A Dance with Dragons! Yesterday George R.R. Martin announced that he is (finally) almost finished with the latest installment fan of the series (like myself) have been waiting for years for:

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 [2011]. I hope you like it.


I know quite a few of you guys have been interested in the books so I thought I'd share the great news. So feelings, thoughts? Anyone as excited as I am? I'm hoping they'll release a kindle version at the same time as the hard copy, but if not then I won't let that keep me from getting a copy on release!

Anyone have a rough idea of the timeline for audiobook releases? Would they release it simultaneously with the book, due to the series' popularity, or would one have to wait a bit for it?

I suppose I'll probably get a hard copy either way, though. I recently started the gf on the first book in hard copy, and I suspect she'll take the series through to the end that way.

This is going to give me incentive to actually finish the other books. I was completely demotivated by the fact that the series wasn't finished yet. (I've had enough of that with the Wheel of Time....)

Dance is not the last book in the series, there are still at least two more coming. Which sadly will probably take another ten years or so.

Oh. Well. Consider me re-demotivated then. Smiley: frown I mean, come on. Even Robert Jordan can finish his series, and he's dead!

Sort of like how reads of the Clan of the Cave Bear series had to wait 11 years for the last one, and we're not holding our breath for the next one any time soon.
