Quite possibly the best fantasy writer since Tolkien.

I love love love his work. Also, his style, with each chapter being in the point of view of a different person. The storylines and family ties are difficult to keep straight sometimes but it's so worth it because the tale that unfolds is so rich and multidimensional. He's not afraid to kill off your favorite characters; luckily, you probably end up having about seven favorites, so if he kills off three you've still got some left.

I desperately want the next book now Now NOW.

It's epic. It's gargantuan. It's exhilarating. It's dazzling. It's...

*Foams at the mouth and falls over backwards*

Ummm, what was I saying? Oh, yes. Whatever way you put it, it's a classic.

Hm, well Tyrion (cliche, but he does provide the majority of comic relief that is needed in such a heavy book) and Brienne (I like her stubborness) from the POVs and probably Sandor from the secondary characters. But I try to not get attached to anyone in particular, since as you know they might be dead on the next page :p Oh and I also "love to hate" Cersei.

I like Tyrion, Brienne, Daenerys, Bran, Sansa, and Jon for the main characters, and Mance Rayder and Podrick Payne from the small guys.

Discuss the epic series in here. Please use spoiler tags for discussion of A Dance with Dragons since that is still in hardcover.

I love this series. I think that you need a spreadsheet to keep track of who's alive and dead though.

I was very disappointed in Jon Snow's "death" at the end of A Dance with Dragons though

:(

I don't know.  I know there's a meme out there that every time someone asks Martin when the next book is out that he kills another Stark

    • Star Wars Reads Day 2013

      “Reading and Star Wars have gone hand-in-hand since 1976, when the novelization of the original Star Wars movie was released. Over the years, many fans have discovered the joy in reading through Star Wars books, and we hope to continue encouraging more people to read.”
      - Lucasfilm director of publishing Carol Roeder

      Today was the second annual Star Wars Reads Day across the US and book stores and libraries across the world were celebrating. Costumed volunteers and members of the 501st Legion were out in force at different book stores and libraries adding to the experiences of visitors of all ages. Along with bookstores like Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million, publishing partners like Abrams, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse, Del Rey, DK, Quirk Books, Random House Audio, Scholastic, Titan Magazines, and Workman also participated by providing materials.

      Activities at many locations included artists, costume contests, trivia, giveaways, and book sales. As a rule, Star Wars Reads Day must be a free and public event, since Lucasfilm has had a strong connection with books from the time of the first Star Wars novelization in 1976. Along with the donated time, many of the locations hosting Star Wars Reads Day donate to different charities.

      In its second year, the event has grown more than 67%, and doesn't look like it's going to be slowing down anytime soon.
