George RR Martin reveals he’ll write THIS between Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring
The 70-year-old Game of Thrones author is still working on The Winds of Winter, with next year hopefully being the release date. However, he still has A Dream of Spring to go to conclude A Song of Ice and Fire. Nevertheless, Martin has now revealed what book he plans to write in between the two. The author took part in a Q&A to promote Fire & Blood in London on Thursday evening.
The Wertzone Blog was in attendance and noted his planned writing schedule, without release dates, going forwards:
1. The Winds of Winter
2. Dunk & Egg IV (either The She-Wolves or The Village Hero)
3. A Dream of Spring
4. Dunk & Egg V (either The Village Hero or The She-Wolves)
5. Fire & Blood II
The blogger also noted: “No dates were mentioned and the order sounded aspirational rather than set in stone.”
Fans of Martin’s work will know that Dunk & Egg are a series of on-going novellas by Martin that are prequels to the main novels.
They follow a hedge knight called Ser Duncan the Tall, who becomes a legendary member of the Kingsguard.
And also his squire known as Egg, who goes on to become King Aegon V Targaryen.
So far three Dunk & Egg novellas have released in the form of The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword and The Mystery Knight.
Now considering Dunk & Egg IV is a novella, fans waiting patiently for Martin to finish A Song of Ice and Fire shouldn’t worry about it holding him up too much.
The author revealed there are nine potential further stories in total beyond the original three.
But he’s got to finish The Winds of Winter first, so perhaps Dunk & Egg IV could be out by late 2020 if he’s quick.
