I know there are a lot of us here that have been waiting for freaking ever for this book, the next in the “Song of Ice and Fire” series, to be written. Well, on his site, Martin himself has finally updated his status message and provided a link to a preview chapter (scroll down toward the bottom). Still no word on a publication date (and he specifically tells us not to believe any dates you may see on any websites), but this is much better than all these months of nothing!
I’m in the middle of the chapter now - I paused briefly to write this. It’s been so long since I’ve read the books that I can’t comment too intelligently on it, but it’s reminding me of why I like this series.
Go, George, go! And, while we’re at it, go faster!!
