A Dance With ... Vampires?

A little over two years have past since the last "official" update from George. And that update was a rewrite of an update from January 2007. Earlier this week he shared that he completed a troubling Tyrion chapter. That is great and all but doesn't he understand what we have been dealing with and going through in the meantime?

Sure there was plodding pleasantly through 'Anathem' and rereading Orwell's classics but now I'm down to 'Twilight.' And last night I was informed that the fourth book sucked and that I should stop at three. That would be 'Breaking Dawn' and 'Eclipse' respectively -

Ahhhhhhhhh ...

Must. Resist. Trolling. Twilight.

To remind yourself why you wait for Martin, try grinding your way through Jordan. Not pretty.

Or catch up on the classics (in no particular order):
--the Wrinkle in Time series - Madeleine L'Engle
--the Robot/Foundation series - Isaac Asimov
--the Dune series - Frank Herbert
--the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant - Stephen R. Donaldson
--the Hyperion Cantos - Dan Simmons
--the Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis
--the Zones of Thought books (A Fire Upon the Deep & A Deepness in the Sky) - Vernor Vinge
--the Lord of the Rings - Tolkien
--Neuromancer - William Gibson
--the Left Hand of Darkness - Ursula K LeGuin
--The Amber Chronicles - Roger Zelazny
--the Dark Tower series - Stephen King

...and for your wives: The Time Traveler's Wife - Audrey Niffenegger

Second vote for Vinge and the first Covenant series.

Jordan's last book, not written by him, is much better.
