George RR Martin in one of the rare moments when he isn't chained to a keyboard
15 February, 2018, 21:34
Replying to fans on his blog, Not A Blog, Martin said work continues on the fictional Westerosi encyclopaedia Fire and Blood, the first volume of which will come before The Winds of Winter. With the topic being Martin's upcoming series of companion novels, to be titled Fire and Blood, the author addressed something that has become a fairly standard question regarding The Winds of Winter and how the F&B volumes will affect the long-delayed sequel's release. 'The second is hardly begun.
Seeing as the first volume of the exhaustive Targaryen history is about to be completed, it is a safe bet that "Winds of Winter" will be following soon after. Most of FIRE & BLOOD consists of the "sidebars" I originally wrote for THE WORLD OF ICE & FIRE. "Abridged versions of some of those pieces appeared as [the novellas] The Princess and the Queen, The Rogue Prince, and The Sons of the Dragon, but these are the full versions, together with some chapters that have never appeared anywhere".
Martin didn't tease out when The Winds of Winter is to be expected, but suggested only Fire & Blood's first volumewill be released this year.
Thus, the vocal Internet fans who have made a pastime of reminding Martin to stop whatever he's doing and get back to writing TWoW, will likely be frustrated by this news.
The last Game of Thrones book, A Dance With Dragons, was released way back in 2011. Knowing Martin's publishing habits, it would seem too much to ask for two books in one year. I think it will be out this year.
Martin plans to end A Song of Fire and Ice after seven books.
