That's awesome. I never listened to the audio books. I've only read Dance twice, but when I started over and realized that Lord Wyman paid respects to Bran at Winterfell in Clash upon a quick rereading, I liked him even more. The fact that these characters are embedded early on, and then turn up to be second tier characters later in the story makes it so much better. Nobody appears out of thin air - except maybe the Griffs.
