Random people on the Web not only can do better, but do!

No links please. I'm doing my own version (for fun only, of course).

I've been putting the links in the Rant thread, the one with all that weird stuff about cucumbers and pets and whatnot.

I am stunned. The end of the show would have been the perfect time to announce a release date for TWOW . . .  or maybe not, given how poorly the final season was received. My only explanation for the delay is George is having to tailor the original plot line to fit the show - or at least not diverge too violently. But how do you call back the fact that in ADWD Brienne was leading Jaime off to Stoneheart to be executed (in all likelihood) while D&D have Jaime going to Dorne with Bronn? Even a great writer can't make sense of that mess.

eta: what has the show's poor final season done to potential book sales? Maybe the publisher just wants to give people a year to forget?

I hope to God he doesn't change the books to match the show. I'm guessing he won't, though.

The Rant thread name is kind of weird; but hey.

I think if the book is very different from the show it will have great sales. The problem is if it is similar... Then I think the interest in asoiaf will diminish a lot... Like A LOT!

I think he should worry if people feel burned because they think the book is going the same way as the show... I Don t think people will want to read a story that they know they hate the end.

Even if he delivers the ending in a much better way the fact is that the show already made people hate that ending... People are already prejudiced against it...

I hope you're right. I'd have felt a lot better about things if the book had come out before season 7 - or at least before s.8. As it is I have no faith that the show & D&D won't have influence on what Martin writes.

OMG! I have to link this somewhere, and I think it's already in the Rant thread.

Now to see if she's done part II!
