The first thing I thought of when I heard about this was Cyrus's famous quote from The Warriors film:
"CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKERS?"
Oh, I can dig it alright. I probably wasn't the only Martin fan who squealed with delight and almost wet myself as the cover art for A Dance With Dragons was unveiled. Apart from anything else, it's probably the strongest indication that this long-awaited tome might actually surface later this year.
You can check out the (fresh and minty) artwork over at The Wertzone: http://thewertzone.blogspot.com/2008/02/coming-soon-dance-with-dragons-and-some.html
Thanks to Adam for the scoop. Now we just all cross our fingers and hope.
