Vance, King, and Anime and Manga

[GRRM is asked which Jack Vance books have influenced him most.]

I love everything that Jack Vance has written, although some of it I love more than others.

Some of his series projects are particular favorites - the Dying Earth, the Demon Princes, the Planet of Adventure. His mysteries are good as well, especially BAD RONALD, a truly creepy concept.

[GRRM is asked the same question concerning Stephen King.]

Well, I like a lot of King as well. I think THE SHINING is probably his masterpiece.

[Does GRRM read manga or watch anime?]

No, don't follow manga or anime.
