  1. He did actually say that it isn't him: "He's a really terrific addition, however, a great guy and a fine writer, and aside from me and maybe Elio and Linda, I don't know anyone who knows and loves Westeros as well as he does."
  2. It sounds like he is just doing consulting, though.
  3. But isn't that his initial plan? At least that's what I got from him in AFFC.
  4. Technically, the Blackfyres are Targaryens.
  5. I'm quite strange. I remember enjoying Feast much more than Dance and found it hard to believe that they were intended to be the same book.
  6. So Joffrey was not familiar with Valyrian steel?
  7. As PJ points out, Tyrion comes to the conclusion that Joffrey was behind it because Joffrey said he was familiar with Valyrian steel, but at the same time concludes that Joffrey couldn't have been familiar with it because he wouldn't be foolish enough to pick Littlefingar's knife. How does that scan?
  8. Wow. That is what I call an optimistic conclusion.
  9. As someone on Reddit pointed out: GRRM is a true Hedge Knight.
  10. About that, some are speculating that GRRM might go for 8 books after all.
  11. The moment I hold the book in my hands.
  12. GRRM talked a bit about TWoW at the Guadalajara Book Fair, saying, among other things, that: As if things weren't grim enough already in the books. PS: Credit to @BryndenBFish
  13. Did someone claim to have a scoop?
  14. So the worst case scenario is that GRRM got himself into not one but two new knots (and the Mereenese knot isn't even fully resolved). Looks like we could be in for a really long wait.
  15. "Once upon a time in Winter" ft. Marillion. I definitely expect it to overtake "Rains of Castamere" at #1 on Westerosi charts.
  16. I assume that Cat was the one who named Robb, then.
  17. At least there is no one named Dick of House Head. I'm thankful for that.
  18. But he did say that Tyrion's chapters in ADWD were harder to write because of their dark nature, as quoted in OP. So that's, at least, one of the problems. @BryndenBFish Do you think GRRM encountered similar problems with TWOW?
  19. While interesting, it's not very encouraging.
  20. But it is already included in the ADWD paperback. Is it their go-to spoiler chapter for all new editions?
  21. I know that he is controversial and I disagree with most of his theories myself, but I think he could be right on this one, at least partially. Thoughts?
  22. Yeah, there is nothing wrong with his oratory skills.
  23. I agree. Dany proves that her dragons are the ones that are woken out of stone and not the ones on Dragonstone. Hence the "slayer of lies".
  24. More than anything, I think he is right about Dorne declaring full war on the OT once they see/hear about Robert Strong.
  25. On the other hand, he might just have used TWoW as an exuse to decline this guy's invitation. That con is small and he probably gets many such invitations.
