Yes! I think so too.  Can't wait to see how that comes out.

Hmm - let me check what he is saying now about the next book. I haven't 
checked in about a year because it is just too painful.  Hmm, an update was 
added on January 4. He's not done yet, but he has 911 pages. It won't let me

sure we will get Feast for Crows some time this year.  Perhaps in time for
