A new George RR Martin book planned - but not THAT book

George RR Martin Announces 'Game of Thrones' Book — But Not 'Winds of Winter'

George RR Martin Announces 'Game of Thrones' Book — But Not 'Winds of Winter'

George R.R. Martin's slow-coming A Song of Ice and Fire series - from which the hugely popular HBO series Game of Thrones is adapted - won't get its next linear book, The Winds of Winter, until at 2019, at the earliest. In the last season and a half, Game of Thrones has gone past Martin's published books and forged its own way, for better or worse. But Martin fans have gotten used to waiting. "You're going to have to keep waiting for THE WINDS OF WINTER". Fans hoping for the next book in the Song of Fire and Ice series - which the show is based on - to hold them over were dealt a gut-wrenching blow when the author, again stated that the book will be delayed.

Although it's not "The Winds of Winter", Martin's new book should help satiate fans who have been jonesing for a return to Westeros.

It does come with illustrations, and although the manuscript itself might be shorter than A Game of Thrones per Martin himself, it could be that Fire and Blood may rival it in size just because of all those illustrations. Instead, the author is referring to it as an "imaginary history", after receiving backlash from fans in the past over his term "fake history" when he previously referred to The Princess and The Queen and Sons of the Dragon. The essential point being the "history' part".

With that in mind, it's possible that Game of Thrones will be over before you even get a chance to see the next book of Martin's series on bookshelves.

Thunder try to avoid elimination against Jazz
But opposites attract and because Utah and Oklahoma hate each other like Kris Aquino and James Yap, we have a series to watch for. Within the course of the game against the feisty, flowing Jazz , there are inevitable tasks the team will encounter.

In his blog post, Martin describes the book as "hefty", but it's not quite as long as his other Ice and Fire novels. Martin said. "For those not up on your Westerosi history, that's Aegon I, Aenys, Maegor the Cruel, Jaehaerys I (the Conciliator), Viserys I, Aegon II (and Rhaenyra), and Aegon III (the regency)".

"The Winds of Winter" won't be blowing this winter or anytime soon.

None of these developments is likely to affect the final season of Game of Thrones, which is now filming and slated to return in 2019.

Game of Thrones Season 8 will air in 2019.
