    Just started on Thrones altho I must confess the second book is longer and the prospect of more books, at least a third one, right? is very intimidating. I am really enjoying it though and it's a great book to read while commuting.

    There are 3 out now and a 4th due out in the coming months. There will supposedly be 6 before all is said and done.

    You think they're already in the can? Perhaps they're sitting in his desk(top) just waiting to be sent off to the publisher.

    I like re-reading a series. Its like visiting with old friends. Maybe I'll start this one up.

    I saw that posted as well. But if you compare the sizes of his pages from the past, to book size pages, it will be roughly 2/3 of the finished number he lists. Aprox the same size as his others from the series. 900 pages, give or take.

    So far I think he's managed to avoid that. I found the third book as thrilling and epic as the first, if not more so. Since he's already put a cap on the books he intends to write and truly believes he can fit the rest of the plot into those remaining two books, I don't think it'll be another RJ.

    My guess is late Summer. As frustrating as it is, it should be worth the wait though.

    I agree, Sansa is really annoying. Yet I still feel that her role in the series will take a turn for the better. While she's no Arya, I think Martin is toughening her up slowly. Her character is not quite as wimpy in A Storm of Swords.

    The thing that always stikes me about GRRM is the large amount of disagreement there is amongst fans as to their favourite characters. Personnally, I think Sansa is one of the most interesting characters, whereas Jon is just boring. :p

    I think Sansa is heading down a most interesting path, she is the company of a master thats for sure. If anyone has shown they know what they are doing, it's Littlefinger.

    Personally I think Tyrion is one of the fantastic creations in epic fantasy.
