So there's been an announcement that A Dance with Dragons by GRRM is being published July 12 2011. Holy crap, the wait is almost over for fans ^.^
That is A REALLY QUICK turnaround time. He's only very close to finishing the book right now... I wonder if they meant 2012?
Here is where I got the news
Edit I was wrong looks like GRRM himself confirms the 2011 date http://www.georgerrmartin.com/if-update.html
