AFFC is a good book--I'm not sure it really drops of in quality--it sort of goes in different directions in order to expand the world (somewhat akin to The One Tree, that way...) for later, it just not what we're used to.

I assume George was being humorous referring to it as a Storm with Swords... Razz

On October 10, 2010, at the New York Comic Con, Spectra senior editor Anne Groell states that Martin has announced he has five chapters remaining, with sections of the chapters already completed. She also wants to get the manuscript completed by December.

She does, does she? Well, *I* wanted the manuscript done *two* Decembers ago and *that* didn't happen, either!

But seriously, folks... This is good news. We might see the next book within a year or so.

Maybe Martin could do NaNo to motivate him to finish those last five chapters.... Wink

Aliantha,

FYI, Martin was not happy with his editor making that anouncement. He's made the comment that his Chapters have a habit of "breeding like Rabbits" and will not make a prediction of a completion date. I hope this is good news but it is not definiatively good news.

I'd really like to have a copy of ADWD to get signed at the Reno worldcon next year to go along with my new first edition copy of ACOK.

Ah, so no news really. It's not finished and will not be finished in the foreseeable future.

Yeah? Well, too freaking bad. I didn't like my parent's making me do my homework when I was a kid, either. But I grew up. GRRM needs people like Anne to push him towards adulthood, apparently.

Sounds like a good idea. However, it may not be necessary, if this quote is any indication:


Vito Corleone wrote:
"Hello, Mr. Martin, my name is Vito Corleone. My wife, Carmela, she is a great fan of your work. I look forward to giving her Dance With Dragons for Christmas, as she's been anxiously waiting for it for several years now. Some might say, too many years. I know you're a busy man, Mr. Martin. But I'd consider it a personal favor to myself, my wife, and my family if you could finish this book. If you need further incentive, I'm sure I can make you an offer you can't refuse."

If he doesn't, will he find a dragon's head in his bed tomorrow morning?

He writes the way he writes. I want a good product that he is comfortable with. Until that is produced no amount of pressure is going to matter. In fact I imagine it could be counterproductive.

I heard about this over at Westeros.org:

http://www.televisionzombies.com/2010/12/21/tvz-ep-149-george-r-r-martin/

It seems GRRM has stated, with qualifiers (per usual) he's almost untied the "Mereenese Knot" that has plagued ADWD for years. He's also said, with qualifiers, he has a couple of big announcements (maybe) for a fan meet up on January 9, 2011.

I'm really hoping we'll see ADWD before August.

Sadly GRRM suffered an Ecoli infection over the holidays and was hospitalized for a time. He's advised everyone the announcement he was hoping to make on January 9 is no longer possible, at this time.
