My friend Janice Gelb sent me this great link from The Onion.

Future SoIaF Books
This is completely off the subject, but I know that at one point you posted what the titles of future Ice & Fire books are going to be. Could you post these again, in some more permanant place, please? I've completely forgotten them. Does anyone here know what they are? Thanks.

And, not to look too far ahead, but I hope to see the next ones within a few years too.

Re: Score!
It's a shame that, due to the internet's seemingly endless supply of morons, open communication so often deteriorates into flaming, even on a god dammed fansite.

Reminder: if you truly care about A Song of Ice and Fire, a work of art and effort, you'll want grrm to take his sweet time with every word in every line. There's real opportunity for this series to be remembered 75 years as a genre classic. You don't rush something like that.

And dammit, he's not here to babysit you either. If he posts, that's awesome, but your happiness shouldn't be a function of it.

We love you George. I hope you don't shut your journal down, but I'd sure understand it if you did.

Re: Score!
Good point. Don't you dare ask GRRM to follow up like he said he should. If he wants to make his consumers... er... fans waiting he can!

Yes, I'm being sarcastic. Look, we're not looking for him to finish his book. Okay, we'd just love that, but what we're really after is the warm fuzzy that we get when he says "I just got another chapter done! Things are progressing nicely. Look for my book sometime in the spring! And geez these anonymous people out there are attractive and witty!"

Re: Score!
The issue at hand isn't whether or not it's nice to hear from grrm. It is, that's why we're here, that's why he set this blog up. The issue is dipshits complaining when he doesn't do exactly what they want, as if it were his responsibility to pay heed to our beck and call. If you care about the guy, show it. Be grateful when he takes time out of his busy life to post a message on his blog, but don't get pissed off when he can't.

Update...
Yes, I would like an update, like many others, but I'm hoping that your lack of updates (since they're usually about your tour dates and football) means that you are working very hard indeed. So I will give you the benefit of the doubt, keep up the good work!

actually i think it is more in reference to robert jordan's "wheel of time" series that never seems to have an end. AND THE FREAKING VILLAINS NEVER EVER DIE!!! Actually i think only one character has died. that witch lady that started it all. it's been a while since i've given up on that series. (after the 800 page book where only three days transpired and before the prelude book came out) God i hate that robert jordan

Very Interesting Here!
Hello world! I'm from Latvia, I now have a computer and Internet! It's so interesting here! But on some forums I see strange posts, they offer to buy some pills or something and they look very stupid. It is robots posting? I thought moderators should delete such posts. Maybe somebody will explain me what's going on? But at all it is very interesting to speak to all you people!
Kisses! :)

Virtual SEX
I can not find a site like this.
This site specializes in free virtual sex games.
These sex games are xxx, x-rated for adults only. For real, I'm 100% serious.
I know most of the web has become nothing but a giant bait-and-switch game,
but I give you my word this site really contains a game where you can have
interactive virtual sex as advertised! These fully interactive sex games work like
todays most popular CD-ROM games These are NOT just sliding puzzles or
Tetris games that reveal a static picture as you play Hear the girls moan and
scream when YOU bring them to climax! Pulsing techno soundtrack while you play our sex
games Features easy one-handed virtual sex There are no applications to download or
plug-ins required. You may begin playing the virtual sex games instantly Can where you
find

    Still working on that. When we have a final, I will share it.

    All the Wild Cards books under Tor have had absolutely stellar covers. I'd frame them and hang them on my wall if I could.

    Are all these examples digital artwork? It doesn't look like traditional oil on canvas. I miss the fantasy/sci-fi covers of the '70s and '80s. Even the paperbacks had amazing covers.

    Whatever anyone can get their hands on is, I suspect, the right answer.

    At the last party, it was an open bar with pretty much everything you can imagine on offer. There were some special drinks as…

    Any chance you could tell us who’s doing the cover art for Fire and Blood? And maybe when we can expect a glimpse of it. Thank you!
