Watch the Skies!

A reader named Christian Johannesen has pointed out that in my announcement of the publication date of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, I wrote: "Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12."

Christian goes on to say:

"March 11, 2011: Big Tsunami - Ohh No! I hope release date hasn't gotten pushed back again!!!!!!!......

"March 11, 2011 NFL CBA talks break down. Seems like a general strike in the NFL is eminent.

"March 19, 2011 On top of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan the US along with 20 other countries attack Libyan forces loyal to Gadhafi. World War?

Please remove the asteroid strikes from your update before you become quadrupley prophetic. I'm too young to die."

To which I can only reply:

(1) I am writing as fast as I can. Finished a Meereen chapter yesterday, hope to finish another one today, and

(2) WATCH THE SKIES!
