DRAGON TIME

[first posted at 9 am EST on my website]

No. Sorry. Not done yet.

I'm close, though. Watch this space. When the book is done, you will read it here.


original cover 2006

Meanwhile... there is news. Big news. The end is in sight, at long long last, and we're close enough so that my editors and publishers at Bantam Spectra have set an actual publication date.


revised cover 2007

A DANCE WITH DRAGONS will be in your favorite bookstore on

TUESDAY, JULY 12, 2011


new cover 2009

Yes, I know. You've all seen publication dates before: dates in 2007, 2008, 2009. None of those were ever hard dates, however. Most of them... well, call it wishful thinking, boundless optimism, cockeyed dreams, honest mistakes, whatever you like.

This date is different. This date is real.

Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12. I hope you like it.

((For what it's worth, the book's a monster. Think A STORM OF SWORDS))


final cover? 2011

The dragons are coming. Prepare to dance.

And hey... thanks for waiting.

Re: Audiobook ?
Seconded!

When is the audiobook coming? And will it be the same reader as the others?

Room for one more? What's all the fuss about?

Kidding! I started the series as soon as Book One was out in that pretty tinfoil dustjacket: September, '96. Hope you come back to Calgary, George! Congrats on the nuptials and getting this one (almost) delivered!

Wow....finalmente...I am sure DWD will prove worth waiting for all these years. At least the publisher had ample time to change the initial cheesy cover for a decent one ;) If a vote of pro painter/illustrator has any weight, the last one is the best.

Fantastic news!!
Mr. Martin, this is fantastic news! I've never posted on your blog before, but I exchanged a few emails with you years ago (probably 2005 or 2006?).. I've been checking your site once every month or two since FEAST was released, and more frequently recently.

Back in the emails we exchanged years ago, I told you not to worry about people complaining about the length of writing time and to just keep the quality up to your usual standard. I didn't expect this one to take *quite* this long :), but I'm glad I said what I said and I still stand by it. I can't wait to read DANCE, and I am absolutely certain it will have been worth the wait!

Thank you so much for all your hard work!

Oh, and if you go on a book signing tour I hope you'll come to Dallas! :)

About time... Don't you think?
Kidding... I just hope that you will NOT keep us waiting this long for the next one...
As I just finished re-reading Harry Potter books (hardcovers during morning and evening comute) I think I will re-read your series againe... for the fifteenth time If my memory serves me... No other author except Terry Pratchet can make me re-read the same books so many times.... Allthough, I think I will schedule my summer vacation for this release...

I am so excited! I can't wait to read Dance. We have all waited a long time but I am 100% sure the book will be worth the wait. Thank you for sharing your wonderful imagination with all of us.

Fantastic!
All good things are well worth waiting for. I'm glad you've been able to finish this on YOUR time without rushing for those who would try and force you to. I'm thrilled to see the masterpiece once it's completed...and so close to my birthday, what a treat :)

At last!

I'll really enjoy this book even if I have to go around with an english-spanish dictionary, because I know that I won't be able to wait the spanish translation to read it.

Lots of thanks for your wonderful work.
