Game of Thrones Author Misses Last TV Deadline For New Book

 

In a surprise twist to almost no one, author George RR Martin announced that he missed the deadline which would have had The Winds of Winter, Book 6 of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, published before the airing of HBO's sixth season of the TV series Game of Thrones. 

 

Martin took to his blog to make the announcement. He wrote: 

“I blew the Halloween deadline, and I’ve now blown the end of the year deadline. And that almost certainly means that no, The Winds of Winter will not be published before the sixth season of Game of Thrones premieres in April.

 

I won’t make excuses. There are no excuses. No one else is to blame. Not my editors and publishers, not HBO. It’s on me. I tried, and I am still trying.” 

This should come as no surprise to book fans, many of whom have been waiting for a completion to this series since 1996. At this time, there is no true end in sight. Book fans will have to look for the TV show to give them an ending. Back in March 2015, show executive producer David Benioff confirmed that the show would spoil the ending of the book series: 

"We know where things are heading," said GoT executive producer David Benioff. "We will eventually meet up at pretty much the same place that George is going. There might be some deviations along the route, but we're heading toward the same destination."

Harry Potter-themed ambient noise

All those ambient noise sites I found, and I never once thought to check YouTube. It looks like the YouTube user "ASMR rooms" has also done Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones ambient noises.

 

I'm bookmarking this for times when audiobooks and music are too much and I just want background noise.

LonCon3 #21: Gender and Genre

Panellists: Francis KnightJenni HillMelanie FletcherJustin Landon

Are genres gendered? Truisms like “women don’t read science fiction” or “men hate romance” abound, but to what extent do these sorts of assumptions determine what we see on the shelves? How have certain sub-genres become strongly associated with writers (and readers) of a single gender? What are the difficulties faced by a writer trying to work in a (sub)genre traditionally associated with a gender other than their own? What role(s) can publishers and booksellers play in creating, reinforcing, or challenging such bias?

I’m So Sick of “Historically Accurate Rape”.

Content Warning: This post discusses rape and sexual assault, particularly against women, and spoilers for both Outlander and Games of Thrones. Approach with caution.

 

"Rape happens. It’s always happened, and it’s a depressing and horrific thing we should be tackling every single day. Great activists and charities are doing stellar work, often with little funding, and insightful writers are challenging perceptions in countless essays and stories. I’m not here to tell any writer what they should and shouldn’t write, but I do ask for a few moments of thought on this particular issue: If dragons are an excusable anachronism from ‘historically accurate’ tales but not raping women is political correctness gone mad, then what does that say about us all?"
