Ooh you guys, look at this little tasty I just dug up on the internet. It’s a preview chapter of the upcoming and hotly-awaited next Game of Thrones book, The Winds Of Winter. I guess if we’re being totally politically correct, the series is called ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’, but some of ya’ll just watch the HBO show and don’t read the books, so I didn’t want to confuse you.
Personally, I like the show, but I can’t get that sucked into it. That said, I won’t judge you too hard as long as you know your Dothraki from your Braavosi from your Tyroshi. Not a lot to ask.
This particular preview chapter is definitely legit, at it appears on George R. R. Martin‘s official website (he’s the writer, you big HBO-watching dummy), and it apparently centers around Princess Arianne and Dorne. I say apparently because…well…I’m still at the beginning of the fifth book. I’m going as fast as I can, but there are a lot of pages to get through, and all that will happen at the end is I’ll have to sit around waiting for him to finish writing the sixth book, just like the rest of you schmucks!
I’m sorry. That got out of control. I reacted that way because I’m ashamed. I’m ashamed that I’m not up-to-date on the TV show and I haven’t finished the fifth book and I’m just sure there are people who I think are dead who aren’t really dead or who I think are alive and have been dead for pages and pages. It’s a lot of pressure on a lady. BUT. My duty is to you, dear reader, so I wanted to make sure I provided the text. I haven’t read it, but my spidey senses tell me it’s completely worth waiting for.
