Looks like German Amazon site is allowing ordering A Dance With Dragons and shipping it right now (unlike regular Amazon site which lists the book only as pre-order):
http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/0553...ef=oss_product

I ordered it, will report if they really ship it tomorrow (that's what the orders page says).

Edit - false alarm. Looks like it was a mistake. The book is listed only for pre-order again.

Is it coming out early in Germany? Wikipedia says the US/UK release date is July 12, and I would think being an American book, we'd be the first to get it.

Looks like someone on German Amazon fucked up and the things there are back to normal, though my order page still says it'll be shipped tomorrow.

^ That would be a nice surprise, to say the least.

My copy will be downloaded onto the Kindle once the 'release' happens. Can't wait!!

Cheers,

The last couple at least have been released in the UK weeks or months ahead of the US due to their faster turnover from manuscript to the shelves. Mostly it is because the UK publisher has worse editing and quality of binding and much smaller numbers to put out.

Ooo, that'd be awesome. Any ideas who he could play?

You don't think...nah. He doesn't look like a Stannis. Does he?

I think Eccleston could do a great Stannis. The question for me is whether he'd take the role, which would (if the series gets renewed for those seasons) commit him to a three-year run at the very least. It keeps getting suggested that he doesn't want long commitments, though that may just be Internet gossip.

He might be willing to do it for a role that wouldn't be as intensive and time-consuming as a lead role like the Doctor was. Stannis is an important character, but he isn't a leading role.

Tony Curran had also auditioned for a role..but this was older news.
