Kong is Dead!

Recommended Posts

 It looks like that GRRM is officially done with ADWD.  He announcd that kong is dead today around noon on his not a blog, but it doesn't look like he has updated it under the Ice and Fire update yet. 

 

Just thought everybody would like to know.

That's going to be super-fast turn around, to have several million copies in print in just over 2 months. But I have full faith that we'll see it on the 12th. I feel much better knowing that it is finally, fully done.

And, if his posts are to be belived, he does have about 10% of Winds of Winter done (which will likely only be 5% of the finished book).

I agree with you.  5% sounds like a pretty good estimate.  I will be happily reading Winds of Winter when I am 35 (I am currently 25)

I still got the Martin fans beat. I've been waiting for Daivd Gerrold's A Method for Madness (book 5 of The War Against the Chtorr) for about 20 years. He claims it should be done this year...which is the same thing he said when I met him seven years ago. But I do think I'll see it within the next 12-18 months, if his Facebook posts are accurate. And considering this is the only book series I love more than Thrones, I'm still anxiously awaiting it.

Well, considering this book was 1/2 written when the last one came out...and now he is 10% done with the next one...doing the math...2050! 

 

Well in that case I will be around 70, which will probably mean GRRM will be dead.  Can't wait!

I suppose we can all hope that AFFC and ADWD are going to be the hardest books for him to write.
