    Wasn't there some hype awhile back that we should look for it late 2006 to early 2007?

    Man! I want the next book so badly. Think of it - Dany/Jon/Tyrion chapters again. Mmm.

    It makes me sad too. :(

    The nice thing about so-called "minor" authors is - they're fairly good about getting their books out on schedule. (Jacqueline Carey comes to mind.) It's incredible.

    Sorry, I get mixed up with the numbers.

    Almost a year. I'll have to reread the series to catch anything I may have missed the first time through.

    Just needed to clarify that - I'd be seriously worried if it had been a year! :D

    I noticed the last UPDATE he did about ADWD was in February 2007. We're coming up on a year there.

    You know, the hardest part really isn't waiting for the next book. It's knowing that as soon as we get ADWD, I'll read it in one day and then have to wait another 3 years. I mean - what if he dies or something? I might kill myself!

    Don't even think about that!

    (hopefully, he would have a "successor" designated, just in case...)

    I just wish he'd give us updates more frequently. Just a "btw, I wrote a paragraph today on ADWD" would be awesome.

    I'll do that too. I guess one of the ways to pass the time is re-read the series more slowly.

    That's what happened with Robert Jordan and the Wheel of Time :(. But I don't think it will happen to GRRM.

    OR find other authors to read. :p Impossible to believe, but there ARE other writers out there. xD

    @ Rach: Yeah, it's really kinda' frustrating...

    Oh.
    My.
    God.

    It just occurred to me that I might be in Japan when it comes out - spring of '08 right?! I'll be gone for March and April... I think that I'll DIE if I don't get it the day it comes out... T.T

    Lol, I think all GRRM fans will die if they don't get it the day it comes out :D.

    Btw, I found this comic while surfing the web.

    Could you order it to Japan, Liadan? Having to wait even longer for it would really suck...

    Maybe your parents could pick it up the day it comes out and ship it to you. Probably faster than waiting for a release in Japan.

    LOL. Who is the one with the birds nest on his head. I guess we are looking for a dead person.

    Edit: It is Joffrey of course. Didn´t recognize him with a smile. Where is the pouty lips?
