So you’ve just had a heated debate with a friend over whether Arya ate people in a wolf dream. You know it’s in there somewhere, but your friend categorically denies it. Time to bust out this FULL TEXT SEARCH TOOL and settle it here and now.
Most people think that, when there is news about the Winds of Winter, George is going to post about it here first. In fact, Brynden B Fish says that “GRRM has repeatedly said that he’d announce TWOW on his blog first.” And he’s kind of an expert on this topic, seeing as how he wrote the Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource above.
Also, George likes to interact with his readers in the comments section – which is pretty awesome.
