And Speaking of Subterranean...

... I am pleased to be able to announce that they have just signed up artist Marc Fishman to illustrate their deluxe limited edition of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.

Don't know Fishman's work? Go to http://www.marcfishman.com/ and check it out. He's amazing, and it will be a real thrill to work with him.

I've actually had a Fishman cover once before. His painting "The Return of the King" (which can be seen on the website) was used by my German publishers as the cover for one of their volumes of A FEAST FOR CROWS. A gorgeous painting... but of course it has nothing to do with my books, Goldmann just plucked it out of their Big Box o' Fantasy Covers and decided it was close enough. It's the best of the covers I've gotten on my German paperbacks, beyond a doubt, but all the same I'm jazzed to know that this time Marc will actually be painting the characters, scenes, and settings from my book.

If you'd like to get in the queue to snag a copy of the illustrated DANCE, it is never too late to drop by the SubPress website and place your order.

Re: Finish Time
I felt the same way about FEAST when I initially read it. I reread it 2 years later (that's right 2 YEARS (geez George!)) and felt more kindly disposed toward it.

Still, it's a dramatic departure from what preceded it. I think it was a mistake to take up Cersei's perspective. I also don't like the treatment of Briene, which felt akin to a soap opera-type cliff-hanger.

The book also felt disjointed for obvious reasons.

I guess I've also felt raw about George splitting the book in two. That probably colored my first reading of it. I liked it a lot better the second time around. But, like you, I don't think it's as good as the first three.

Here's hoping DANCE is a return to form.
