Things have been awfully silent when it comes to the news about Winds of Winter. George R. R Martin, who loves to share all the information that he can about the sixth novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, hasn’t come out with anything new recently.
According to News Everyday there are still no concrete plans for the release of Winds of Winter, even though the sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is going to be out next March. HBO has decided to go ahead with Game of Thrones Season 6 on their own, since there is no book to fall back upon.
Martin has severely delayed the process of releasing the sixth novel. The fifth novel, A Dance with Dragons was released in 2011 and since then fans had been waiting for the next novel to find out what happens next. The fans are now running out of patience and are pushing for George R. R. Martin to come out with Winds of Winter.
Parent Herald has come out with another speculation that the complete silence over the Winds of Winter situation from the Martin camp might also mean that the book is ready. The complete silence from the camp might be to increase the suspense and hype about Winds of Winter, before finally publishing it.
George R. R. Martin has come out with some spoilers from Winds of Winter to keep the fans happy. He has teased that there is a major twist in the book that will make the readers gasp in shock. This information has made many fans of the book talk about the fact that Martin is again going to kill one of the characters since he is very fond of that.
There is a lot suspense regarding Jon Snow. The fifth novel saw Jon Snow being betrayed by the brothers from the Night’s Watch who did not support his decision to go ahead and work with the Wildlings.
It was revealed at the Emmys that Jon Snow will survive in the book, however his fate in the television series looks bleak with the director informing the fans that Jon Snow will not survive the attack on him.
There is a new rumor that George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series will be made into a movie. The author, when asked by the Daily Star to share some more information on the news, said that there is going to be a movie, but he isn’t going to be a part of it.
Martin said that he isn’t going to be a part of the project since he has to work to complete the novel series and has two more novels to write and complete.
He is confident that DB Weiss and David Benioff are perfectly capable of handling the job on their own. Martin also added that he is under a lot of pressure to complete his books and being a slow writer, he isn’t being able to stick to the deadlines.
