George is back from wherever and has notified us in a new blog post. No sign of any hint of The Winds of Is Winter Coming? have given up that thought as well).
Meanwhile, after season three of the television show has finished, I've barely given thought to Ice & Fire due to work and my current fixation on collecting Forgotten Realms lore, but I'll be reading the next chapter of A Storm of Swords one of these days, as well as take a look at my script for Waiting for Winter: Re-reading A Clash of Kings because it seems now that it will finally see the light of day, as an e-book, but more about this when things are properly planned and discussed with the new publisher. Meanwhile, if you're in need of an Ice and Fire fix why not visit the Tower of the Hand, perhaps the best fan site for the saga with an ever-increasing amount of articles, discussions, reads and re-reads and much, much more; or Winter is Coming, the biggest fan site for the HBO show, where discussion has already turned toward Season 4, or any of the many blogs you can find using Google to see just how many people who are invested in this series (and its outcome).
Halfway through Richard Awlinson's Tantras (gods, but this is bad writing yet still alluring), more than halfway through 1356 and stuff. See ya.
