    Ha! I read the uncut edition which is 1,300 pages. I actually would rather read one 1,000 page book than five 200 page books.

    Yes I will read Fire and Blood. I’ll read anything he puts out that has to do with the GOT universe. Of course everyone wants Winds but I’ll read it. Have you read the Dunk and Egg short stories? It happens a century before the current GOT. I loved it.

    It’s 8 books and finished. It’s good but it’s long, but at least it’s finished. He wrote book 4 after he was done and it took place between books 4 and 5. That was pretty neat. King is a genius. I’ve liked book 4 the most as it was a prequel.

    No. Is it by King? Is it a stand alone or in a collection. I’ll check it out if the library has it.

    It's under the pseudonym Richard Bachman,

    I bought it as a collection in the late 80's.

    Came with Rage, Roadwork, The Long Walk and The Running Man.

    If I remember right.

    I’ll check it out next time I go to the library. I haven’t read many short stories. That might be a good change of pace.

    Heck yes I did and loved it too. It was so much more relaxing a read than the usual GOT stuff :D

    He is in such bad shape and he is 70. I’m praying he has the best doctors money can buy and he lives into his 90’s. I’d give him a kidney if he needed it. I’d love more Dunk and Egg stories. They were definitely a change of pace.

    I've been watching serial killer documentaries on Youtube. The Iceman Tapes was really good. Watching one on H.H. Holmes now, who's one of my favorites.

    Not yet, but on the list now! I also bought some new books on NLP and fixed income so there's a lot to learn. Wait, no, the serial killer docs definitely aren't for learning....












    Or are they? MWHAHAHAHAHAHA

    I haven't, is it historical fiction? I couldn't figure out what it was from the IMDB description and then forgot about it. I'm watching the new season of It's Always Sunny; clearly in the same wheelhouse :) . You ever watch it?

    Mindhunter shows how they developed the techniques Dennis uses

    the last ep of Sunny wasnt great. the female boggs story was not funny at all
