New GRRM interview in the Montreal Gazette

GRRM was meeting the reporter right after we had lunch together on Thursday afternoon.

You can read and hear the full interview here.

I should bump into George again tonight at the annual Brotherhood without Banners Worldcon party!:-)

Cool! Although it ended kinda strangely...

get lost george, until u talk about the publication date of the 5th book, you're wasting air imo.
cheers.

He talks about the writing of the fifth book, confirming that has 1,000 MS pages completed and a couple of hundred in various stages of completion to finish off. His recent optimism seems to be continuing.

You had lunch with GRRM, now thats exciting. Did you guys discuss his Giants and their players legal troubles or did he just bash on our Cowboys all through lunch!!

Hope your having fun at Worldcon Pat!

I hate this type of "interview" where the journalist is constantly rambling along and sometimes puts in a quote by the interviewée. Oh well.

Fail. I clicked the wrong link.

I think it was a pretty cool interview... I really liked the bit were George said that if his first stuff would have gotten as well received as Ice and Fire, his attitude towards his fans would've been completely different, but now he appreciates every single fan. This is just too cool for words.

Though I have to agree that the end of this interview felt a bit embarrassing - I felt kinda sorry for the interviewer.

Good to know ADwD is coming along nicely, though! Over 1000 pages? That's fantastic.

Manuscript pages, it has to be emphasised. He has 1,000 done and another 200 in various stages of completion, for a finished book that should be longer than A GAME OF THRONES and A FEAST FOR CROWS but slightly shorter than A CLASH OF KINGS.

Sounds great! I wouldn't want them splitting books again. A Storm of Swords, although the longest in the series, to my memory, is like 2 really short little books, because when I read 'em, they had a huge text font and hence the (false) impression that the book itself was quick & short.

Juhan said...

That seems like the perfect length for the book to me! Somewhere just between A GAME OF THRONES and A CLASH OF KINGS. Perfect.

Now let's just hope George weaves it into A FEAST FOR CROWS very elegantly...

I have a feeling that A DANCE WITH DRAGONS might very well be his best book yet. We shall see.
