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and readers, I've just replaced the (long published) sample chapters from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS on my website with an unpublished sample chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER.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

I'm going to 'try' to wait for the book. :<) Thanks for putting it out there though, as its likely I'll cave.

This week we'll finally know how the playoffs will shape up.

Right now it looks like NE & GB for the winter's Big Show.

spelling mistake
found not fond.

The fat man stroked one of the prongs of his oiled yellow beard, a gesture Tyrion fond remarkably obscene.

Thank you for the sneak peak though.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you! Best present I received this Christmas season! I've already read the chapter it three times and love every word. The ending was especially intriguing.

You're the greatest, and I wish you nothing but health and inspiration for 2012, sir.

Thank you.
This is truly a thoughtful gift! Not only are we able to watch the book 'come alive' on the HBO series, we are privileged to a sample from 'Winds.' Happy holidays!
