Now that HBO has introduced a pair of new shows set within the Game of Thrones Westerosiverse (for the shortage of a greater time period), it’s excessive time for A Music of Ice and Hearth’s George R.R. Martin to weigh in on the following televisual representations of the world he created. Whereas he doesn’t have a lot to say concerning the spinoff centered on the original Aegon’s conquest, he did point out the Knight of the Seven Kingdoms collection, for which he hopes to write down extra tales to allow future seasons of the present.
That is cute.
I’m not right here to castigate GRRM for not ending the sixth quantity of the Recreation of Thrones collection but; if The Winds of Winter will get revealed throughout my or his lifetime, nice. I’ll be thrilled to learn it. However the concept the writer is one way or the other going to search out time to write down extra tales concerning the knight-errant Dunk and his squire and future Targaryen ruler Egg over the following few years when his priorities have lengthy been organized is cute, to say the least. However no less than Martin is aware of it. From his Not a Blog blog:
“Earlier than we attain the tip of the revealed tales, I might want to discover time to write down all the opposite Dunk & Egg novellas that I’ve deliberate. There are… gulp… extra of them than I had as soon as thought. There’s ‘The Village Hero’ and the Winterfell story, the one with the She-Wolves, and possibly I would like to write down that Dornish journey too to slide in between ‘The Hedge Knight’ and ‘The Sworn Sword,’ and after that there are… ah… extra. I simply want to complete THE WINDS OF WINTER, after which do both A DREAM OF SPRING or quantity two of FIRE & BLOOD, and slip in a brand new Dunk & Egg between every of these in my copious spare time… and that may hold me forward of Ira [Parker] and his merry crew… for a couple of extra years.”
So, yeah. He’ll get proper to these additional Dunk and Egg tales after the 2 remaining novels in A Music of Ice and Hearth, or a sequel to the Home of the Dragon fake historical past e book/supply materials Hearth & Blood (which I didn’t even know was within the desk!), or possibly that Wild Playing cards TV collection individuals hold speaking about, or god is aware of what else.
That stated, Martin does plan on co-writing the entire episodes of the Knight of the Seven Kingdoms collection alongside Home of the Dragon’s Ira Parker, which is able to apparently deal with certainly one of Martin’s three revealed Dunk and Egg novellas every season. So when the present does finally make it to air—which will probably be 2025 on the absolute earliest—he’ll have three years minimal to write down one other story. Good factor he has a lot spare time!
