It's News To Me #11 (A Dance With Dragons is Done!)

George R.R. Martin: Yep, you heard me correctly. The announcement's out, George is done with A Dance with Dragons. I have to say I'm still surprised. I honestly thought there'd be at least one more delay if a short one. Look out July 12, 2011!!!!!!! (Thanks Wertzone for the heads up)

The Wertzone: On that note, The Wertzone has a great summary of the ratings for HBO's Game of Thrones. No more Wertzone news, this is my blog. :)

Hugo Awards: The Hugo nominations are out. Alec was a big fan of The Dervish House and I own Feed, but have yet to read it. Can't say I'm all too interested in how this turns out. The David Gemmell Legends Award has it's final shortlist too, now that list is interesting.

Paul Kearney Interview: He talks about the newest/final book in the Macht trilogy, plus other projects he's been working on including the conclusion to the Sea Beggars trilogy. Love this author. Check out The Ten Thousand and Corvus for sure.

I know! Does that mean you'll be rereading the rest?

Yeah, I'll have to reread them but I want to wait until the first season is done. I think I've forgotten enough that I'll be surprised by what I see. I'm so excited! I get to watch it tonight...in English!

@edi - Good call! Both great authors. I'm really glad to hear all the good stuff happening to Kearney. I can't stop reading the guy.

@Writerly - Yes! Unless you really wanted to learn Spanish. :) Have fun, both episodes are awesome (the second one even better than the first).
