New Sample Chapters

1 post in this topic

Over at his “Not a Blog”, George R.R. Martin has <a href=“”>reminded</a> fans that his official website, <a href=“”></a>, is alive and kicking… and if it hasn’t been as updated as it could be, well, he’s been busy. That said, there’s a significant update today as George shares two new sample chapters. The <a href=“”>first excerpt</a> is from the 23rd <em>Wild Cards</em> novel, <em>High Stakes</em>. The excerpt comes from Ian Tregillis, who wrote the excellent <em><a href=“”>Bitter Seeds</a></em> (a dark take on superheroes during WWII) and whose latest book <em><a href=“”>The Mechanical</a></em> has received rave reviews as the start of a new trilogy in a world where alchemy works and where automatons are nearly human.

The other excerpt, of course, is a <a href=“”>chapter</a> from <em>The Winds of Winter</em>. It’s one he’s read before, so there have been scattered reports, but he’s never posted it directly to his website. Here’s how George describes its contents:

“You want to know what the Sand Snakes, Prince Doran, Areo Hotah, Ellaria Sand, Darkstar, and the rest will be up to in WINDS OF WINTER? Quite a lot, actually. The sample will give you a taste. For the rest, you will need to wait.”

(Coincidentally, Linda and I have returned to doing <em>A Song of Ice and Fire</em> videos between episodes of <em>Game of Thrones</em>, and we just happened to have made our first video a question of the political situation in Dorne in the novels, including information from the two relevant chapters from <em>The Winds of Winter</em> that George released. We’ll embed that video below. Specific discussion relevant to <em>The Winds of Winter</em>, and this excerpt, starts at the <a href=“”>32 minute mark</a>)
