Odo, That's totally fair. I'm gonna go back in there and make it less absolute. There are, indeed, some stories that focus on the zombies and give those zombies distinct personalities and character arcs. I was focusing my mind on traditional zombie stories, but with zombie romance on the rise...

adante, You're absolutely right, and I apologize. I've added a note right before the Q&A begins. Thank you for calling my attention to that. I should have known better than to let that go.

Tyrion, Great name, BTW. My favorite character by far. I couldn't agree with you more. I actually feel like the wait between books gives us an opportunity to really digest what he's offered us. And personally, I like to go back and read at least the book that most recently came out before a new release. The second time reveals so much amazing detail when you're not caught up in "What happens next?!" reading.

Whoa, Eddie! Good eye. Yeah, I totally forgot about them making "pre-Rick" cameos! Well done.

Oh, I must disagree, David. I think the way George "tortures" us all with years between new releases has been genius and has acted as a buffer for such a saga to get too sloggy. I can't wait until the next one and, as I've said each time, I'm going to try to read it slowly to savor it for as long as possible. (After which I call in sick to work, unplug all technology, curl up in bed and barely eat until I know that Arya and Tyrion are okay.) But to address that concern for his longevity, he himself brought this up in an interview with "Entertainment Weekly" last year. Here's what he said: "I know the ending in broad strokes. I don’t know every little twist and turn that will get me there, and I don’t know the ending of every secondary character. But the ending and the main characters, yeah. And [Game of Thrones producers] David Benioff and Dan Weiss know some of that too, which the fans are very worried about in case I get hit by a truck."

Sincere apologize to Al Gore. That was truly an innocent typo!
