Sigh…George R.R. Martin’s collaborators trace at August announcement (UPDATE: Nope)


First of all, I’m sorry contained contained all via the occasion you is extra extra extra inclined to be exhausted by hints that we might shortly get particulars about The Winds of Winter, the long-awaited sixth e e-book in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire assortment. Lord is conscious of there have been ample of these over the sooner…[checks watch]…eight years, and none of them have come to 1 draw as shortly as extra. Haven’t we been harm ample?

Probably not. And there are tremors rumbling via the web. If your coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary coronary heart can take it, evaluation on to get the lowdown.

Alright, so beginning on Thursday, George R.R. Martin is kicking off a three-week tour of the British Isles, giving talks and signing books all via. The compulsory occasion, or so we rely on, is Worldcon, a science fiction conference kicking off in Dublin, Ireland on August 15.

Now, Martin has been going to Worldcon for years and years — even when he was cloistering himself off and attempting to complete The Winds of Winter, he nonetheless made an exception to go to this categorical occasion. So him going to Worldcon isn’t pretty. What is solely a bit absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely fully completely totally different is the prolonged nature of the journey — he’s not merely going to Worldcon, nonetheless together with Titancon in Belfast, which begins on August 22. On August 17 he’s internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet internet web internet web internet hosting a screening of Forbidden Planet for the Irish Film Institute. He’s doing a lot, elevated than he has since…exactly, since 2011 when he launched that A Dance With Dragons was achieved.

So all that’s ample to on the very least elevate our eyebrows. And then…and THEN…Elio M. García Jr. and Linda Antonsson submit this:

If you’re unfamiliar, Elio and Linda run Westeros.org, the oldest group devoted to A Song of Ice and Fire and Game of Thrones on the web. Elio and Linda have furthermore labored instantly with Martin on The World of Ice & Fire, a companion e e-book that explores the far-off corners of his imagined world. So they’re extra tapped in to his comings and goings than most.

And NOW they’re fairly blatantly hinting that there’s going to be an announcement referring to The Winds of Winter on August 21, contained contained all via the midst of Martin’s tour. “Something carried on the winds…of winter?” Oh, they know what they’re doing. They KNOW.

Dare we hope to dream? Is an announcement that The Winds of Winter is full lastly upon us? It’s undoubtedly been extended ample. But we’ve been acceptable associated related associated acceptable acceptable associated associated acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated related related associated related related associated related related associated related related correct acceptable related correct acceptable related correct related related correct related related correct acceptable related correct applicable right correct proper right here earlier to. Are we setting ourselves up for a fall? WE’VE BEEN HURT TOO MANY TIMES!

Regardless, we’ll be sustaining a tally of factors. Go delicate on our eyes, George.

UPDATE: Okay, so @westeros.org adopted up and confirmed that the distinctive tweet had nothing to do with The Winds of Winter:

Foiled as shortly as extra, one absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely fully completely totally different day, one absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely absolutely fully completely totally different lack of present e e-book. Why, you is extra liable to be asking, if this announcement had nothing to do with The Winds of Winter, was the tweet phrased thought-about one among many largest methods by which whereby it was?

So acceptable associated related associated acceptable acceptable associated associated acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable acceptable associated acceptable acceptable associated related related associated related related associated related related associated related related correct acceptable related correct acceptable related correct related related correct related related correct acceptable related correct applicable right correct proper right here we’re, hopes raised and dashed as shortly as extra. And the wheel retains on turning.
