Sunday’s Game of Thrones brought with it the dragon-sized twist fans have predicted for years, as one of Dany’s children inadvertently switched sides to join The Night King. “Beyond The Wall” didn’t exactly help our understanding of wights and White Walkers, but might that last shot mean Viserion is more ice dragon than undead?
Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin wouldn’t dare confirm The Winds of Winter to be published in 2017, but fans of the Song of Ice and Fire franchise will nonetheless get a new corner of Westeros to explore in print. Martin confirms that previously-unread short “The Sons of the Dragon” will see the light of day in a new 2017 fantasy anthology.
Game of Thrones Season 6 has come and gone, long-since making moot any questions of George R.R. Martin speeding out The Winds of Winter to avoid spoilers, but there may at last be hope in sight. Another reported leak places Winds of Winter with an early 2017 release, at least beating Season 7 to the punch.
Just when you’d resisted your last urge to yell at Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin to get back to work, the acclaimed author up and lands another TV series. Martin himself won’t actually be involved, but his voice will certainly be heard in a new TV adaptation of superhero universe Wild Cards.
Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin may not agree with every change the HBO adaptation makes, but that wouldn’t push him so far as too root for an Outlander Emmy over his own series, would it? The author claims “Outlander was robbed” at this week’s Emmy nominations, even if certain Game of Thrones stars finally got their due.
The sixth season of Game of Thrones made clearer than ever where author George R.R. Martin draws the line at confirming book twists spoiled by the HBO series, but that doesn’t mean the Game of Thrones creator signs off on every adaptational change. Showrunners reveal that Martin has at least a few disagreements with the HBO adjustments, even if he’s “a grown-up and a gentleman about it.”
