George R R Martin's new release has made me wonder are authors taking us for a ride?
The vast majority of us are eagerly awaiting Martin's Winds of Winter and Patrick Rothfuss' Door of Stone, we haven't been waiting a year or two we've been waiting what seems like decades. The release dates keep being changed but it's ok us as fans will still purchase.
Us fans of Thomas Covenant bought the final chronicles even though we needed a dictionary to understand a lot of it.
Feist we carried on reading the whole series but quality dropped and later books were littered with errors.
Stephen King told us to take it or lump it with the ending of The Dark Tower, he didn't care what we as fans thought. Yes he was correct but the arrogance of the statement made me grind my teeth.
Authors deserve respect, privacy and it is their decision what they write but sometimes it seems they couldn't care less about the people who pay their wages.
don't get me started on @Jo Zebedee and her promises on Inish 2
