Interesting, Lia. I lurk at Westeros regularly (I do have an account there under this name but I've made maybe 20 posts ever so I'm definitely a lurker); I've read plenty of Linda's posts and have a lot of respect for her contribution to the fandom but I agree that that's out of line. Personally I'm in favour of leaving GRRM alone to write the book - the pressure must be incredible and I can't help but think that that must be part of what's delaying it. The man can't exactly produce top-quality writing on the demand of thousands of frenzied fans. That being said, posting one-star Amazon reviews on a book that hasn't yet been published is bad form. I can understand why she reported the post even if I don't agree with the vehemence of her response. Questioning or criticising GRRM doesn't make you a troll but those readers could have picked a better place to vent. I also think that Amazon shouldn't have allowed any reviews on an unpublished book; it's too easy for angry readers to abuse the review feature. How is your own writing going by the way? I noticed App asking for copies of your work on Facebook and was tempted to do the same - I'm currently in the middle of a highly tedious two-month long exam period.
