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.

YESSSSSSS!
I feel like I'm a grade-school'er again waiting for Christmas. George, thank you for the update, and thank you for writing the best fantasy series in the history of planet Earth. July cannot come fast enough.

Over the past few weeks I've been reading reviews of the series on Amazon and such. I could not believe the amount of bad feedback the books received. None of it reflected poorly on the work itself, but of the time between novels. I mean, these were toxic and ridiculously negative reviews. They told all readers to never begin the books, as the series would never be finished.

Well George, that says a lot. It says that people LOVED the books so much, that waiting for the next one hurt so bad that they wrote of the series all together.

After a taking a vacation when Dance is Done (a short one please : )) keep writing Ser. Slow and steady wins the race.
