If your a fan of the HBO series Game of Thrones there’s a good chance you’ve sought out the novels it’s based on. You might have been surprised to discover the series is still unfinished, but did you know the agonizing wait George R.R. Martin has been subjecting fans to for years!? Let’s just run through the publication dates for the series, shall we? A Game of Thrones 1996; A Clash of Kings 1999; A Storm of Swords 2000; A Feast for Crows 2005; A Dance with Dragons 2011.
As if the five year wait till book four wasn’t torture enough then it was another six years for the fifth! And just to let you know, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons were originally intended to be one book but when things got too long winded, he split ’em. Meaning, we visit half the characters in one and half in the other. MEANING, some characters hadn’t been heard from since 2000’s A Storm of Swords when last year’s A Dance with Dragons came out. To call this frustrating is a major understatement.
But the fans have stuck it through like good chaps, and have been waiting patiently for Martin’s next novel, The Winds of Winter. Which is only the sixth book in the proposed seven book series. When will he finish!? It’s something we ask ourselves all the time, and today, we can ponder this query musically.
Paul and Storm have finished their newest song, “Write Like the Wind, George R.R. Martin,” and today it got an official video thanks to Geek and Sundry. We shared their original rendition from a Wootstock performance in an earlier Nerdy Bits, but this video’s got production quality. As well as Jeff Lewis from The Guild, so it’s pretty stellar on all fronts. Definitely check it out, and please, George R.R. Martin, WRITE FASTER! WE BEG YOU!
