in this interview? I'm going through your older books one by one I've only just done "Dying of the Light" ("Windhaven" tonight). Should I be warned about "Fevre Dream" or "Armageddon Rag" spoilers, or "Song for Lya", etc?

You know, its kinda hard to imagine just how high the quality of the story and roleplaying was in a group of consisting solely of writers. Do you still play Superworld when you have the time? Or any other roleplaying game for that matter?

Do you count Wild Cards?
Parris once bitched about an entire Thanksgiving dinner drying out in the kitchen while the party round the table plotted the next six volumes . . .

Supremely interesting
I loved hearing about all the non-GOT/ASoIaF stuff. Gotta love that Chris really knows his stuff... except that one moment when you schooled him (though, he zigged out of that perfectly).

Refreshing
Great interview. I really like Chris Hardwick and I'm glad he asked questions that were different than the usual...."Are you writing quickly?" "Who is Jon Snow's mother" blah blah blah. Very refreshing and thanks George for all that you have done.

interesting comment...
At the 1:03:00 mark, George kind says that he's told Dan and Dave ideas he had for the books that he'd discarded which reminds me of something interesting i read in the original AFFC synopsis on Amazon back in 2002. Yara/Asha going after Theon in the TV series may have been one of these?:

AFFC 2002:

"The action in Book Four of A Song of Ice and Fire begins the day after the end of A STORM OF SWORDS. While the remaining northern lords war endlessly with each other and the ironmen of the isles attack the Dreadfort, Sansa becomes a skilled player in the game of thrones with Littlefinger as her mentor, Arya a skilled assassin, and Bran a magician and shapeshifter of great power. All seek to gain revenge for the death of their parents and Robb Stark, whose head was cut off and replaced with the head of his direwolf.

Valar morghulis. All men must die, and wolves, too. Danerys trains her growing dragons and learns from Barristan the secrets of her father, her brother Rhaegar, and other matters that will culminate at Starfell. And Jon Snow is the nine-hundredth-and-ninety-eighth lord commander of the Night's Watch. The Wall is his. The night is dark, and he has King Stannis to face. The cold wind is rising, and still there are inhuman powers gathering in the north."

***ironmen of the isles attack the Dreadfort***

Re: interesting comment...
I have nothing to do with those plot synopses on Amazon and like places. Have no idea who makes this stuff up, or what they base it on.

Don't want to waste any more of your precious time, so just a quick question:

Which is your fav chess set of all time ?

Re: interesting comment...
Like all tournament players, I prefer the classic Staunton design.

Ornamental chess sets are cool as objects d'art, but suck for actually playing games.
