A Taste of Winter

As a Christmas gift to all my loyal fans and readers, I've just replaced the (long published) sample chapters from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS on my website with an unpublished sample chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER.

Go ye to "Ice & Fire Sample" on my website and enjoy.

(The chronology, as usual, is tricky. This chapter will be found eventually at the beginning of WINDS, but as you will be able to tell from context, it actually takes place before some of the chapters at the end of DANCE).

Love it or hate it, please do NOT discuss it here. Any such posts will be deleted. There are plenty of great places on the net for such discussions, so take your thoughts, comments, and analysis to Westeros or the Tower of the Hand or the Podcast of Ice and Fire, or your favorite foreign language site.

(FYI, there will be a different sample chapter from WINDS OF WINTER included at the end of the paperback edition of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS when that is published next July).

Happy holidays, all. Keep reading.

Thank you! It was nice visiting Westeros again, and even though the visit was brief, it was certainly worth it!

Awesome, thank you!

Just a nitpick: the end of the chapter does not render correctly in Firefox (version 8), the copyright footer overlaps with the last few lines (it renders correctly in Chrome and Opera, though). Might want to tell your webmaster about it.

Thanks again and happy holidays Mr. Martin!

Thank you!

One more nitpicky thing: The title of sample page is "GRRM - Wild Cards Sample" - perhaps it should be "Winds of Winter Sample" instead?
