DRAGON TIME

Spain
[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.

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.

My boyfriend and I are huge fans. In fact, part of what really brought us together was talking about your books. He made me read them before we started dating, and I fell in love instantly-- both with his taste in books and with your writing.
Today is our first anniversary. Originally, it was the day that the HBo series was supposed to be previewed, which we thought was magical. But this is even better.
Thank you so much, George. We met you at C2E2 last year and you were so sweet. I don't mind waiting so long just because I know you wrote this book to be the best that it can be. I can't wait to finally read it.

Vermithrax!
Couldn't help but notice the new Userpic.

It's the dragon Vermithrax from the 80's movie Dragonslayer!!!

And hey... thanks for waiting.

Thanks for writing. Thanks for keeping at it and not letting the pressure get to you. Thanks for keeping us informed and for being chill even when some fans get heated and impatient. Thanks for being awesome.

I'm psyched to see that you have a date, and that things are moving along well enough for you to actually set the date.
I can't wait to read what you've written, and to finally find out what some of my favorite people have been up to.

If I had dualie pisols...
I'd be firing them in the sky and clicking my heels together. This is the best news of 2011. Seriously. Too bad I'm knee deep in Wheel of Time right now, otherwise I might be able to squeeze a GoT-FfC re-read.

Thanks for keeping at it George. It's been a long time coming, but I couldn't be more thrilled to find out that it's finally here.

Please post book signing dates. Please, please, please come to San Francisco, CA.
