George R.R. Martin On P.O.V. And The Meereenese Knot

Those who closely follow George R. R. Martin's musing and progress reports on his "Not a Blog" website are quite familiar with the "Meereenese Knot," a particularly difficult convergence of plot lines in Martin's A Dance With Dragons. Centered around the development of Daenerys Targaryen, the Knot provided crucial setup for the resolution of the A Song of Ice and Fire series over the next two books, and had fans hanging on Martin's every word leading up to the release of Dance.

We caught up with Martin recently at Bubonicon, and you can listen to the man himself explain what character finally provided the necessary viewpoint for the Knot's untangling.
