Molybdenum & Evil Agent You are mistaken. Who said this? Who says he posted the update in the wrong place? I'm happy he gave an update and I don't care one bit where he posts it. I'm just pointing out to Kat that she was wrong to judge people a few weeks ago by saying they should not be looking at Martin's BLOG for any updates on the release date. I mentioned at the time that that was false because Martin *does* speak about ADWD on his blog ( albeit very succinctly) and his actual "update" page is never updated, and with GRRM now updating us about ADWD on his blog, that is only further confirmed to be false. GRRM's done nothing wrong here, and I haven't seen anyone who has said he has. Please do distinguish between someone criticizing an author and someone who is disagreeing with a fellow poster's take. Yes it required that you actually read what people say before you lash out, but that should be an acceptable sacrifice.
