Just days after he announced that he wouldn’t write for the Game of Thrones television series in 2015 in order to devote himself to the next installment of the Song of Ice and Fire saga, George R.R. Martin has released a preview chapter from his upcoming work, The Winds of Winter. The excerpt, told from Sansa Stark’s point of view, quite obviously contains multiple spoilers. If you click the link below, as I did, you have only yourself to blame.
If you’re okay with mild-to-moderate spoilage, and you want to meet a long-awaited character first mentioned in A Feast for Crows—tantalizing!—read the excerpt here.
Martin has not yet set a completion date for The Winds of Winter, but we know that it will not be published in 2015. In the meantime, it’s nice to see any progress at all.
