George R. R. Martin has released a teaser excerpt from The Winds of Winter
For those of us who are very patiently (I do say that with sarcasm) waiting for The Winds of Winter to finally come out. I know, I have not been waiting as long as some people have. While there is no release date for The Wind of Winter as of yet, I know many of us wonder if there will ever be one. George R. R. Martin has given us an excerpt from a Tyrion chapter to help tide us over.
“Somewhere off in the far distance, a dying man was screaming for his mother. ‘To horse!’ a man was yelling in Ghiscari, in the next camp to the north of the Second Sons. ‘To horse! To horse!’ High and shrill, his voice carried a long way in the morning air, far beyond his own encampment. Tyrion knew just enough Ghiscari to understand the words, but the fear in his voice would have been plain in any tongue. I know how he feels.“
We can expect an update from The Winds of Winter soon, which will include a few new characters and location descriptions. It will also include more from Tyrion’s chapter.
George R. R. Martin has acknowledged that the show is getting done a lot quicker then he is writing the remaining 2 books. He might need to spend a bit more time writing. On the plus side George R. R. Martin did tell the creators of the Game of Thrones TV Show how he planned to end it. At least we know that they can continue the story.
Until then, we are just going to have to enjoy the few teaser chapters that we get. At least we will have season 4 of Game of Thrones to help tide us over.
