Right on the heels of Game of Thrones returning to its fourth season on HBO (April 6th at 9 pm), author George R.R. Martin released another chapter of his forthcoming Song of Fire and Ice novel ‘The Winds of Winter’ to the public. The chapter is titled ‘Mercy’ and unsurprisingly follows the plights of a character named Mercy.
It’s all good and good that Martin is releasing material to the fans, but if he is going at the chapter a year pace, we all may be waiting for a very long time for things to wrap up. And they’ll have to recast the show a few times over before its completion, too. But in Martin’s defense, he is currently winning the prove your next book actually exists war with Patrick Rothfuss, so points to him for that. Either way, I will be excited to check out both ‘The Winds of Winter’ and ‘The Doors of Stone’ whenever they respectively hit shelves. Until then, head over to George R.R. Martin’s blog to check out the new chapter.
