Once again breaking from our usual policy of sticking only to Thrones news, we just have to report on the latest update from George R. R. Martin concerning A Dance with Dragons, the upcoming fifth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Martin’s Not A Blog has a new post showing a dead King Kong, his adopted metaphor for Dance. While not an out-and-out confirmation that he has completed writing on Dance, it sure is a pretty strong hint!
In any case, July 12th is still the official publication date for A Dance with Dragons, so if GRRM’s post doesn’t mark the final nail in Kong’s coffin, it can’t be too far off. We will update this post here, if and when, we get official word of completion.
UPDATE: Martin’s editor Anne Groell has confirmed it. A Dance with Dragons is done!
