Yes, George R.R. Martin Knows You Want The Winds Of Winter Already

Episode 6 scene 20

It must be difficult being George R.R. Martin. Sure, he’s become one of the bestselling authors of all-time, whose books have led to one of the most successful TV show of all-time, but with all that prestige come some negatives — mainly the immense pressure that comes with all the work to come. And it’s especially rough when you haven’t even finished the novel series on which the hit TV show as based.

In case you haven’t heard, Martin still hasn’t finished the sixth entry of his Song of Ice and Fire, The Winds of Winter, and fans have had a bad habit of…prodding him to finish. And in case you were wondering, yes, Martin knows you want that damn book, as he revealed to NPR.

“It’s very important me to finish A Song of Ice and Fire. I want to finish it. I still have two more books to do, and I want to finish it strong. So people look at it and say, you know, this entire thing is an important work, not a half-finished or broken work. I know some of the more cynical people out there don’t believe that, but it is true.”

Well, he does have a point. Not to point to the TV show, but I’m going to point to the TV show, as it was something that many fans felt was rushed and ultimately failed to live up to its potential in the end. I doubt any fans want that to happen.
