About Benjen Stark
Submitted By: Michael

I was wondering if you would comment on Benjen Stark's fighting ability. Is he on a level with Brandon, or is he more like Ned?

Depends on the kind of fight you had in mind.

Brandon was the best of the Starks with sword in hand, and the best jouster as well. But Benjen has other skills that serve him well as a ranger... and Ned was likely the best battle commander.

Gregor and Shagga

[Note: A picture of Haystacks Calhoun may be found here. Some research by your friendly neighborhood webguy reveals that he weighed in at about 600 lbs.]

I have somewhat of an inane question. I apologize in advance for the silliness of it but its been plaguing me. Here goes -

Gregor Clegane is a huge man. If you were to compare him to a professional wrestler, which would he be closest to in appearance? Attitude?

Sorry, I don't follow wrestling. The only wrestlers I know are Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, and mostly from movies.

I remember the wrestlers of my youth, though. I suppose Shagga could be compared to Haystacks Calhoun.

Official Home Page
Submitted By: Elio M. García, Jr.

For some time I have had two "home pages" -- my SFWA page, which contained my biography and bibliography, and my "Books for Sale" page at Mandala.net.

I have finally taken steps to combine the two into a single new, expanded Official Home Page, and I have moved it to a domain of mine own at

http://www.georgerrmartin.com/

The two old pages are gone now, so I would appreciate it if you would update your links ASAP.

And check out the new official page. It looks pretty good, and has some new features that I think will be of interest. We're adding more every day as well. I hope to able to update the page frequently.
