Despite the fact that the ever-erudite superversive is fairly accurate in his criticisms of the nihilistic worldview of Song of Ice and Fire. (WARNING: LINK CONTAINS SPOILERS!)

But I really want to see what happens next in the story.
So, off to the bookstore I go, feeling like such a chump. Charlie Brown, I feel your pain about Lucy and that football.
