Roy Sets a Record

Congratulations to my friend Roy Dotrice, who has been officially awarded a world's record for his audibook performance of A GAME OF THRONES.

They sent him a certificate and everything:



(I especially like the stain on the certificate, obviously meant to suggest the ring left by a mug of Guinness Stout).

Of course, I am not sure how long this particular record will stand. In fact, I think Roy may well have broken it already with his recordings for A CLASH OF KINGS and (especially) A STORM OF SWORDS. But I will leave the Guinness people to sort that out.

And, yes, yes, we are doing all we can to make sure it is Roy Dotrice who will record the audiobook for A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. He was my choice to begin with, and remains so. So you can all stop sending me emails and messages. I'm with you.
