At least eleven years after the publication of the last novel in the Iron Throne saga, George R.R. Martin has provided some news for the next installment.
Accused (rightly) of failing to finish the film and spoiling the previous eight seasons, Game of thrones He keeps shedding a lot of tears and ink…except for George R.R. Martin, whose pen seems to have dried out for a few years now. While the series was based on his novel fire and bloodwhich relives the main events of the Targaryen dynasty, will soon appear on the screens, The sixth and penultimate volume of the literary saga continues to be slow to invest in libraries.
Here she is now some eleven years This is amateurs throne of iron Patiently waiting for release Winter winds. She began writing the popular novel in 2010, and has since been hit by multiple delays, well past the initially planned publication date of 2016.

It suffices to work out the expectations of the many fans who are impatient with the idea of knowing the rest of the action (and being able to wash memories of the final season from their minds). Very active on his blog, titled Sober Not a blogSo, the author insisted Give some news about the concerned workIt defines in passing the inevitable comparisons between the series and the book:
I recently noticed that my gardening [métaphore employée par le romancier pour décrire son processus d’écriture, ndlr] I’m getting more and more away from the series. Yes, there are items from Game of Thrones to be found in The Winds of Winter (albeit under different circumstances), but much of the story will be very different. And when you think about it, it’s totally normal. The novels are much larger and more complex than the series. Some of the events depicted in an HBO production will not happen in the books, and vice versa.”
Still a prequel version released before the end of the saga

Martin, however, wanted to point out that the presence of Survived or surrendered The series airing on HBO in no way guarantees a character that the same fate will be booked for him in the books, but that was to be expected.
Given that Martin himself does not know how the saga will end, and that he responds in the same way to an annoying tendency (by his own admission) to change course once a narrative arc begins to take shape, so it’s hard to know when exactly Winter winds He will come to an end, not to mention his appearance.
