Here’s my rub with that. You have to be a big enough writer to admit when you’ve written yourself into a corner you can’t get out of and need help. That’s what GRRM needs to do. It’s very apparent at this point he’s either waiting for the show to end so he can see the reaction/change shite OR he’s just stuck but too fricking unwilling to reach out for assistance. frick him for not doing that.

I have it on good authority that WOW will finally be released 6 months after the show's finale. You heard it here first.

Apparently Tubby is saying he’s now writing the fricker again. He says he’s got a good pace and wish Stoneheart were in the show, but I’m guessing by good pace he means 5 pages in 3 months: LINK

I’m trying to read Fire and Blood and it’s boring the frick out of me. All those names and places that you only see referenced several times then that’s it. You don’t give a shite about those characters and there’s no character development at all.

It’s TOO complex and TOO rich a history and that “history book” should have been written AFTER finishing the damn Ice and Fire series!

GRRM hasn’t finished Fire and Blood either.

I liked it. It was just nice reading names and locations I recognized. I know I'm feeding the beast, but I can't help myself.

Have you finished a book series with less depth and fewer characters?

I'm not arguing against the fact that he has indeed created a deep universe with a complex story, but that's not really a good defense when considering this is his "job" and he started the series 23 years ago, while it ballooned in size as it went.

I think the bottom line is the dude decided to cash in with tons of side books while the demand was hot.

This is now a ASOIAF Book Bunker thread. WTF did I just watch?



D&D said screw the Azor Ahai prophecy that has been mentioned multiple times in the show.

Something tells me that something of the magnitude of who kills the Night King would have come from GRRM himself. I know D&D has a lot of leeway in the storytelling, but I thought they had the big bullet points and were following them.

First, we have never heard the prophecy, just the Red Woman’s paraphrase. Second the Red woman says that Azor Ahai will lead the forces of light against the darkness, never says he will kill the Night King. Third, Arya doesn’t go to Winterfell if Hot Pie doesn’t tell her Jon is alive and King of the North. She’s on her way to Kings Landing. Just some thoughts.
