You know the saying “Good things come to those who wait”? Well for as long as all the Game of Thrones fans have been waiting (since July of 2011!) I sure hope George R.R. Martin’s sixth installment of A Song of Fire and Ice is electrifying genius. While no one is sure when the next book will be out, Mr. Martin gratuitously released a small paragraph to quench out thirst for the next book.
Somewhere off in the far distance, a dying man was screaming for his mother. “To horse!” a man was yelling in Ghiscari, in the next camp to the north of the Second Sons. “To horse! To horse!” High and shrill, his voice carried a long way in the morning air, far beyond his own encampment. Tyrion knew just enough Ghiscari to understand the words, but the fear in his voice would have been plain in any tongue. I know how he feels.
Do you feel better or more frustrated now that you’ve read that? Well, take solace in knowing that next month Random House is planning on launching a huge update to the World of Fire and Ice app where you will be able to read the entire chapter named The Winds of Winter which features our beloved Tyrion. What does this mean as far as the new book coming out? We don’t really know. It could mean that it’s taken George R.R. Martin nearly 3 years to write a single chapter. If you’re not the type to pay for apps, and still want to read the new chapter, you can do so on the free version. Along with the update will come new character and location information. The app is available on both Iphone and Android.
If you’re keeping up with the show, what are you most looking forward to in this coming season? Don’t say winter.
