If I said Martin posted two days ago that the next ASOIAF book "should be completed soon" would anyone believe me?

You'll notice Woodpile is being vague about which ASOIAF book GRRM recently said would be completed soon.

I am eagerly awaiting the release of the new Game of Thrones book, "A Westeros Cook Book" where Binging with Babish creates recipes for all the food described in the book.

I may honestly buy that.

I might believe he was publishing a blank book with a single page at the end dedicated to letting you know his next one will be out even more quickly than the last.

quote:

Martin responded to fans questions on his LiveJournal page over The Winds of Winter’s status, the sixth book in the popular A Song of Ice and Fire series. Martin said he’s throwing his efforts into Fire & Blood, the two-volume encyclopedia for A Song of Ice and Fire. The plan is to finish the first volume of Fire & Blood before returning to The Winds of Winter, the author said.

“The first volume should be completed soon,” Martin wrote. “The second is hardly begun. Most of Fire & Blood consists of the ‘sidebars’ I originally wrote for The World of Ice and Fire. Abridged versions of some of those pieces appeared as ‘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 volume will be released this year. That means those waiting to find out what happens after A Dance with Dragons, which was released in 2011, will have to wait at least another year before continuing the main saga.

just lol

Vanity Fair has an article explaining how angry GRRM is that the show is ahead of him and ruining his twists by revealing them before he writes them.

At this point I think he is rewriting WoW to make it different since he is now mad about the show.

With few exceptions, the scenes not taken from a book are the worst ones. Though I guess season 5 was the worst of them even if I didn't love the most recent one.

Once the show finishes the series I'll probably just read the Wikipedia synopsis of the books if they're ever released.

Also I think once spoilers for the show have started getting confirmed we need one last Bad Thread blitz of spoilers in TVIV. It's our last ride until a Wild Cards show gets picked up by HBO. But it's not as fun spoilering things about people with octopus noses since I doubt anyone will take it as seriously as they do with GoT.

Why would you write an encyclopedia for a series that isnt even completed. His publisher should put out a 'ASOIAF: The Complete Collection' thats just all the books out now just to piss him off.

Remember. Dance with Dragons was rushed out the door 80% finished to get it on shelves before the show premiered. He has had 8 years now to finish at least one more book. He did not. I want to say GRMM is the victim of his own success, but no, that’s not true, he’s the victim of other, vaguely more competent people’s success.

I wonder how we would all react if the book ever was released. I'm guessing the first book quotes from Winds of Winter in this thread would either be a food porn excerpt or something about nipples.

You know, I was sure they would release SOMETHING holiday 2018. For them to to miss releasing the book while the show is on air.. it's a major marketing gently caress up. So I expected them to cobble together his chapters and ship whatever they had available. But I guess that Fire & Blood book will fill the holiday slot for this year.

It shows that GRRM loves this detailed fantasy world he created, and have no idea how to finish the story he was telling on it (apart from those vague bullet points he passed to HBO)
