As the Game of Thrones television universe broadens with the upcoming prequel program House of the Dragon, George R.R. Martin, developer and author of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, hasactually offered a sort-of upgrade on his long-awaited Winds of Winter.
On his website, the author verified that his upcoming book will undoubtedly separate in numerous methods from the HBO series based on his Song of Ice and Fire as his epic conclusion is still being hammered out. “Another concern that I get a lot, specifically because the end of GAME OF THRONES on HBO, is whether A SONG OF ICE & FIRE, will end the exactsame method. An designer would be able to offer a brief, succinct, simple response to that, however I am much more of a gardenenthusiast. My stories grow and progress and modification as I compose them. I normally understand where I am going, sure… the last locations, the huge set pieces, they haveactually been my head for years… for years, in the case of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE. There are lots of devils in the information, though, and often the ground modifications under my feet as the words put forth,” he composed.
“Most of you understand by now that I do not like to offer comprehensive updates on WINDS. I am working on it, I haveactually been working on it, I will continue to work on it,” he stated of his development, and connected a video where he talked about what kind of author he is. No doubt to address the issues with the HBO series going off the rails—possibly due to the absence of roadway map when the program captured up to the books—he included: “What I haveactually discovered more and more of late, nevertheless, is my gardening is taking me evenmore and evenmore away from the tv series. Yes, some of the things you saw on HBO in GAME OF THRONES you will likewise see in THE WINDS OF WINTER (though perhaps not in rather the verysame methods)… however much of the rest will be rather various. And truly, when you believe about it, this was inescapable. The books are much larger and much much more complex than the series. Certain things that occurred on HBO will not takeplace in the books. And vice versa.”
Becoming rather a figure in the public eye has no doubt included some expectations for Martin, who has constantly been transparent that composing takes him sometime and that he prepares on consistingof more than what was seen on the program. “I have perspective characters in the books neverever seen on the reveal: Victarion Greyjoy, Arianne Martell, Areo Hotah, Jon Connington, Aeron Damphair,” he stated. “They will all have chapters, and the things they do and state will effect the story and the significant characters who were on the program. And… well, the list is long. (And all this is part of why WINDS is taking so long. This is tough, people).” He concluded by keepinginmind, “…not all of the characters who madeitthrough till the end of GAME OF THRONES will makeitthrough upuntil the end of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE, and not all of the characters who passedaway on GAME OF THRONES will passaway in A SONG OF ICE & FIRE. (Some will, sure. Of course. Maybe alotof. But certainly not all) (Of course, I might modification my mind onceagain next week…)”
That’s not precisely an upgrade, however it does noise motivating at least. We appearance forward to the end of A Song of Ice and Fire when it’s released ultimately!
