More of George and Parris being pressed.
Parris left this comment in a NAB entry from 2010. Nine years after the Hugo Awards.
I’m still bitter and angry about that particular rocket. Rowling writes in the genre, but she is not of the genre, if you get my meaning, and Storm of Swords is a mighty Everest of fantasy writing.
Hell, despite multiple attempts to contact Rowling and even her editors at the US publisher to let them know of the nomination, the con com had to find a childrens”s librarian who was attending the convention to ‘accept’ the award in Rowlings name. I don’t think the publisher even bothered to tell the con com where to send the rocket.
No, I don’t get your meaning. You sound like a pressed bitch. I mean, mighty Everest of fantasy writing? Please call a doctor and have your head dislodged from your anus.
And then George has this to say in the same entry regarding HP:
Actually, I don’t mind Harry Potter… although the last book sucked. THe ones that came before were enjoyable enough.
My friend Melinda Snodgrass had a much better ending for the HP seires than the one Rowling came up with. And I won’t even get into the hundres of pages of Harry Goes Camping.
For kid’s fantasy, I’d take HP over Narnia any day.
I can’t imagine GRRM reacting too well to another high profile author flat out saying his latest book sucked, though they would be quite right to do so.
Um, no one gives a shit about your friend Melinda Snodgrass. Why even bother mentioning it.
Okay, I think George has every right to say he doesn’t like a particular book. But combined with the previous comments he’s made whenever he shades HP it comes off as very childish, as if he can’t believe she finished her series and it’s so much more popular even though his series is *clearly* (in his eyes) superior.
Get the fuck over it.
