Yep. I wouldn't be surprised if the TV series finishes the series before the books do.



That would be a shame

My body is ready for him to finish the series for frick's sake. Worry about stuff like this after you finish the story George.

HBO will definitely pass him up. I'm optimistic that TWoW will be out no later than 2015, and seeing that season 6 will be in 2016....But yeah, if they're going to divide books 6 and 7 into 3 seasons (seasons 6, 7, and 8), and not start ADoS material until season 7 (2017)....no fricking way in hell that Martin has ADoS out by 2017. Unless he starts popping out books every 2 years like he was able to do for books 1-3. But he watches so much football and travels all the time going to nerd conventions that I doubt he'll have it done. He can whine and bitch at HBO all he wants, because he brought it upon himself/he's at his own fault for it.



The only possible way HBO doesn't finish the series first is that they decide to wait and buffer it with Robert's Rebellion somewhere in the middle.

I think he spends so much time thinking about what kind of food combinations to go on a tangent about when writing...and that's why it takes 5 years/book.

I'm sure it will mention The Others a little bit and then say nothing the frick else about them




He's actually used the D&E stories as a major info dump for the main series. Hopefully, not having to find ways to work the backstory into the main narrative will streamline the process but we'll see.

So 'lay the tracks' means that Fat Man plans to have book 6 out by late 2014?





Doubt it. Martin has already told Beinoff and Weiss who ends up on the Iron Throne at the end of the series so they know what general direction to take the show without having the books as source material or taking any further advice/direction from Martin.




I'm definitely taking "lay the tracks" as fleshing out an outline for HBO to move forward if necessary.

Meh, my grandpa was obese and smoked cigars and lived to be 76. So I do have some hope to see book 6

Looks like ol George drew inspiration from Chataya's and Alayaya from real life experience.

Wow. Just write the fricking books George

Wouldnt it be awesome if HBO finishes the series before the 7th book comes out, and GRRM just fricks over HBO and does the books completely diff and way better than the show?? GRRM going out with a bang.

Oh and by the way, Dunk and Egg series were pretty awesome. If your a book reader and havent read them, you need to.

I thought he has already given HBO the outline of the rest of the series? It would still suck if they finish it before the books though.

It's not HBO's fault that George is a lazy ass, nor do I think they should take a 5 year break just so he can finish.

Releases tomorrow.

This novella is going to be like a small glass of water 100 miles into a 1,000 mile trek across the desert.
