It is! :) I've actually read about 150 pages of the next one, A Clash of Kings, when I was bored at my friends place and just started reading without any idea of what's been going on, heh. I'd been meaning to get around to starting it from scratch for about a year. Now is as good a time as any!

Really, really looking forward to this as well. Even if I'll have to wait until the middle of next year as I don't buy trade paperbacks.
