First of all, I am sorry if you are tired by tips that we might quickly obtain information concerning The Winds of Winter, the long-awaited 6th publication in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and also Fire collection. Lord understands there have actually sufficed of those over the past…[checks watch]…8 years, and also none have actually concerned anything. Haven’t we been harmed sufficient?
Probably not. And there are shakes rolling with the web. If your heart can take it, keep reading to obtain the inside information.
Alright, so beginning on Thursday, George R.R. Martin is beginning a three-week scenic tour of the United Kingdom, offering talks and also authorizing publications everywhere. The centerpiece, approximately we believe, is Worldcon, a sci-fi convention beginning in Dublin, Ireland on August 15.
Now, Martin has actually been mosting likely to Worldcon for several years and also years — also when he was cloistering himself off and also attempting to complete The Winds of Winter, he still made an exemption to visit this specific occasion. So him mosting likely to Worldcon isn’t unexpected. What is a little bit various is the prolonged nature of the journey — he’s not simply mosting likely to Worldcon, yet additionally to Titancon in Belfast, which begins on August 22. On August 17 he’s holding a testing of Forbidden Planet for the Irish Film Institute. He’s doing a whole lot, greater than he has considering that…well, considering that 2011 when he revealed that A Dance With Dragons was ended up.
So all this suffices to a minimum of increase our brows. And after that…and afterwards…Elio M. García Jr. and also Linda Antonsson message this:
If you’re strange, Elio and also Linda run Westeros.org, the earliest area committed to A Song of Ice and also Fire and also Game of Thrones on the web. Elio and also Linda have actually additionally functioned straight with Martin on The World of Ice & Fire, a friend publication that checks out the far-off edges of his envisioned globe. So they’re a lot more touched in to his upcomings and also goings than a lot of.
And CURRENTLY they’re rather coldly hinting that there’s mosting likely to be a news pertaining to The Winds of Winter on August 21, in the center of Martin’s UK scenic tour. “Something carried on the winds…of winter?” Oh, they understand what they’re doing. They KNOW.
Dare we intend to fantasize? Is a news that The Winds of Winter is full ultimately upon us? It’s absolutely been long sufficient. But we’ve been below prior to. Are we establishing ourselves up for an autumn? WE’VE BEEN PAIN A Lot Of TIMES!
Regardless, we’ll be watching on points. Go mild on our eyes, George.
UPDATE: Okay, so @westeros.org complied with up and also verified that the initial tweet had absolutely nothing to do with The Winds of Winter:
Foiled once again, one more day, one more absence of brand-new publication. Why, you could be asking, if this news had absolutely nothing to do with The Winds of Winter, was the tweet phrased the method it was?
So below we are, really hopes elevated and also rushed once again. And the wheel keeps transforming.
