But it’s not the one you think it is!
October will bring the release of a new Game of Thrones book, however it is not the long awaited for book, “The Winds of Winter”. Instead the new book is called “The World of Fire and Ice” a comprehensive history of Martin’s world, will be released on Oct. 26 in New York and 28th October in the UK. It’s billed as a “lavishly illustrated” volume spanning from the Dawn Age to the fall of the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen.
The complexity of the Game of Thrones universe has long fascinated fans, and the book should answer even casual readers’ questions. Who were the First Men? Who was Aegon the Conqueror? It will also shed light on how past events caused the bloody struggles between the Baratheons, Starks and Lannisters.
Martin has co-written the book with Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson, the webmasters of westeros.org. Game of Thrones fans needn’t worry though, because we hear that after one more promotional appearance in New York, George Martin will continue his work on the next book in the Game of Thrones series.
