Saw an interview on youtube with GRRM asking him about this....according to him, not only will he finish ASOFAI, but wants to write tons of other stuff afterward in the sci fi realm. Time will tell, but I'm not hopeful this series will be finished.

Nah, I actually think he will finish the series. He has been writing a ton, its not like he has some sort of writers / success block. And I'm pretty sure he has the material well in hand, I think he has enough to finish WoW as it is. I'm hoping all the fan/tv pressure to actually finish will be enough. I think he actually does care what his fans think and wants to produce for them.

Love that show, season 1 and 2 are really great. Season 3 is pretty decent, but they really should have stopped it there.

Hope so! Seems like it takes him longer to edit than to actually pound out the stuff. At least that's the impression I get watching interviews.

Three of the six released teaser chapters or summaries of chapters he's read at various cons were originally included in ADwD and were taken out for space constraints and to leave the Mereen story as a cliffhanger. I think the two involving Dorne and the one in the North were completely new. I'm not sure though. It's a very slow process due to so many overlapping storylines.

I hope you're right. But my understanding (arrived at by the completely reliable method of reading random stuff on the internet) is that a large part of the reason the prior two books so long was his difficulty in corralling and editing the material, not writer's block. Plus
1. He was laughably unreliable in his progress reports on the previous books, so I'm not sure relying on what he says now in interviews is warranted.
2. During the long delay in producing the last two books, he became so resentful and defensive in response to fan pressure that there was a standing rule that he would walk out of talks/readings/etc. if people asked him about it. I'm sure the popularity of the tv series has made him more of a rock star and thereby increased the fan pressure. Whether that pressure makes him more productive or less is an open question.

post #2845 of 4871
but make him finish the book first
post #2846 of 4871
lolz, but of course.
post #2847 of 4871
Apparently he has told the showmakers how it all ends, so worst case, we'll be able to put it together from that.

No, really, do not read this. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Does anyone not think Melisandre tries to burn Jon, she can't burn him because he's actually blood of the Dragon, he comes back to life, wakens some dragons, saves the world, meets up with Dany, and they marry and end up ruling? Of course they will die horrible deaths, as will their kids, and their kids' kids, etc. as that's who GRRM rolls.

sounds reasonable enough.
