Well the actual in mid 2010. The book remains to be inside process of being written. Six numerous years of writing a "partially completed" book. With two more books designed to come from then on! It is extremely frustrating to be a fan.
All that negativity aside, there can be a reason fans of his books gripe and vent whilst still being wait following a college hiatus then a six year hiatus. The books are merely that good. I will provide him his due, he will take time because he desires to only create a superior product.
More positive news is that there can be a HBO miniseries, that's forthcoming, based on this series. With the quality from the books, and the quality that HBO does making use of their series, I expect it will likely be great. Perhaps the HBO leg breakers will hold his feet for the fire in completing his novels.
I hope that MR. Martin will decrease his lots of side projects, convention attendances and book signings and simply get for the writing. This includes minimizing his involvement with all the HBO series. Trust it is in good hands, George. There will simply have a growing number of fans clamoring for his next book release after the series happens. Get to it George, we have been waiting.
