A Taste of Winter

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and readers, I've just replaced the (long published) sample chapters from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS on my website with an unpublished sample chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER.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

No offense
but I've always been of the mind that I don't want to spoil it for myself so I always skip sample chapters. :) Lol, believe me, I'm itching to read it but the wait is usually worth it.

Typo alert!
Theon says "Take off my head off" and I'm assuming one of the "offs" isn't meant to be there - FYI!

Thank you so much! God, this makes me anticipate the book even more than I already did. But take all the time you need. ^^

Game of Thrones
From the moment my eyes and ears experienced this wonderful epic, I knew that I was witnessing some of the best television in the past decade. I did my best to tell people something special was being shown on HBO and I have seen dozens of friends become hooked on some of the best storytelling since Tolkkein.

GRR, you deserve every accolade and I am glad to be alive to witness your phenomenal success!
