Far as I know, no one knows the date of the next two books...

It took him like 11 years to publish the last three so I wouldn't hold my breath.

I've heard spring. I mean he already has released a couple of chapters already so I would assume he's closer to being done then we think

i'd be surprised if affc and adwd isn't split into 2 seasons each, giving him another 4 years to finish

 

Recent reports on the books front are that:

 

1.he's getting pissy with people asking him when TWOW is going to be done...

2. any dates you're reading are speculative until it comes from his website

3. hodor

4. he's been pretty clear that the show is the show and the books are the books... some people that have died in the show will likely die (or not) differently in the books

 

The show front, people aren't exactly sure. AFFC and ADWD events are parallel on the timeline. They happen at the same time. He just couldn't fit everyone's viewpoints into one book of reasonable size. Therefore, with some of the show castings (especially for Bran's line) it is a pretty solid bet that they'll be delving into ADWD quite a bit this season.

That would mean that the show will almost certainly pass the show in some POV storylines.

There hasn't been much in the news about any Greyjoy castings, so some of that might be pushed to season 5, but at some point it definitely appears that the show is going to take the lead. I'm hoping they've cast the Greyjoy uncles but just kept it under tight wraps.

"It is great that so many people are eager for the next book and certainly these are the people who are paying my bills and allowing me to have a house across the street from my other house," Martin admits to the Sydney Morning Herald. "But at the same time, sometimes I just wish they would stop pressuring me about it. It will be done when it's done. I'm working on it. I don't know what else I can say: I'm a slow writer, I've always been a slow writer, and these are gigantic books."

 

 

 

trolololol

 

but then

 

At least he acknowledges that he needs to be writing faster now. "As the show comes closer and closer, I need to go faster and faster," Martin admits. "I have told them ["Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss] some of where I am going, so I think they know the ultimate destination, but I have to not allow them to catch me."

and there's been a few chapters released/read in public already from TWOW as mentioned above...

 

Arianne Martell http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/

 

Theon http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/sample-chapter-from-winds-of-winter.207815997/

 

Barristan Selmy (not the actual texts, but summary) http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/81338-twow-spoilers-barristan/#entry4122024

 

very rough overview of some reading of a Victarion/Tyrion chapter and some notes about Brienne's word http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/67929-twow-spoilers-miscon-reading-two-winds-of-winter-chapters/

 

I think there has been another Arianne chapter somewhere and another Tyrion chapter... but I'm not having much luck...

If he releases Winds of Winter this coming spring I'll just poop everywhere out of shock.

 

I have to imagine that for the show, they'll combine AFFC and DWD and divide it into two seasons. They happen at the same time chronologically. If there was one whole season to AFFC (or two, oh dear God please not two) people would die of boredom and would cry about no Dany/Jon Snow.

So, if you don't keep up with South Park anymore, they've decided to tackle a little bit of GoT theme. The past two episodes have been loosely based on GoT stuff, and they even did a GRRM spoof in last nights episode.

It isn't all that funny of a show anymore, and they're trying to poke a little fun at the sexual nature of the ASOIAF stuff, but I just thought it was another drop in the bucket of how much of popular culture has been infected with GoT. It isn't a bad thing, IMHO.

I think next week will be the final episode of the GoT spoof series.

I thought there was a bit of irony in last night's GRRM spot. Basically, GRRM called in the idea of delaying black Friday until Dec. 6th (an underhanded smack at him for delaying books and stuff I suppose). It is ironic though because Matt and Trey had an issue getting an episode in on time earlier this season and had to show a rerun that week.

 

Anyways, sorry to put this here, but I suppose it does relate to the world of GoT stuff.

I hope they don't stretch books 4 & 5 too much. They are both good for sure but drag more than the first three books.

Hopefully they can do both books in only two seasons

They wrapped S4 filming yesterday or the day before...

Lots of people speculating that they are pushing all the Greyjoy stuff to S5... I think based solely on lack of casting news on that front...

I don't know how to take that, as I was anticipating more Kraken in the upcoming season... I'm sure they'll do fine with what they are doing, though...

I have watched the last 2 seasons in about 2 weeks with the last episode of S3 to go. All I can say is Wow!. This has to be the best show on TV right now and probably since the 2nd season of The Sopranos. I'm so glad I didn't have to wait and could watch the last 19 episodes in row.
