Game of Thrones fans react to next book being delayed
26 April, 2018, 00:26 | Author: Conrad Doyle
A new book from Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is coming before 2018 closes out, and it's not The Winds of Winter like some may have hoped. Readers have been eagerly anticipating "The Winds of Winter", the sixth in the series, for years - Martin has yet to finish the novel, which will be the first new book in the series since "A Dance With Dragons" was published in 2011.
Martin's publisher Bantam announced Wednesday that a new book called Fire & Blood will be released on November 20, just in time for the holiday season. "The Winds of Winter" is that next projected volume which Martin now says "you're going to have to keep waiting for".
In his Wednesday announcement, Martin did offer fans a consolation prize.
U.S. exporting more oil, but that could change
If oil and fuel prices continue rising, the political pushback from consumer countries against OPEC will only intensify. That said, if President Trump really does want to lower oil prices, there are a number of actions he could take.
"As most of you know, HBO is presently developing a number of different prequels to 'GAME OF THRONES.' I know I am going to be asked whether those shows are going to be based on material from 'FIRE & BLOOD.' It's a logical question". His blog post even acts as though Archmaester Gyldayn is a real person, which, hey, Martin's written a lot of books, we probably shouldn't be concerned about this. Instead, the author is referring to it as an "imaginary history", after receiving backlash from fans in the past over his term "fake history" when he previously referred to The Princess and The Queen and Sons of the Dragon. I love reading popular histories myself, and that's what I was aiming for here...
The good: George R.R. Martin has finished Fire and Blood, which covers the "monumental history" of the Targaryen family. Likewise, fans of the HBO series who want to start speculating about the Game of Thronesprequel TV shows in the works are sure to dive into the book looking for clues as to what may be used in the new shows.
The book will feature 75 black & white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley, Martin writes.
None of these developments is likely to affect the final season of Game of Thrones, which is now filming and slated to return in 2019.
Here's to 2019, which is also when Game of Thrones returns.
