We’ve added a link to a new interview at the So Spake Martin collection, this one by Catalan blog Adria’s News. It’s an excellent interview with GRRM, covering a wide range of topics connected both to the books and the TV series, with a lot of questions and answers one doesn’t often see in more run-of-the-maill interviews. It’s a good read, though I’ll note there’s some small grammatical errors in the course of transcription (pretty sure GRRM repeated his old remark that trying to please everyone, rather than “anyone”, to give an obvious example).
There are spoilers, but they are hidden behind spoiler protection.

very good interview and a nice find! Interesting to know about Tolkien replying to every letter, I can see why GRRM is annoyed he didn't write to him, given that was his hero in a sense...

interesting that GRRM was a fan of scifi before fantasy. I think Zelazny coined the term Science Fantasy. one single genre.
I liked reading this interview. thanks for posting.
