This entire nearly hour-long conversation between writing luminaries George R. R. Martin and Stephen King is well worth listening to in its entirety, but before that: skip to around 50:08 and hear Martin ask the one question he’s always wanted to put to King. It’s worth it.
Making a rare public appearance, George R. R. Martin was a guest at Balticon last weekend, where the author read a new extract from Winds of Winter.

Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Martells are also preparing to strike, as you can read thanks to this newly released excerpt…
With its sixth season nearly here, Game of Thrones is ready to leapfrog where George R.R. Martin’s books left off, since Martin’s The Winds of Winter is yet to arrive. But when we feel the Winds at last, there will be at least one huge surprise to Thrones viewers.

One of the biggest events in Game of Thrones history before the events of the show is the “Dance of Dragons”—an epic two-year-long battle that saw Daenerys’ ancestors in House Targaryen nearly rip themselves apart in civil war. Scratching your head in confusion? Have no fear, HBO is here!
Whenever George R.R. Martin does anything that isn’t releasing the next A Song of Ice and Fire novel, some (typically crass) people tend to cry “he’ll be dead before he finishes!” But apparently Syfy’s Z Nation is going to show that not even a little thing like zombification can stop Martin from writing.

If there's two things fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series can agree on, it's that 1) author George R.R. Martin is weaving an incredibly dense tale where far more happens (and has happened) than what's just on the page, and 2) that no character is safe from GRRM's murderous pen.
Greetings, my beloved stamp-scavengers! Today I bring you a Hot Take on the lack of The Winds of Winter, why Bruce Wayne isn't worried about an heir, and how Star Wars would be different if Luke Skywalker had been a narc for the Empire. It's marginally more fun than being stung by a giant, irradiated scorpion!
Um, I can’t even report this news without it being a spoiler for those who know certain things about the Game of Thrones TV show, the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, or even just one pertinent behind-the-scenes fact.
