Gregor and Kafka

Did you ever read the classic book The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka? In the book the main character is a 'monster' by the name of Gregor.

Yes, I've read Kafka.

I was wondering if that book had any effect on when you named Gregor Clegane who is a monster in his own right.

Sorry, no.

Keep up the great work. I love books 1-3 and i cant wait for AFfC. :)

I'm still at work on A FEAST FOR CROWS. However, I have recently added a sample chapter to my website. That's the place to look for updates on completion and publication.

Keep reading.
