Chris  (haughtc) | 873 comments Just thought I'd add this thread for anyone interested in the sample chapters from The Winds of Winter that GRRM will occasionally post on his website.

This is a (view spoiler) POV chapter from the upcoming book: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/if-samp...

Please mark any comments for spoilers if revealing information about WoW in any responses. Thanks.

Such as mine, which says (view spoiler)


message 2: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 873 comments According to GRRM, there will be another preview chapter included in A Dance with Dragons when released in paperback this July.

Got that from the WoW entry on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wind...

Chris  (haughtc) | 873 comments GRRM has a nice interview where he talks about Season Two and Winds of Winter.

Remy Blas (RemyBlas) | 203 comments By the seven!! That's awesome. Thanks, Chris.

But who the hell is Mercy? Oh well, I guess I'll find out soon enough.


Eyehavenofilter  (Eyehavenofilter) | 310 comments I knew it was her.. All along... I knew it! I knew it!


message 10: by Paolo (new)

Paolo (ppiazzesi) | 15 comments There is also a new Tyrion chapter in the recent update for the World of Ice and Fire app. The app itself is free but the "content packs" you have to pay for, however you don't need to get these to read the preview chapter.

mark monday (happyendoftheworid) | 330 comments I can't help but fantasize that all of these new chapters could mean a release date of next year. maybe? please let it be so.

I just read the Tyrion chapter during lunch. Kicks ass! I want this book to come out now.

I didn't read the chapter yet, but I think there's only one white dragon alive: Viserion.


message 15: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments Wasn't he cream and gold?


message 16: by Chris (new)

Chris (Gvaz) | 1 comments Any place to read the other chapters? I am not at all interested in a summary.

Theon


message 21: by Silvana (last edited Apr 15, 2014 02:44AM) (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments There are some Barristan chapters too as well as one from Victarion, but they're read out loud by George in conventions or something.

Check this out, it has links to the summaries: http://vokpodcast.wordpress.com/2014/...

People say that as well, so I guess that's the case :)

Here's the Theon chapter http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/sam...


Eyehavenofilter  (Eyehavenofilter) | 310 comments This whole thread is " cream and G O L D ! "


message 26: by Thomas (new)

Thomas Vetter | 1 comments The chapter clearly says that Tyrion PICKS UP the white dragon. He can do so because it's a piece of the playing board and not the actual dragon that roams outside and kills the Yunkai soldiers...

message 31: by Britt (new)

Perfect thank you for finding this!!


message 36: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments your welcome. I highly recommend that blog for ASOIAF analysis :)


message 37: by Brandt (new)

Brandt Anderson When waiting for the next book in the series I go through phases of not thinking about the book, or maddeningly obsessing over it. The sample chapters help, but I'm starting to hit the obsessing phase. I'm almost to the point where I'm checking daily if a release date has been announced.


message 38: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments If you have not read the five prequel novellas or The World of Ice and Fire then I suggest you read those as well. If you have read them all, then do it like me, I 'cheated' on George and read other fantasy novels :D Found great new favorites already e.g. Joe Abercrombie.

The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens from Dangerous Women
and
The Rogue Prince, or, A King's Brother from Rogues

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015...

FUCK


message 43: by Chris , The Kingslayer (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 873 comments Yeah, I changed the "upcoming reads" date for the book on our home page to December 31, 2017.

That's as far out as it would go. Heh


message 44: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments I rather wait for two more years as long as it turns out awesome. And I need to reread Feast and Dance anyway. Already forgot most of things there too :p


message 45: by Imane (new)

Imane Nadif | 1 comments I just want it now, I feel like a spoiled kid in a candystore with no money. Aaaargh the anticipation is killing me...


message 46: by Amie (new)

Amie Pfeiffer (TheDrownedGoddess) | 247 comments Anyone read the new Alayne chapter yet?


message 47: by Pseudonymperson (new)

Pseudonymperson | 2 comments Amie wrote: "Anyone read the new Alayne chapter yet?"

Yeah, it's amazing. The best one yet, i think.


message 48: by Silvana (new)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 185 comments It is very light. Like reading The Vale High or something. I like it though. Sansa (and Arya) is becoming a master manipulator and indeed if she could be as smart as LF then she could end up becoming the ruler of the North, Riverlands and the Vale.


message 49: by Amie (new)

Amie Pfeiffer (TheDrownedGoddess) | 247 comments I just finished reading it and now I'm dying for more. Seriously, every sample chapter just turns me into a ravenous nerd craving dragons, knights, and Others. Oh my!


message 50: by Amie (new)

Amie Pfeiffer (TheDrownedGoddess) | 247 comments I have a question- in the end of the first Tyrion chapter, it reads, "Jorah Mormont himself interrupts with news of black sails in the bay flying dragon banners." Do we know what fleet this is?
It's been a few months, but I thought Slaver's Bay was filled with the Iron Fleet and the Yunkai'i.....
