    Fans of the Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series will have to wait out the winter a little longer for Martin’s sixth installment, The Winds of Winter.

    Martin’s publisher, Jane Johnson, revealed the news on The Guardian this morning.

    However, before fans are left to be contented with just the HBO television adaptation, Johnson did divulge that three previously released prequel novellas will be hitting the shelves in October, re-released together with illustrations to accompany the text.

    The novellas are A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, The Hedge Knight, and The Sworn Sword and the Mystery Knight.

    Gary Gianni, known for his work with Dark Horse Comics, will render the images as black and white line drawings done in classic style.

    Johnson did not say when she expects The Winds of Winter to be completed.

    As far as WoW, I think George finished it a while ago and is waiting till they end of season 5 to release it.

    Love the show.

    Love the books.

    But this fat ass has spent the last couple of years cloaked in fanboys, getting drunk and telling everybody "George R. R. Martin is not your bitch."

    He needs to sit the fuck down and finish the stories he is contractually obligated to finish.

    I love these authors like Rowling and stuff that like to pretend they have a 10 book arc for how it is all gonna play out like Martin here. This guy is fucking free ball winging it, bottom line. He has no clue how this is gonna end, it is impossible.
    Wrap it up man

    Maybe the best outcome would be for GRRM to die, like, NOW and let someone else finish the series.
