  1. Sorry, but that proves nothing. The ‘latest’ excerpt is over a year old. I think GRRM is only good at editing anthologies now. Too bad, sure was a helluva start.

  2. I hope he introduces a bunch of new characters in the last two books, kills off one or two more of the most central characters, explains nothing about the things fans are interested in -like Snow’s mom- and leaves all of the central plot points unresolved- e.g. Daenarys is not yet taking over the west, the Others are still futzing around, etc.

    • Nah, the show’s going to either stop, or (more probably) go ahead with writing its own conclusion if Martin hasn’t finished TWOW within the next year. They’ve already added a fair amount of original material, and some of the characters’ plotlines in Season 4 are already including events from A Feast for Crows (e.g., Brienne) and A Dance with Dragons (e.g., Bran). Season 5 is going to take them up to the end of the published series, and possibly beyond.

      I wouldn’t mind Weiss, Benioff et al. writing their own conclusion for the show. Martin’s pretty clearly getting bogged down and has lost track of his central narrative.
