A Taste of Winter

For all of you who have been clamoring, I have a somewhat belated Xmas/ New Year's gift, a new sample chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER. You can find it on my website.

This one features Arianne Martell, Princess of Dorne.

(And here she is, couresty of Fantasy Flight Games and Magali Villeneuve)


Read, enjoy, discuss, and speculate to your heart's content... but not here, please, there are better places for that, like the forums at Westeros and Tower of the Hand.

Me, I have a lot more writing to do. On WINDS, and half a dozen other projects.

Fantastic! This made my day! I've never been a big fan of fantasy (apart from Tolkien), but your series is extraordinary.

Thanks for the chapter! I have really enjoyed the Dornish stuff and can't wait to see how it will all turn out. I'm on for the ride!

Poor boy in the background, he seems distraught. He forgot to pray to the angels, and the angels forgot to pray for him. 5o long, Arianne.

I have had an absolutely HORRIBLE week so far. I think this is the first time I cracked a "real smile," so thank you for that! *so excited!!!*

Dunk and Egg
Dear George

I was able to read your sample chapter earlier today at work, thank you again so much for giving us this little taste of winter. If it’s anything like your last five books I know I’ll love it when it eventually comes out. I just have a quick question and I know you can’t give me a clear cut answer, but I was wonder how your work on Dangerous Women was coming? I haven’t heard you or any of the other authors really talk about it since the summer and was wonder what the status of that project was

Btw: I love Dunk and Egg and can’t wait to see where their next adventure brings them and who they might meet, ha ha ha

Re: Where can I find the other sample chapters
This is only the 2nd sample chapter released thus far. A Theon chapter was released a year ago. The other chapters you have heard about were from readings.

Discussions of other chapters GRRM has read at conventions can be found on Westeros. Enter at your own risk if you are afraid of spoilers (and crackpot theories).

There s a video of GRRM from a con that ends with a reading. I'm sure someone will follow with a link to it.

Wow, just Wow...
Quick work is a shame for the craftsmen. This is an old proverb in my country which somehow corresponds to the English Haste Makes waste. So keep the good work Mr. Martin. Thank You. I opened a can of seven up to celebrate the new chapter appearance. It is too early for bheer right now…:)

Theon's Chapter
Is the Theon chapter still available to read? All the search engine links just take me to the Arianne chapter.

I know this has nothing to do with the chapter you posted and I always kinda wanted to ask this question for a long time, when Stannis looks into the flame and sees himself on the Iron Throne, does he wear crown?

Cersie- "Only two people may sit upon the Iron Throne, the king and his hand"

I'm pretty sure even if I was kinda on to something you would prob hold back from revealing that one :P but its something that always itched the back of mind

Great Chapter though, really wish we could read the Tyrion Chapter you read at a conference awhile back but this chapter settled my ASoIaF addiction....for now :D

Is this the full chapter?
Or just some of it? It seems to just kind of end.

oh god.. stop writing everything else.. how can i live with the longing to read that story - and the whole game of thrones story .. how can it possibly end..
best would be there would be 20 more books of it, but i suggest the finiteness of something makes it a lot more valuable.. like the finiteness of a character.. or of life..

so respectful greetings from germany and a huge fan of the game of throne book series who gulps every new site (Im reading the 3. one right now!!).
thank you for game of thrones!! it's genious!!!

So excited to dig into the new chapter. Thanks for sharing with us & best of luck with all the ongoing projects.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you... Great late Christmas present. I really do hope to receive a greater one from you (the whole book maybe!!!!) until next Christmas....
Thanks again

Quentyn – Arianne Martell relationships as hinted in the chpter is a bit which I liked in particular in that chapter. Juxtaposition made (not only that was expressly mentioned i.e. of the last Targaryens of course but at least several other brothers and sisters pairs in the story revealed in so far) is really a magnificent approach. Another juxtaposition restating again the old dispute who the best fighter is – was another very thrilling detail. A member of the seven deadly white brothers is not anymore a valid milestone. And another swordsmen is called not a man = human. I can’t wait to see hoew the story will go on…
