Long have I awaited the coming of that which was foretold... George RR Martin's Feast For Crows. Yes, it's the 4th book in the series, and it is like crack. I want that book. But UPS lost it. It shows as "Front Door"; I've never had anything stolen before. But it isn't here. I'm going to have to report it missing and wait for a replacement. I was so busy coding and setting up certificate authorities and such that I didn't have time to even check that it had arrived... and when I did, I discovered it had gone missing. Grrrr.
The upshot of all this is that I make this blog post, because if you haven't read GRRM's masterwork, you're missing out. If you are interested, start with book one, Game of Thrones, and proceed from there. It takes about 200 pages of Game of Thrones to get into the groove, and then there's no stopping it.
