The Latest “A Song of Ice and Fire” Book Has Been Delayed… Again

It’s been a tough… while… for book fans of A Song of Ice and Fire, and it doesn’t appear as though that is going to change any time soon.

Loyalists to A Song of Ice and Fire have literally had to wait years between novels.

Five books of the best-selling series have already been released with another two expected.

The last book in the series, A Dance with Dragons, was released way back in 2011, resulting in producers of the television series having to veer ahead of the novels and in some cases take a very different turn for certain characters.

That trend is likely to continue as author George R. R. Martin has now confirmed that the wait will probably be as long Daenerys Targaryen’s pursuit of the Iron Throne…

The 69-year-old wrote on his blog: “Winds of Winter will not be released this year. No, winter is not coming… not in 2018, at least. You’re going to have to keep waiting for THE WINDS OF WINTER.”

At least we’ll have the books to curb our withdrawal from the TV series ending… when they eventually come out.
