Okay, but you still owe me that 10 bucks.The nerdraging about Martin owing us anything is not only pathetic, it's misguided, selfish, and stupid. Martin owes you nothing, assholes. You're upset because you're disappointed. Saying that Martin (or any creator) owes anyone anything is ridiculous and wrong. I don't care if he'd promised with his own blood for a new novel every two years, he still doesn't owe you shit. Lucas owes you shit. Spielberg owes you shit. Nobody owes you anything.
I'm disappointed, too. I think Martin is lazy and I wish like hell he'd deliver on the promise of the first three books. But that's all ME. That MY problem, and it's yours, too. You can live with disappointment or you can write ridiculous screeds on the internet and get all bent out of shape over someone who owes you nothing.
Martin can write Westeros cookbooks for the remainder of his life, and if you're not happy with it, you've got some adjusting to the world to do.
