    What to ask GRRM?

    You could ask what will be the title of the second volume of Fire & Blood. I originally thought that the books will be named "Fire & Blood: Volume One" and "Volume Two". But the first book seems to be just "Fire & Blood" without volume number. Maybe the second book will have a completely new title? Martin said yesterday in Not a Blog:

    Formula One 2018

    I would say that this has been Kimi's best season since his return to Ferrari was announced in 2013. He is now third in the Championship points. In my opinion Alonso has been a pale shadow of his former self for a couple of years. It's a good thing that he is finally leaving Formula One.

    The books coming out in 2019

    Here is the blurb for Stephenson's Fall, or Dodge in Hell: https://www.amazon.com/Fall-Dodge-Hell-Neal-Stephenson/dp/006245871X/ The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon returns with a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller—Paradise Lost by way of Phillip K. Dick—that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds. In his youth, Richard “Dodge” Forthrast founded Corporation 9592, a gaming company that made him a multibillionaire. Now in his middle years, Dodge appreciates his comfortable, unencumbered life, managing his myriad business interests, and spending time with his beloved niece Zula and her young daughter, Sophia. One beautiful autumn day, while he undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. Long ago, when a much younger Dodge drew up his will, he directed that his body be given to a cryonics company now owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd. Legally bound to follow the directive despite their misgivings, Dodge’s family has his brain scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud, until it can eventually be revived. In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on. It is an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife—the Bitworld—is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls. But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem... Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age. 880 pages in hardcover. Mike Shackle's debut novel We Are the Dead (Book One of The Last War Trilogy) will be published by Gollancz in July 2019: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Are-Dead-Last-War-Trilogy/dp/1473225205/ The war is over. The bad guys won. Now it's time to fight back. For generations, the people of Jia - a land where magic has long since faded from the world, clinging on in only a few rare individuals - have been protected from the northern Egril hordes by their warrior caste, but their enemy has not been idle. They have rediscovered magic and use it to launch an overwhelming surprise attack. An invasion has begun. And in moments, the war is over. Resistance is quashed. Kings and city leaders are barricaded in their homes awaiting banishment and execution, the warriors are massacred, and a helpless people submit to the brutality of Egril rule. Jia's heroes have failed it. They are all gone. And yet... there is still hope. Soon the fate of the kingdom will fall into the hands of a schoolboy terrorist, a crippled Shulka warrior and his wheelchair bound son, a single mother desperate enough to do anything she can to protect her baby... and Tinnstra, disgraced daughter of the Shulka's greatest leader, who now lies dead by Egril hands. A brand new epic fantasy: gritty and modern featuring a unique ensemble of characters who will lead a revolution against their overlords. PERFECT FOR readers of Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson, and Peter V. Brett David Wragg's debut novel Articles of Faith will be published by HarperVoyager in August 2019: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Articles-Faith-Book/dp/0008331413/ Vedren Chel holds every oath of service sacred – except his own. His late father’s sermons on the nobility of sworn duty left him ill-prepared for the grind of service to his indolent step-uncle. Chel’s wretched oath has dragged him from home and family across a war-splintered kingdom; he craves an escape from obligation. When foreign invaders heave into port and threaten obliteration, Chel finds opportunity in the chaos – a bargain with a stranded prince. Escort the prince to safety, and in return: release from his oath, a chance to go home. A solemn duty at last. But a bargain with a prince is never a simple thing. Greater forces are at play than Chel realises, and heavy wheels are turning. Assassins and mercenaries lurk in every shadow, many bearing smiles as sharp as their knives. Chel must brave ambush and betrayal, treasonous schemes and lethal terrain – and keep his prince alive. As the conspiracy at the kingdom’s dark heart turns its gaze towards him, Chel must decide just how much he will sacrifice in duty’s name.
