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.

2 questions if I may,
1st off Huzzah and congratulations. Now 2 questions...

1. When will the story teller for the audio book be announced. ( I won't lie, I'm hoping for the return of "Father")

2. Will there be an ebook release on the publication date or just the hard cover?

W00t! Congrats on this milestone, sir! This must have been like giving birth through your forehead for eight straight years. The relief must be palpable. What a landmark year -- married, and proud papa-to-be... of another book. Gratz again!

Best day ever. Can't wait, though watching GOT HBO will certainly help. Excited to congratulate you when that last chapter is written, GRRM!

Mr martin. I am currently listening to the series again on my iphone. Right now jon and sam are in crastors keep. The question i have is, is jim lee or roy dautrice slated to read ( either is fine, both are top of my favorite readers list) and will the audio book be available on the 12th as well.
