GRRM is currently focusing on a Wild Cards book…

From his blog:

But not I am home again, facing the usual mountain of mail and email, and of course the monkeys on my back… those noisiest of them being HIGH STAKES, volume twenty-three in the Wild Cards series, and of course the Son of Kong, THE WINDS OF WINTER.

Obviously he says he is also working on The Winds of Winter, but it would be nice if it was his top priority.

GRRM to release “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” in October, 2015

This is very exciting on one hand, because I am a huge fan of Dunk and Egg, but on the other hand, it seems hard to imagine that The Winds of Winter will also be released at the same time, which is my current prediction.

Either way I look forward to owning all three of the Dunk and Egg stories in one place and with new illustrations.




Taking place nearly a century before the events of A Game of Thrones, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms compiles the first three official prequel novellas to George R. R. Martin’s ongoing masterwork, A Song of Ice and Fire. These never-before-collected adventures recount an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living consciousness.
List Price: $35.00 USD
New From: $23.01 USD In Stock
Used from: Out of Stock

This title will be released on October 6, 2015.

Telltale Games shows their Game of Thrones trailer

It’s interesting that this game is based on the HBO show rather than the books, and is focused on a narrow period of time between the most recent season, and the upcoming season this spring.

If you don’t think The World of Ice and Fire is a “real” GRRM book…

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HISTORY OF WESTEROS AND THE LANDS BEYOND • WITH HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF ALL-NEW MATERIAL FROM GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire.

This lavishly illustrated volume isa comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones. In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org—perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.

Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including
 
• full-color artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces
• full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen
• in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros
• 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book

The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin’s dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice & Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.


From the Hardcover edition.
Kindle Edition: Check Amazon for Pricing Digital Only
Release date October 28, 2014.
