A Taste of This, A Taste of That

Some of you may not realize that, in addition to my Not A Blog, I also have an actual homepage / website. You can find it here: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/ Check it out, if you have not visited before. There's lots and lots of content there, all sorts of things to explore.

I must confess, though, I don't update it as often as I should. What can I say? I'm busy.

But today we uploaded a couple of new items that some of you may be interested in: new samples from two forthcoming books.

For all the Wild Cards fans out there, we've got a taste of HIGH STAKES, due out this August. HIGH STAKES is the twenty-third volume in the overall series, and the third and concluding part of the 'Fort Freak' triad. The sample is from the pen of the talented Ian Tregillis, and features Mollie Steunenberg, aka Tesseract. You'll find it at: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/wild-cards-excerpt/

((Readers with weak stomachs be warned, HIGH STAKES is our Lovecraftian horror book, and things do get graphic and bloody and... well... horrible. Althought not so much in the sample)).

And... because I know how much bitching I'd get if I offered a new sample from Wild Cards without also doing one from A SONG OF ICE & FIRE... we've also changed the WINDS OF WINTER sample on my wesbite, replacing the Alayne chapter that's been there for the past year with one featuring Arianne Martell. (Some of you may have heard me read this one at cons).

Have a read at: http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/

You want to know what the Sand Snakes, Prince Doran, Areo Hotah, Ellaria Sand, Darkstar, and the rest will be up to in WINDS OF WINTER? Quite a lot, actually. The sample will give you a taste. For the rest, you will need to wait.

And no, just to spike any bullshit rumors, changing the sample chapter does NOT mean I am done. See the icon up above? Monkey is still on my back... but he's growing, he is, and one day...

So will ADOS be Grandson of Kong? Or just Donkey Kong?

Thanks George, although I had read this chapter of WOW on the internet.
take the time you need to finish, that people wait.
I'm from Spain and with translation and publication time, I've done the idea that I will not have the book in my hands until next year.

Thanks George!
It's so exciting to read anything new from Winds! Thanks for sharing the chapter with us :) Arianne seems to be learning the Game in her own way :)

Great chapter - 2 quick questions
Loved the chapter but know discussion of the chapter belongs elsewhere. That being said, I wondered whether you might answer 2 very quick questions: Will Areo Hotah return as a POV character and do you plan to add one or more Dornish POV characters besides Arianne and Areo? Thanks so much for releasing the chapter!

Re: Great chapter - 2 quick questions
I have no plans to add additional Dornish POV.

Yes, Areo Hotah will continue as a POV.

A girl is happy
Thank you George for this surprise, but what about The-She-Wolves? Can a girl get a taste of that too? I missed Dunk&Egg and their advantures ^_^

Thank you
Also do you still enjoy writing or is it just a job at this point? Does it depend on what you are writing?

Previous Arianne Chapter
George, just to be certain, does this new Arianne chapter come chronologically after the previously released one? I assume yes, but wanted to ask. Also, I am never sure if I want to read these sneak peaks because I worry they will change before publication. Have you made (or do you foresee making) any significant tweaks to the previously released Alayne, Arianne, or Theon chapters? Regardless, thanks very much for throwing us fans a new bone and best of luck continuing to wrestle the monkey.

Thanks GRRM
Personally, I'm trying to avoid the HBO show as much as possible this season, preferring to read Winds first. So, thank you for publishing a new sample to whet my appetite and encourage me to keep up the--good fight. Best of luck shaking that monkey off!

I knew about the website, and have appreciated your book recommendations there. It's great to see more have appeared (like my TBR pile needs additions...)

Thanks!
Thank you for sharing this. I am eagerly awaiting reading it over my lunch hour today. And thank you for all your hard work. While a vocal and volatile bunch, we fans do truly appreciate all the heart and soul you put into giving us such a fantastic world to explore!!!
