This is like Steve Jobs saying he only made Apple for himself and was going to liquidate all the assets of his company once he dies, and frick everyone else. Yeah you can keep your old iPhones and computers, but none are coming down the line.

Sorry, but that's not good enough. I'm an investor, and I demand a finished product. Stop sucking this fat turd off and enabling him. In the least he should say he's hired a ghost writer in the event of his death.

If George RR Martin was anyone else save for Steven King and JKR, his publisher would have thrown him to the curb by now. This is not normal for a writer to write 3 books over 6 years, and then for all the next books all take the same amount of time to write as he did the previous 3. Who the frick does this? It's wrong to the fans. I don't think even George Lucas would do this shite.


He is creating literary works of art. Much work goes into them. Frank wrote Dune I, II, III all as one story and then broke them up. How long did it take him to write those? Alot of research went into those books.

George's first book in this series was what? 20 years ago? Now forget the show, suppose it never came out.

20 years later, which book is still read? The first one or John Grisham's The Firm? Does anyone even remember that masterpiece of formula writing.

In other words, there is a difference between formula writing and actual literature. A shame you can't tell the difference between the two.

Interesting theory on who might be carrying Dawn:

Checked YouTube and a video from GrayArea popped up in which she posts what is to me a very interesting theory (backed well but not conclusively by some footage) about a certain sword. And I think she may have something.

I'm not sure if this is technically spoilerish but if accurate it could foreshadow future developments pretty heavily - so PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK:

Her theory is that the sword Beric Dondarion has been carrying is, in fact, Dawn, the sword of Arthur Dayne. She backs it up with some shots of the sword - on Dondarion's saddle, being picked up by Thoros when he heard the Hound digging and then shoved into the ground when Thoros helped the Hound, etc. The shape of the pomell is pretty much an exact match for Dawn, though none of the shots show it clearly enough to see if the sunrise motif is on it.

I think it's a well thought out theory.

GrayArea vido with theory

And, yes, I know you all want to know about THE WINDS OF WINTER too. I've seen some truly weird reports about WOW on the internet of late, by 'journalists' who make their stories up out of whole cloth. I don't know which story is more absurd, the one that says the book is finished and I've been sitting on it for some nefarious reason, or the one that says I have no pages. Both 'reports' are equally false and equally moronic. I am still working on it, I am still months away (how many? good question), I still have good days and bad days, and that's all I care to say. Whether WINDS or the first volume of FIRE AND BLOOD will be the first to hit the bookstores is hard to say at this juncture, but I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018... and who knows, maybe two. A boy can dream...


He can kiss my ass. This is the kind of shit, "toying" with fans when we all know damn well WoW won't be the one coming out first is what makes me not be able to stand the guy.

Either write it or shut the frick up.

And he disabled comments for the post. fricking coward. So, this is pretty clear notification that we are not getting TWoW in 2017 and some possibility that we will not get it in 2018 either. frick that son of a bitch.

I am subscribing to the thought that he had tangled the story lines so much that he can't figure out how to bring them back together. Him disabling comments on his posts now tells us that he is obviously sensitive to the fans angry jabs, so that leads be to believe that he would rather not produce anything that try to half-assed throw it together and produce something overly shitty.

I can say with honesty that I have never hated someone as much as I hate him. Not even the guy who ran over my dog when I was a child, and frick that guy too.

Were those definition links part of your argument concerning whether Landshark was invested in Martin? Because if so, you only proved his point. It's the number 2 meaning of the word invest.

The example is literally "to invest large sums in books."

But that definition makes him an investor of the books not the author. Buying merchandise doesn't incentivize the author to write a page.

The producer has already put out the product, meaning by purchasing the product you are now a consumer. If you don't like the producer of the product, then don't buy the product. It's pretty simple.

I defended his big arse for reaping the benefits of ASoIaF after struggling in no-mans' land for much of his career...but to intentionally frick with his fans like this after waiting this long is just fricking childish.

Truth is, he blew it. Couldn't win a 5 year race. The show will finish it for me and I hope many, many others- I hope he has cases of twow left over and has to use them as fruitcakes at Christmas.

And Kneel Gayman, you can kiss my arse right in the crack.
fricking Hack.

The pommel may look the same but the crossguard is clearly different. In the preview for season 7 you can see it and its clearly straight and not curved toward the blade like dawn is.

Does anyone think it's possible Arya takes Jaime's face and kills Cersei? 2 valonqars with 1 stone

re: Crackpot ASOIAF Theories SPOILERS
No. First off in order to get Jaime's face, then Jaime has to be dead likely by Arya's hands. Secondly it's detrimental to Jaime and Cersei's character development. I would really like for Jaime to tell Cersei why he actually killed Aerys and then kill her once she realizes she has turned into Aerys.

I'm almost sure he has only told Brienne why he did it. I think Cersei would be a bit more sensitive around Wildfire for Jaime and Tyrion would have thought back to Jaime saving Kings Landing when they found the barrels of Wildfire throughout King's Landing.
