Like thousands of others, I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of winter – ‘The Winds of Winter’ that is, the next installment of George R.R. Martin’s epic fantasy series. It looks like it’s going to be a bit of a wait though – 2017 at the earliest. I wish Mr Martin all the best with it. I’d much rather he took his time and got it right, than rush it to meet a deadline and not be 100% happy with the result. In the meantime we can just wait and wonder what will happen next.
