Why GRRM doesn't replace the current sample chapter with an older one?

Recommended Posts

I think the spoiler chapters will remain as is. They are published now so it's not ideal to go back and revise, although there is some wriggle-room as they are not yet in print. I don't think we'll be getting anything else before the publication of TWoW because GRRM will be getting into major spoiler territory if he goes any further with any pov.

Jon (ghost) and Mel - too revealing about Jon's death or potential resurrection.

Jaime and Brienne - next chapter is big with the Lady Stoneheart situation.

Theon and Asha - Battle of Ice and whatever follows.

Damphair  and Sam - Something big in Oldtown.

Arianne and Jon Connington - Something big with Aegon at Storm's End.

Mereen crew - conclusion to the Battle of Fire.

Dany - big moment with the Dothraki.

Cersei - pending trial.

Arya - maybe some room for another chapter but I suspect she'll be sailing for Westeros soon and that'll be a big moment.

Sansa - big event in the Vale (and potential abduction).

Bran - potential weirwood reveals.

Areo - confronting Darkstar.

Davos - Rickon on Skagos.

Probably forgot some pov character but these type of moments are what sell the books and you don't want to give too much of that away.

I think at this point GRRM should just post that Asha I chapter from TWoW because by rights, it should have been included in ADwD along with Theon I. Without those two chapters, the whole northern story of ADwD is missing an essential part.

It's been over three years since GRRM posted Arianne II. Why don't we see edited/updated versions of any of the previous sample chapters? 

I think you're overestimating the amount of effort he's willing to put into the TWOW business.

It will be interesting to see if he has significantly changed any of the preview chapters once winds is released.

It was absolute HELL trying to find a good rendering of The Forsaken.  He should just post the one he read.   What could it hurt?
