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.

The Theon chapter
Mr. Martin,

I can't express how happy I am to get this christmas present. It got me siked for The World of Ice and Fire, The Winds of Winter and the new Dunk and Egg all at once.

However, and I know I'm asking much, a friend of mine didn't get to read the Theon-chapter you gave us last year. Arianne's new chapter has been put in it's place.

Is it possible to read that chapter online as of now?
I've seen it published as an extra chapter in the paperback version of A Dance with Dragons, but he and I already have the hardback, and as much as we love your books we can't really buy two versions of the same book.

You're an awesome writer and you've made me read again after many years of being sick and tired of it. I'm now reading the Wheel of Time saga after I read that Jaime vs Rand-battle sequence. Even though I spoiled myself a bit by reading that very sequence, it does not matter because the journey to those "spoilers" is written very well. A Song of Ice and Fire is still a bit better though, in my opinion.
I don't know if a Baratheon would say it like this but...

Yours is The Fury

p.s.:I wrote this ten paragraph-long droolfest over the Theon chapter but decided not to post it because I'm sure by now you know how great a writer you are. Not trying to get that chapter, just saying you're a great writer
