Something Old, Something New

Hiya kids, hiya hiya hiya.

With season 4 of HBO's GAME OF THRONES almost upon us, I thought the time was ripe for me to give my readers another taste of WINDS OF WINTER.  So I will shortly be posting a new sample chapter there.  (If you have not read the Arianne chapter that has been up there lo these many months, better do so soon, because Arianne will be coming down when the new sample goes up).

The new chapter is actually an old chapter.  But no, it's not one I've published or posted before, and I don't even think I've read it at a con (could be wrong there, I've done readings at so many cons, it all tends to blur together).  So it's new in that it is material that no one but my editors (well, and Parris, and David and Dan, and a few others) have ever seen before, but it's old in that it was written a long time ago, predating any of the samples that you have seen.  The first draft was, at any rate.  I've rewritten it a dozen times since then.

Anyway, I've blathered on about it long enough, I will let the text speak for itself.

Chapter title is "Mercy."

(And as with past samples, please don't talk about it here.  There are dozens of great places to talk about the books on the web, but this is not one of them.  If you want to talk about the chapter after you've read it, check out Westeros or Tower of the Hand or one of the many other great Ice & Fire sites).

Watch my website.  Coming soon.

If it's a Sansa chapter, I'm going to explode in happiness. However, if it's Arya, I have no words for it. Exciting! Oh Bran and Rickon I miss them....

Something is something

Could you please also write a version of your books where the Starks have won the war and are all back together in Winterfell?

That would be great...

Your books are a work of genius that will live on for generations to come.
A Game of Thrones. A book, a show, and to some... a religion.
A religion whose deity (George R.R. Martin) rarely grants you new passages in your holy book. But when he does, festivals are thrown. Virgins are sacrificed...
And then more is demanded. :p

Thank you so, so much!
