• winds of winter.. soon

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Friday, July 09, 2021 22:16:00
    George RR Martin released an exerpt of the upcoming conclusion
    to the Song of Ice & Fire [Games of Thrones] series, The Winds
    of Winter.

    https://georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/

    I like the way he talks about what's coming:

    " At Guadalajara International Book Fair 2016, Martin gave some
    clues about the dark nature of The Winds of Winter: ... "I've
    been telling you for 20 years that winter was coming. Winter is
    the time when things die, and cold and ice and darkness fill
    the world, so this is not going to be the happy feel-good that
    people may be hoping for. Some of the characters [are] in very
    dark places. .... Things get worse before they get better, so
    things are getting worse for a lot of people. "

    To late man.

    I already lost interest in the series. He is taking so long to complete it that I am not going to
    bother with it.

    I am considering selling second hand the books I have. Thankfully I didn't even ge the full series.

    What about the prequel, Fire & Blood ?

    That sounds like a good backstory to the rise and fall of House
    Targaryen

    Apparently.. there is a Fire & Blood (Part TWO) planned as
    well. :(

    I am still trying to read the books I already have at home, which belong to series which have already been concluded.

    With so many books up there, it is not worth it to start reading a series that they may never finish, unless each story is self-concluding.

    I see the Fire & Blood (prequel to the Song of Ice and Fire) as
    a good backstory (the events that started everything) even
    though I may be unable to finish the main story-line until GRRM
    comes out with book 6 + 7. F&B is basically the imaginings of
    the Tragaryean family history ..and the dragons when they
    occupied the skies! That's kind of a good story on its own.
