We know everyone is eagerly waiting for the next installment of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, which is the basis for the HBO show Game of Thrones. But when is the book actually coming out?
Checkout this video:
The eagerly awaited sixteenth and final book in George R. R. Martin’s groundbreaking series, A Song of Ice and Fire, is not expected to be published before 2020.
The release date for The Winds of Winter has been delayed several times, with the last postponement announced in 2016. In a blog post, Martin explained that the book was “not done yet,” and that he was taking a break from writing to focus on producing the television adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones.
The author has since resumed work on The Winds of Winter, but has not given any indication of when the book might be finished. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in 2017, he said that he was “months away” from completing the manuscript, but did not give a more specific timeframe.
It is unclear why the release date for The Winds of Winter has been delayed so many times, but it is likely due to the fact that Martin is a notoriously slow writer. His previous novel in the series, A Dance with Dragons, was published six years after its predecessor, A Feast for Crows.
Fans of the series are impatiently waiting for The Winds of Winter to come out, but they will have to wait a little while longer. In the meantime, they can re-read the books or watch the television show to tide them over until the final installment in Martin’s beloved series is finally published.
The books so far
So far, there have been five books in the Song of Ice and Fire series, with the most recent, A Dance with Dragons, being released in 2011. The Winds of Winter, the sixth book in the series, has been repeatedly delayed and is now expected to be released in 2018. George R.R. Martin, the author of the series, has said that he plans for there to be seven books in total.
The next book
There is no release date for the next book in George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, which ended with the publication of “A Dance With Dragons” in 2011.
The wait for the sixth novel, “The Winds of Winter,” has been particularly long, as Martin took a break from the series to work on other projects, including the HBO adaptation of “Game of Thrones.”
In a recent interview with The Guardian, Martin said that he is still working on the book and hopes to have it done by the end of 2018. However, he cautioned that he has been saying that for years and has yet to meet his goal.
“I’ve been saying that since 1991,” Martin said. “We all want to see ‘The Winds of Winter.’ I’m working on it as fast as I can.”
The seventh and final book in the series, “A Dream of Spring,” does not have a release date either.
Why the wait?
The most recent book in the series, A Dance With Dragons, was published in 2011. That’s seven years ago. And, according to a recent interview with The Guardian, it doesn’t look like the wait for The Winds of Winter is going to be much shorter. So why the long delay?
When can we expect it?
George R.R. Martin has been frustratingly tight-lipped about when the next book in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series will come out. The last book, “A Dance with Dragons,” was published in 2011, and fans have been clamoring for the sixth installment, “The Winds of Winter,” ever since. Here’s everything we know about the release date for “The Winds of Winter.”
Unfortunately, there is no set release date for “The Winds of Winter.” In a 2014 blog post, George R.R. Martin wrote that he was still working on the book and that it would be published “when it’s done.” In a 2016 interview with Entertainment Weekly, the author said he was hoping to have the book out before the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” began airing on HBO, but that didn’t happen.
Some fans are speculating that the release date for “The Winds of Winter” will be in 2018, since that’s when the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” is set to air. However, there is no confirmation from George R.R. Martin or his publishers that this is the case.
It’s also worth noting that George R.R. Martin has released books in his series on uneven intervals in the past. For example, there was a six-year gap between the publication of “A Storm of Swords” and “A Feast for Crows.” So even if we don’t get “The Winds of Winter” in 2018, it’s possible that it could be released sometime after that.
George R.R. Martin has said in the past that he doesn’t like to give readers false hope when it comes to the release date for his next book. So until we hear something concrete from the author or his publishers, it’s best not to get our hopes up too high for a 2018 release date for “The Winds of Winter.”
Will it be the last book?
The “Game of Thrones” book series is one of the most popular in recent years. The books are written by George R.R. Martin and have been adapted into a highly successful TV show on HBO.
The most recent book in the series, “A Dance with Dragons,” was published in 2011. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting the next installment.
However, there has been no word from Martin or his publisher on when the next book will be released. This has led to speculation that perhaps Martin is struggling to finish the series, or that he has decided to end it with the fifth book.
If you’re a fan of “Game of Thrones,” you’ll just have to keep waiting for news on the next book. In the meantime, you can enjoy re-watching the TV show or reading the existing books.
What will happen in the next book?
This is a difficult question to answer, as author George R.R. Martin has not yet finished writing the book. However, based on the events of the previous books and the television show, it is possible to make some predictions about what will happen in the next book.
Many fans believe that the next book will focus on the character of Jon Snow, who was killed at the end of the fifth book. However, it is also possible that the story will focus on another character, such as Daenerys Targaryen or Tyrion Lannister.
It is also likely that there will be a lot of action and violence in the next book, as there has been in all of the previous books. Additionally, there may be some surprises in store for readers, as Martin is known for his ability to surprise and shock his readers.
Theories about the next book
There is no set release date for the next book in the series, however there are many theories about when it will come out. Theories range from 2018 to 2020. Some believe that the release date will be related to the show’s air date, while others believe that it will be released when it is ready.
The TV show vs the books
“Game of Thrones” is one of the most popular TV shows in recent years, and has spawned a huge fan base. But the show is based on a book series, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” by George R. R. Martin. And since the show has caught up to where the books are, fans are wondering: when is the next “Game of Thrones” book coming out?
The answer is: we don’t know. George R. R. Martin has said that he is working on the next book in the series, “The Winds of Winter,” but he has not given any indication of when it will be finished or released. In the past, there have been long gaps between books in the series (the most recent one, “A Dance with Dragons,” was published in 2011, six years after its predecessor), so it’s possible that we could be waiting awhile for “The Winds of Winter.”
In the meantime, there are plenty of other ways for fans to get their “Game of Thrones” fix. There are a number of spin-off books focusing on different characters and time periods within the world of Westeros, as well as an officially licensed RPG and a recently released board game. And, of course, there are always re-runs of the TV show to watch!
George R.R. Martin has announced that the sixth book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, “The Winds of Winter,” will not be released in 2018. In a post on his personal blog, Martin wrote that he is still working on the book and that he does not want to rush it. He also said that he does not want to release it before it is ready, so fans will have to wait a little longer for the next instalment in the series.
