Ah, good. I was preceiving a tone to what you said that wasn't intended then--glad to hear it.
I don't know that I'd really consider myself a fan of Martin's exactly. Well, I don't know--I guess you could argue that I am. I do check his site every month or so to see if there are any updates, and I did take a good number of books to a signing with me when A Feast for Crows first came out, both of which seems a bit fanish. He's an author I'll buy in hardback without hesitation, which is pretty rare (actually, he's one of only three authors still living that I can say that about, now that Octavia Butler has died), which again could be considered fannish.
I don't quite self identify as a fan though. I could just be smoking crack on that one.
Do you know Steven Leigh? I ended up chatting with him, and with his wife (whose name escapes me), and with an extraordinarily elderly local guy from Dayton (whose name also escapes me) at the signing for quite a while, and all three of them struck me as great people.
