I don't worship GRRM as others do .. I am, however, a student of his work and have known him a long, long time, and, I can say I have read everything he's ever written, many more than once .. I also have enough respect for the man to not get into the why's and where's of his way of doing things ..
on his work, it's not as great as some like to think .. he borrows from this and that and molds it to his liking, much like other authors .. there is not much in the way of new ground .. yes, people like to compare him to Tolkien .. wrongly so, IMO
Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
