Introduction

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular book series of all time. The series, written by George R.R. Martin, has captivated readers since it first came out in 1996.

With the success of the TV adaptation, starring Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, interest in the books has only grown. So when is the next book coming out?

Unfortunately, fans have been waiting for The Winds of Winter for almost a decade now. George R.R. Martin has said that the book is close to finished, but he hasn’t given a release date yet.

There is another book in the series that has been finished, however. A Song of Ice and Fire: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms was released in 2015 and is a collection of three novellas that take place before the events of The Game of Thrones.

Theories on the next book’s release date

While there is no set release date for the next “Game of Thrones” book, there are plenty of theories out there as to when fans can expect it. The most popular theory seems to be that the book will come out in 2020, either in the spring or summer. This is based on comments made by both author George R.R. Martin and his publisher. Another theory is that the book will come out in 2021, which would mark 10 years since the last book in the series was released. However, this seems less likely, as Martin has said he is not aiming for a 10-year gap between books.

George R. R. Martin’s writing process

No one knows when the next “Game of Thrones” book will be released, not even its author George R. R. Martin. The highly-anticipated sixth book in the fantasy series, “The Winds of Winter,” has been in the works for years, with no end in sight.

Martin is notoriously slow at writing and publishing his books, with an average release rate of one per decade. Though he’s been working on “The Winds of Winter” for several years now, it’s still unclear when it will be finished and ready for publication.

This is reality for fans of the “Game of Thrones” series: a long wait for the next book, with no guarantee that it will ever come out.

The Winds of Winter sample chapters

George R.R. Martin has released several sample chapters from The Winds of Winter, the long-awaited sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. The most recent chapter, titled ” Mercy ,” was released in May 2016.

While there is no set release date for The Winds of Winter, Martin has said that he hopes to have the book out before the seventh and final season of Game of Thrones airs on HBO. Season 7 is scheduled to debut in the summer of 2017.

A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons

George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series, which Game of Thrones is based on, is currently made up of five published books. The most recent, A Dance with Dragons, was released in 2011.

The next book in the series is expected to be The Winds of Winter, though a release date has not been announced. After that, the seventh and final book will be A Dream of Spring.

The release schedule for The Winds of Winter

No one knows for sure when the next “Game of Thrones” book will be released. George R.R. Martin, the author of the series, has been notoriously tight-lipped about the release date for The Winds of Winter. However, there are some clues that we can use to make an educated guess about when the book might come out.

Martin has said in the past that he intends to finish the series in seven books. With that in mind, it stands to reason that he will want to release The Winds of Winter sooner rather than later so that he can move on to writing the seventh and final book. In addition, Martin has said that he wants each book in the series to be released approximately two years apart. Given that A Dance with Dragons was published in 2011, it is possible that The Winds of Winter could be released in 2013 or 2014.

Of course, all of this is mere speculation. Only George R.R. Martin knows when The Winds of Winter will be released. We will just have to wait patiently until he is ready to share his work with the world.

Why the next book has taken so long

It has been almost seven years since the last “Game of Thrones” book was published, and fans are impatiently waiting for the next installment. Here’s a look at why it has taken so long for the next book to be published.

George R.R. Martin, the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series on which “Game of Thrones” is based, has said that he is taking his time with the sixth book, “The Winds of Winter,” because he wants it to be perfect.

“I want to finish it on my own terms, at my own pace, and when I think it’s ready, not when somebody else thinks it’s ready or when the financial pressure of another year without a new book becomes too great,” Martin told Entertainment Weekly in 2016.

In addition to taking his time on “The Winds of Winter,” Martin has also been working on other projects, including a TV series based on his 1980 novella “Nightflyers.” He is also working on two other shows for HBO: an adaptation of his 1982 sci-fi novel “Wild Cards,” and an untitled drama set in feudal Japan.

Martin has said that he is confident that he will finish “The Winds of Winter” before the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” airs in 2019. However, there is no word on when the seventh book in the series, “A Dream of Spring,” will be published.

When can we expect the next book?

It’s been over six years since the last book in George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series was released, and fans are more than ready for the next installment. So when can we expect the next book?

Unfortunately, it’s hard to say. Martin has been notoriously tight-lipped about his progress on “The Winds of Winter,” the sixth book in the series. In a blog post from January of this year, he said only that he was “still working on it, I’m afraid.”

Given that it took him six years to write the last book, “A Dance with Dragons,” it’s not unreasonable to expect that we might have to wait a while longer for “The Winds of Winter.” But there is some hope that we might see it sooner rather than later. In an interview with 60 Minutes in 2015, Martin said he was hoping to have the book out before the next season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” adaptation, which is set to premiere in 2019.

Of course, given that we’re already halfway through 2018 and there’s no sign of the book yet, it seems unlikely that Martin will be able to make good on his promise. But hope springs eternal for “Game of Thrones” fans, and we’ll continue to keep our eyes peeled for any news about when we can expect the next installment in this hugely popular series.

Conclusion

We know that the next Game of Thrones book is called “The Winds of Winter,” and that it’s going to be released sometime in the next few years. But when, exactly?

Unfortunately, we don’t have a definitive answer to that question. George R.R. Martin, the author of the Song of Ice and Fire books (on which Game of Thrones is based), has been working on The Winds of Winter for several years now, and he hasn’t given us a firm release date yet.

That said, there are some clues that we can use to try and narrow down the release window for The Winds of Winter. For instance, Martin has said in the past that he doesn’t like to release a new book more than five or six years after the previous one, so we know it’s unlikely that The Winds of Winter will come out more than six years after “A Dance With Dragons,” which was published in 2011. Additionally, Martin has indicated that he wants to release The Winds of Winter before the next season of Game of Thrones airs on HBO (the seventh season is scheduled to air in mid-2017), so it’s possible that we’ll see the book sometime in late 2016 or early 2017.

Of course, all of this is just speculation at this point; we’ll just have to wait for George R.R. Martin to tell us when The Winds of Winter will be ready.

What to do while we wait for the next book

“The Winds of Winter” is the highly anticipated sixth novel in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R.R. Martin. The last book, “A Dance with Dragons,” was released in 2011, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next installment ever since.

While we wait for Martin to finish writing (and, perhaps, for HBO to catch up with him), there are plenty of ways to stay busy and entertained. Here are a few suggestions:

-Read the books that have already been released. This is an obvious one, but it’s worth mentioning. “A Game of Thrones,” the first book in the series, was published in 1996, and there are five books total. If you haven’t read them yet, now is a great time to start!

-Watch the television show. Even if you’ve read the books, the TV show is definitely worth watching. It’s one of the most popular shows on television for a reason! Plus, it will help to pass the time until the next book comes out.

-Play the video game. If you’re looking for a way to experience “Game of Thrones” without having to read or watch it, you can always try playing one of the many video games that have been made based on the series. There are games for just about every gaming system out there, so you’re sure to find one that suits your needs.

-Listen to the audiobooks. This is a great option if you don’t have time to sit down and read an entire book but still want to experience Martin’s world in some way. The audiobooks are well-done and very immersive, so they’re definitely worth checking out!

-Visit Westeros in real life! Okay, so this one might not be possible for everyone… but if you happen to live in Northern Ireland or Iceland (or any other place where parts of “Game of Thrones” were filmed), why not go and check out some of the filming locations in person? It’s a great way to get even more immersed in the world of Westeros… and who knows, maybe you’ll even spot a Direwolf or two!
