OMG, I’m so thrilled through the roof right now. Just read the latest announcement on GRRM’s blog (which is not a blog, of course):

This just looks beyond cool. As a huge Jurassic Park, Dinotopia, The Land before Time and, frankly, anything DINOSAUR fan, I so need to get this immediately once it’s out.

I wonder what the plot’s gonna be like. Will the bad guys use Tyrannosauruses and Velociraptors, and the good guys Stegosauruses and Triceratopses? That doesn’t seem very balanced. Will the dinosaurs be intelligent? Will they be able to talk? Or will they be basically nuclear weapons? And is this set in a complete alternate universe, or in medieval times that coincidentally also feature dinos?

SO excited!!
