Not only am I certain that Martin has isn't going to finish I also have come to the conclusion that he has achieved the dreaded "Too big to edit" stage. This is where popular authors become so popular that their editor is just a rubber stamp. Consequently their books become bloated monstrosities with each successive one worse than the last. J. K. Rowling might be the most famous example of this but you can see it in a lot of very popular long running series. When the books start growing by a third without actually adding anything to the story then you know you're in trouble.
