Thread: ADWD Release July 12th!
February 10th, 2011, 09:11 AM #61
And our fifth off-topic or simply whiny post over the last few days gets us a lock on this thread. We'll open it back up when someone lets us know by PM that there's something new to add.

ADWD even more imminent?
So GRRM has updated with a very specific and interesting update. It seems obvious that he's talking about Theon and Asha Greyjoy (or so I gather), the "sliver of sun" could be about the Martells, and snowing on Skull Island can be interpreted as him writing something about snow (Jon Snow, or actual snow descending as it began to do in 2005's AFFC), or it could mean that he is once again mired down in the book's details, postponing the release further..? What do you think?
One could look at it as "three chapters left" I guess, but then again we haven't heard if the Meereeneese knot has been finally cut.
Which makes me wonder if he really did say that "ADWD" was supposed to be that second infamous announcement?
If yes, does the "snowing on Skull Island" simply mean "sorry just as I thought it was done, I felt the need to change something"?

Thread is open for now, as Slynt has brought us what looks to be new information. So long as we stay relevant to that, we'll leave this open.

Didn't GRRM refer to one of his projects as King Kong (as in the size of the monkey on his back)? And doesn't Kong live on Skull Island?

ADWD was going to be the second announcement. Someone at the signing reported that was what he said. Of course, if it was, even taking into account his illness, he should have been done by about now at the latest, which makes me think he wouldn't have made the original date even if he was not ill. Which is not exactly a huge surprise.
There was new information released yesterday about the first ASoIaF computer game, which looks a bit ho-hum, to be honest. Could be good, but the free mods several fan communities are working on at the moment look quite a bit more impressive.

It sounds like he's worked on a Theon chapter? And now is working on an Asha chapter, then on to a Jon.
A bit worrying that he's still only working on these chapters. I'd have thought he'd be done writing everything by now.

postponing the release further
As updates go, this one's purpose is fairly unclear. It's possible that GRRM's update was a way of letting us know he's not done yet and to not expect an imminent completion announcement or actually the exact opposite.

All RIIiiiight an RTS.... awesome. The board games fantasy flight have made are excellent but I bet more people will end up getting that thing.

Not yet, Peregrin, though some people feel like it might be getting close.

I can see this being the first hardback I've bought in years, it's all fresh in my mind and I don't want to loose it!
I'm hoping that the announcment of the release date will very shortly precede its release..

February 22nd, 2011, 01:31 AM #75"I severed the knot last night, delivered the book this afternoon, it'll be out Sunday."
I was thinking more like a month in advance, but then I've no idea of the time scales from George's final draft to seeing it in UK bookstores
