Five Days...

... till Kong is loosed upon the world.

Feels strange, after so many years. I know that some of you thought I would never finish. Believe me, there were dark nights of the soul where I had my doubts as well. But now the day is almost at hand, and the dragons will fly.

In fact, they are already taking wing. Bantam informs me that DANCE has just gone back for its 6th hardcover printing, and it isn't even on sale yet. The first reviews are breaking today, and so far (knock wood) they have all been great. And in the UK, Waterstone's in Glasgow has put up a brilliant window display:



Exciting times.

The display looks great! Like most of the people here I have preordered the book. Are there any links of the first reviews??

Wow, love thw eindow display, I will be seeing if the Waterstones in town does something of the kind but I will be surprised if it does. So excited about the book!

I wish HBO sold house banners, I would love one of those. I'd even make one myself, but my printer is too small!

I think I'll open a cask of my best Arbor and toast to you George whilst I finish AFFC for the fourth time and prepare myself the THE DANCE!!!!

Congrats GRRM, and see you in Denver

The Dance
Also have Tuesday off and so does the boyfriend. We've done the re-reads and the re-listens, with Roy and Lee, and will be camping in the white mountains of NH with Roy (yay!!) once again for The Dance. I'll also be getting the audio from aubible and then awaiting the hardcover. Congrats on the 6th printing George and for making it this far! I know it can't come fast enough but at the same time I would not want it any earlier than when it was truly finished to you. Thank you for sticking it with it. Oh and that display is wonderful! Is that a dragon egg I see.

I actually always had a strong, good feeling that you would indeed finish Dance, sooner or later, because of your posts here about struggling with it - which was a very good sign that at least you were working on it! :)

I've got a copy on pre order and can't wait until it hits our shores and I have it in my hot little hands. Really looking forward to going back to Westeros for a visit.

Congrats, George. I loved the book, and I look forward to seeing you in Burlington on Tuesday night.

Que venha os dragões!
Aqui no Brasil ainda vai ser lançado "A Storm of Swords". Mas mesmo assim, estou ansioso por "A Dancing with Dragons".

Royal treatment.
6th printing already?! Wow!
I'm glad the reviews are very good. Unfortunately I won't read any more. The last one I read had too much info. Not quite spoiler material but too much for my liking.

I'm really looking forward to reading it.

why is this book so expensive? i paid $8.99 a piece for the previous 4. even the kindle edition is almost double that. i've been waiting for this book for 4 years, and now i can't get it because it costs so much! and if i do somehow scrounge up the money (rolling coins) i won't be able to afford the wine! Boo!

Seems like new releases always cost a little more. Wait awhile and the price will come down.

As much as I enjoyed Game of Thrones on HBO and the book, and am enjoying A Clash of Kings I'm not ready for A Dance With Dragons but I already ordered it anyway. I'll get there eventually after all the review books are done and I've managed to get through the other three books before it. Congratulations, George. You're a great storyteller.

I'm so excited! I haven't even read it yet, and I'm already sure the wait was worth it.

I am so excited for the new book!!

I shouldn't have brought up anticipation for book 6 in a comment I posted a couple days ago. it was unnecessary; especially since I read a review (non-spoiler review, can't handle anything else) and found out there WILL be more than the other side of the coin to a feast of crows... in dance with dragons..so some of my questions will be answered..and new ones created I know
