George R. R. Martin has given us a present: he’s posted a new preview chapter from The Winds of Winter. The most recent book of A Song of Ice and Fire came out in July 2011 (A Dance With Dragons), and Martin has tentatively said we should see Winds in 2014. Key word being “tentatively”. I recently read Dance, and given the long wait ahead, I think I’ll save this preview for a later date or maybe read one word a day so I can savor it.
I mostly jest. It’s nice of him to share progress, and I’ll take whatever I can get.
