This should definitely be worth the money for the Ice & Fire-fan who feels like staying with the setting while its master works on the next book. No, I'm not in it (just to say that I have no motive for posting this other than as a news item).
It does allow me, however, to say that my own book, long-delayed but finished years ago, Waiting for Winter: Re-reading A CLASH OF KINGS (Part II) will be out in the foreseeable future as well, and then its time to turn in the third book collecting my observations on A Storm of Swords.
