In May, he promised he would have finished writing it by summer 2020, when he travels to New Zealand for a science fiction convention. “If I don’t have The Winds of Winter in hand when I arrive in New Zealand for Worldcon, you have here my formal written permission to imprison me in a small cabin on White Island, overlooking that lake of sulphuric acid, until I’m done. Just so long as the acrid fumes do not screw up my old DOS word processor, I’ll be fine,” he wrote on his website.

Share via Email Share on Messenger Miranda Richardson Alison Flood George RR Martin has let slip a few details about the forthcoming Game of Thrones prequel, revealing that while there may be fewer dragons in the HBO television show, there will be direwolves, mammoths and White Walkers.The serial, which is currently being filmed in Northern Ireland, takes places thousands of years before the events in Game of Thrones and “chronicles the world’s descent from the golden age of heroes into its darkest hour”, according to HBO. Naomi Watts is lined up to star as “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret”, with Miranda Richardson also part of the cast. Jane Goldman and Martin himself are the show’s creators, with Goldman the showrunner.Martin said last year that the series would show Westeros as a very different place, with no King’s Landing, no Iron Throne and no Targaryens. “Valyria has hardly begun to rise yet with its dragons and the great empire that it built,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
