The book fantasy fans have been waiting over five years for...will be on our shelves July 12th, 2011.
Author George R.R. Martin had this to say on his website:
Yes, I know. You've all seen publication dates before: dates in 2007, 2008, 2009. None of those were ever hard dates, however. Most of them... well, call it wishful thinking, boundless optimism, cockeyed dreams, honest mistakes, whatever you like.
This date is different. This date is real.
Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12. I hope you like it.
(For what it's worth, the book's a monster. Think A Storm of Swords.)
The dragons are coming. Prepare to dance.
And hey... thanks for waiting.Categories: buzz, SciFi & Fantasy
