Gaston de Foix Posted July 18, 2020 Share Posted July 18, 2020 11 hours ago, Werthead said: I suspect they talked him around by noting that two novels at half the size would result in more money than one novel at the larger size. That is unquestionably the case. But, you know, if you are a member of this board I'm prepared to bet you would pay a significant fraction of your monthly disposable income in return for a chapter of Winds of Winter every month. Is that the standard authors should be adopting towards their fans? I know this was your implicit point Wert but I can't resist expressing my irritation and disappointment. A shoddily edited, uneven book that took six years divided into two for mercenary reasons? Fuck Penguin and shame on Jim. He's a smart guy and I'm sure he realized that fans would be disappointed which is why he tried to get Battle Grounds released at the same time. But he failed at that too, and frankly tweeting out a fan petition is a lame attempt to compensate for at least standing up for simultaneous release of his novels. Does anyone know who his editor is at Penguin? P.S. checked reviews on Amazon. Not surprised the hive mind has come to the same conclusion.
