I think the GRRM fans have us beat in terms of patience. ^^
That's true.

I think they do, yes.

Ambitious, considering the progress bar is only at 64%. But he has been known to miscalculate estimates before, so I take that with a big grain of salt.

Indeed.
Like when he estimated a July1 completion in early June, with the book-o-meter stuck at 50% ...
 :o

Honestly, I'm beginning to think he just rolls d12 for months-away, and adds d100/3 days past the 1st of the month.

(is a RPG'ing reference, for those of you unfamiliar -- but we know Jim is a RPG-geek (among his other geekeries), so it's not actually that improbable...)

LOL,  It would be a good way to use d12, which is usually quite underused.
Harry himself plays RPG with his friends. I like that so much.

64%  I'm hoping inertia is in our favor now!

Woot!  2% per day would see completion in just 17 more days!!!
(this is not my prediction, however)

Seventeen,  almost 18 books in 25 years? Seems fast to me, and that's not counting 2 other series, how many shorts, an a con schedule every year. The dude is working.
