I won't stop calling him fat until he proves us wrong and releases the damn book in time. But I would be fucking pleased if I that happens.

Are you fucking kidding me?! What does that even mean if not that they know but won't tell.


 Clearly it means that Jon's mother is Taena Merrywhether!


 no you spoiled the big mystery of Jon's mother. Good R'hllor!

Wait... does this mean the book is now going to be published even earlier?!

Is it possible that he's just been trolling us the whole time since ADWD and he's actually been getting his arse in gear and writing more than seems possible while he's been jaunting around and all his little projects?

Seems hard to credit where he could find time really to have a final draft ready even by the end of next year, despite the head start with chapters that were written for ADWD but held over..

Actually Al, I would classify the Battle of Meereen as tedious filler. Wish it would be over in 1 chapter. Winterfell should be great though. That's something I'm genuinely excited about.


 Are you me?

That is my main problem with Meereen and Dany's "oriental" chapters in general. Too much stereotyping going around and poorly developed characters with overly complicated names that of course add to their "otherness". Poor writing overall, with a predictable outcome.

Hey, newsflash. GRRM is a mediocre writer. Always has been always will. But hey, I do love me some incest.

 The thing is, and I agree with Atreyu here, that even if by some miracle the book would be ready, no sane publisher would release TWoW so close to The World of Ice and Fire. And I don't think we can suspect Grrm of surprising everyone with an unexpected release. Remember, we're talking about the same guy that said AFfC and ADwD would be released only months apart.

I still have faith that I'll be holding a copy of TWOW in my hands before S5 airs.

Theoretically TWOW could come out about a year after the history book, no?

 Tehehehe.  

If by advanced copy they mean what Don posted, then this is totally plausible.

Big "Lost" fan, I did not know Bender by name, but I looked up what episodes he directed and they have been the best of the show.

VERY excited what he brings to table, the directing slots look great....now who will be writing season six?

Aw yes, he directed episode s02e01 of Lost, one of the best season openers ever. Don't get your hopes up Jap.

 

edit: hey Don, you tricked me, wrong thread!

He basically confirmed all of his fans and detractors major complaints. They intended the book before Season 6. Everyone is pissed off at him.

I'm not so much mad at Martin as I am disappointed that my TWOW prediction was wrong. What I am mad about is all those sycophantic taint snorklers who were rude to me and/or others when we said Martin's non-ASOIAF activities were interfering with his work on the series. Shawn Speakman, Werthead, etc. etc. Wish I could track down their "wisdom" and cram it down their fucking throats.

We were right all along.

Linda spent a couple of hours bitching about the show going too quickly. Because obviously it's their fault!

I actually chortled with glee when I read the update. And I do not use the word chortled lightly.

 As usual, she's taking out her frustrations on random people.  I saw one exchange where she was doing her usual bitching about the show, someone pointed out the show put her on the map, asked her how TWOIAF book sales were going (the implication being the show majorly bolstered sales for that book, which, of course, bolstered the money she makes from it), and told her to stop whining.  Her response?  Stop breathing or put your head in an oven.

 

She was also whining about how, since she isn't a "regular" fan (love that), she couldn't just ignore what the show was doing (in response to someone telling her, if you hate it so much, don't watch).

 

Poor, poor Lindaaaa.

I'm afraid to say the friends I made that bet with are already losing confidence, dear TW.

It's the end times, the Gurmocalypse.

After season 6 there might be only 13 episodes left of the show:

watchersonthewall.com/benioff-and-weiss-reportedly-considering-abbreviated-final-seasons/

I honestly don't mind this, I am glad the D & D have an endgame in sight for the show, and end while still being on top...similar how Breaking Bad did.

No, Atat mentioned that GM read a new chapter at a Con. There is a summary of it on Reddit.

Calling it a "new" chapter is generous. I have been told it was written in 2010.
