The Winds of Winter is the forthcoming sixth novel in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

The previous installment, A Dance with Dragons, covered less story than Martin intended, omitting at least one planned large battle sequence and leaving several character threads ending in cliffhangers. Martin intends to resolve these cliffhangers "ve...more

I would like to interject on all the people complaining about George R.R. Martin's writing process on this "review" of mine...

I would like to clarify that my "review" was not made in the spirit of complaining about Mr. Martin, but rather just a comment that I am not going to sit around and stress (and/or complain) about when it is going to come out. I have enjoyed what he has written thus far. I will be excited to read this book when it comes...more

I just finished A Dance with Dragons. It is the hour of the wolf and I can't sleep. The end of this book is absoultely amazing, and leaves me with the absurd need of hugging you and slapping you at the same time, George Really Ruthless Martin.
You are my many-faced God.

EDIT: November 9th. 2012.

Finished A Dance With Dragons last night.


Three more years till I can even start anticipating the next one.

George R. R. Martin, please write like the wind.

Check out Nymeria's comment below, "Write like the Wind". LMAO.


"Expected publication 2015"?

Words are wind, Ser George, words are wind.

I have this plan that when this comes out in 2015 I'm going to drop my child (by then, age 4) off at grandma and grandpa's house, get myself a hotel room, and do nothing but read this for 3 days straight.

2015 ???!!! Are you kidding me ?

At this rate the timing of the last book A Dream of Spring coming out may perhaps be beaten by a freaking apocalypse already

this needs patience... lots of it and not to mention booze to keep the fandom going

But I don't know if that will help this book come any faster...!
I don't exactly know how Jon Snow will be faring--six or so years after receiving those nasty stab wounds..

So you better hurry up and release the next two books, else we all die of the greyscale plague of impatience!!!

Reek.. Reek..
It rhymes with.. HURRY THE F@#k UP!!!

That is all.

It took a nearly fatal run-in with a van for Stephen King to finally guide "The Dark Tower" series to its decades-awaited conclusion. What kind of violent sign from the universe will it take to nudge George R. R. Martin toward the "Song of Ice and Fire" finish line?

Do you think that it would harm George R.R. Martin's creative process if we forcibly locked him in a plastic bubble to keep him healthy and germ free until books 6 and 7 are complete?
After Roger Zelazny and Robert Jordan, my prediction is that GRRM will write book 6, get halfway through book 7 and then come down with some rare, instantaneously fatal disease that leaves us all once again lost and forlorn and unsatisfied. It seems to be a pattern. From now on, any author who writes a series longer than 3 books I'm going to request their medical records before I read the books.

Still, looking forward to the next installment even if I AM chewing my nails to the quick over the nex...more

Oh, book #6, I see your expected publication date and I laugh. I drink whisky and I laugh and laugh and laugh.

I hope that this book will be better than the previous one (Dance with Dragons)... something like "A storm of Swords".

Dear Ser George R.R. Martin of Santa Fe,

Please take as long as you need to finish this book and start on the next one. Medical science is making advances every day in curing disease and prolonging life. Make this this installment of ASOIAF the best yet. Because if you rush through and it sucks, I will be heading up the line to make sure you spend an eternity in each of the Seven Hells and then I'll let the Hound deal with whatever is left of you. Or maybe I'll just let you room with Joffrey at t...more

GRRM, please finish the 6th and 7th book and please be always healthy. Just like what I told my friends on Facebook, I'll pray to the old gods and the new that you'll finish them... quickly.

George R.R. Martin better write this thing quick. After waiting 6 years for "A Dance with Dragons," and then it ending on such a huge cliffhanger; I don't think we fans can take the emotional tole of waiting till 2015 to read "Winds of Winter."

All I can say is GRRM is not a young man. It would also appear that he does not watch his diet all that well. All I can say is if he doesn't finish this series before he dies I'm going to be mad as hell! Quit going to all the Medieval Fairs put down those damn Turkey legs and get these books finished. We are waiting Mr. Martin.....

I am confused about the blurb. Since when?! Is this accidentally the summary for #7 or did I seriously miss something?
