Never watched American Football and probably never will, I have never read Wild Cards and probably never will and when Dance with Dragons is in the shops I'll probably wait for the paperback like a true cheapskate, but I can't thank you enough for the reading pleasure I've had from A Song of Ice and Fire and the Dunk and Egg stories.

Before A Throne of Swords I had last read fantasy ten years before as a student and then Terry Pratchett and it was ten years before that as a teenager that I'd last read fantasy that was intended to be serious.

What pleasure I have had though since that great opening with the Starks and the symbolic dead direwolf: reading my way through the battle of the Blackwater while less than sober when I should have been studing for exams, the vicarious pleasure from seeing Freys hanged, the loving descriptions of feasts (even the mashed turnips), the deep sense of satisfaction at the very long game that Prince Doran is playing.

Every page has been worth the wait and even better each page has repaid rereading. It has been amazing to read something as brutal and complex as medieval history, rich and rewarding from one book to the next.

Thank you George RR Martin!
