For those of you who couldn't be there, here's my interview at Google.

The Google campus was pretty amazing. Must be a fun place to work. I especially liked the slide who those who want to get to the ground floor quickly...

I liked your answer for the least favorite scene, thanks :)

btw this is the fourth question of mine that you've answered, I'm keeping track :D

Really? There's a slide? *dies of envy*

Altho, a lot of people are upset with Google at the moment... https://plus.google.com/103112149634414554669/posts/WAu688n8JgZ

This is the first I've heard of this controversy.

I've only glanced at the link you provided, so I can't say I have grasped all the particulars here... however, if my initial impression is correct, and the issue is that Google wants users to use their real names... well, I'm with Google.

I am no fan of internet anonymity, which seems to me to encourage the worst kinds of trolling. People will say all sorts of things when hiding behind a pseudonym that they would never say if they had to sign their own names to their remarks. It brings out the worst in human nature.

I loved your answer for your least favorite scene. As difficult as it was to read, I can imagine how difficult it was to write. Personally, I had to stop reading for a day or two after the Red Wedding, but I felt a small amount of redemption for it in Joffrey's wedding...but very small...

There were a few spoilers though. I'm currently in the first half of A Storm of Swords and there are a few spoilers from the second half.

I said that I'll only watch ten minutes today. And here I am an hour later, worried about you killing of the major characters and at the same time very charmed by well... You.
And on a completely superficial note: I LOVE that happy shirt you're wearing here! :D

I was there!
I was lucky enough to be in the second row! It was great to see you at Google! Too bad you had to leave immediately...

Good interview!
I really liked your contention near the beginning that sci-fi and fantasy are 2 parts of the same thing...that is something that I believe, especially since I really love both equally.

Now back to finishing off Dance with Dragons...which I would have finished sooner but my first copy had pages 497-528 repeat instead of giving me 689-720 and I was too sick until yesterday to go and get a new clean copy. I did email bantam but have yet to get any reply and I just couldn't wait I had to read that Dany chapter.

This one was great! I remember I saw the second half live in you-tube :)
Cheers from Bulgaria, you have lots of crazy fans here!

Yay! Hour long interview!
And I like the interviewer and his LOTR quips (I'm a Kiwi myself)

Great interview.

As an adult reader, I can say that you hit the bullseye about the deficiency in the LOTR books. They were fascinating when I was a teenager though.

Not so much of an interview as a QnA. Your answers were as per usual fantastic.

Is there an interviewer with whom you'd like to have a discussion? Sort of a "bucket list" item?
