Who else is fascinated by the development process of ASoIaF?

I have a bit of an obsession with all the changes that have been made to the story as it’s been written due to George’s creative process. This includes changes to the number of volumes and the shifting split-points in the story, the infamous five year gap, foreshadowing that’s been abandoned, chapters that George has rewritten from different points of view, chapters that have moved from the end of one book to the beginning of another, the process of splitting Feast/Dance, and so on.

It would be wonderful to be able to read parallel universe versions of the books where these various things happened differently, to see what moves around to where, which storylines change or disappear completely, what the 3/4/6 book versions of the series would have looked like, what the original Feast would have looked like, etc.

Who else has this strange curiosity and what are the things you’d most like to know about?
