Back from Montana

Back home again from Missoula, Montana, where I spent the weekend as GOH at Miscon 26.

'twas my first trip to Montana, and I can't say I really saw much of it, but Missoula was a pleasant little city, and the con itself was great. They drew 1300 people, I'm told, a record for Miscon, and I think all of them had a great time. I know I did. Miscon fen party like we did in the old days, and the hotel -- Ruby's, a small indy with local ownership -- was really great. None of the nonsense with noise complaints and shutting down parties and elevators that has plagued so many cons of late. In fact, some of the hotel management partied with us.

So a tip of the hat to Justin, Cthulhu Bob, Clay, and the rest of the Miscon Miscreants, and to Tim, Dustan, and Vicky from Ruby's. You were great.

Ice and Fire Update
Welcome home George! I hope you've had time to revel in the commendations for Sundays episode!

In the years leading up to the release of ADwD I would frequent the Ice and Fire Update section. I noticed there is still the 'Done' post...any chance you'd put something up there, anything, even a simple word like 'writing'? It's fun to see stuff there. And since I'm asking also maybe a sample chapter for Winds? And start working on your Emmy speech for best drama. Mad Men will be de-throned by Thrones!

There's been a sample chapter from WINDS OF WINTER up on my website for many months now.

Re: Ice and Fire Update
Sorry, I meant to write a 'new' sample chapter.

Loved the theon chapter, and it has been there since december (just for trilambdas to know). Loved the blackwater episode also. Are you going to write the RW episodes also?
Looking forward to seeing you here in spain.

Re: Ice and Fire Update
thank you for letting us know. i didn't even check until now. even though i love cillian murphy and know it would be practically impossible for him to play Ramsay Bolton due to other work, i would love to see cillian murphy play that demented character. thank you for letting us know that jayne poole is still with us. she was totally wronged. she was just a stupid girl like sansa was and deserved no cruelty like that. in ADWD, i'm still in mourning for what *spoilers*, although ADWD's prologue seem to suggest what happens to my lord snow. is there anyone out there who likes theon at all, although i feel sorry for theon. even though i would love lots of previews from WOW, please, no more samples. how did stannis make it through? will be reading and rereading the sample like i did the others :)
