George RR Martin is the writer behind the greatest fantasy series ever, A Song of Ice and Fire. His latest book has been due for years now and legions of rabidly loyal fans have spent the past few years raging across the internet demanding the next installment. And all the rest of the installments, as fast as possible please.
George RR has set a publication date in a way that seems pretty solid. I wonder how many fantasy nerds are going to book off the previous week from work to finish rereading the series just in time for the new book? Thankfully my boss is pretty easygoing and I suspect I won't have a problem timing it just right.
