Why do you hate ASOIAF fans? What did we ever do to you, besides constantly nag you? Seriously ASOIAF is a drug and I'm an addict. I'm on my 4th re-read and really need something stronger. UpDate PLEASE!!!!!

Have you also read A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS and THE WORLD OF ICE & FIRE and the stories in DANGEROUS WOMEN and ROGUES? There's another one coming out later this year in THE BOOK OF SWORDS.

And if you're read all that, there's twenty-three Wild Cards books to entertain you.

Yes
I can tell you all about Dunk and Aegon, Maester Yandel's book to Tommen,(Along with the Maps both paper and the app) The King of the Stepstones, Rhaenyra getting plump and squabbling with Alicent, and listening to Jorah Mormont narrate the story. I've read everything along with many reddit theories. Also my daughter really enjoys "The History" pictures and illustrations while I summarize Targaryen stories at bed time.

After finishing a series or Author like KKC, First Law, or of B Sanderson I always go back to my drug of choice which is ASOIAF. I tried to quit, but i just can't. It's really an Addiction.

RE: Re: Yes
Yes I have, along with the Game of Thrones coloring book. I must say there's a too much detail in the coloring book. Kids level coloring books are much more fun.

Talking about weighing in...
Mr.Martin:

I wrote an article recommending Wild Cards. I hope it is published so I can send to Melinda Snodgrass and you (well, that's the plan, at least), but talking about weighing in ourselves in Aces High, also talking about sources of joy in your next entry, and in case it isn't published, I take the liberty of post in some of its excerpts (The article is originally written in Spanish, so, excuse me any inconsistency in its translation):

"Personally, the most striking thing I find in Wild Cards is its constant reminder that not even the fictional characters can escape that karma that gnaws the existence. Every action has a consequence and not even the most advanced superhero can avoid this inexorable principle. Do you want to absorb knowledge? Careful, someone absorbed the personalities of Julius Robert Oppenheimer (...) She had a brilliant mind, but ended up forgetting who she was(...) Maybe you can still remain anonymous if you can lift objects (...) But ... you still need a regular job, and to fall in love, and to have a family, at what time do you plan to save the world? It is better to cast away the woman of your life with some mediocre excuse because you do not have the time to do everything! Oh! You could freeze time! However, have you been freezing it lately? Last week you were forty years old and today you look like sixty years old.

Therefore, if you are one of those who still keeps a comic under the bed, or one of those who wake up scared because, at his thirties, you dreamed of saving ladies in trouble, do not worry. Just as the children have their Spiderman, their Batman and their Aquaman, we can have our Great and Powerful Turtle, our Croyd Crenson and our Fortunato (...)

I invite you to read this work of fiction that can remove you from reality - something that is needed from time to time - but it is also able to keep you oldered to Earth like the roots of a tree to the ground. And most importantly, Wild Cards made me fly very high, as you read it, do not forget to also do it, my dear Ace”

I hope you like it.

Zoroastrianism and the red god
As an Iranian fan of your books, I always wondered if the rich history of Persia also had any influence in ASOIF. It came to my attention that Azor Ahai is somehow similar to “Ahura Mazda”, the god that is prayed in Zoroastrianism. I would like to ask you if there is any connections or if any event in the books are somehow the fiction version of Persian history.

Thanks!
I love that your books have so much re-readability. Thank you so much the time and attention you give your works. As the master you are I expect nothing less, and also expect for the time needed to reciprocate such work is taken. Thank you again (and for the ASOIAF short stories I did not know about).
