When we reported that George R.R. Martin was skipping two fan conventions in order to focus on the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series, The Winds of Winter, we didn’t really know how he would deliver on this. After all, there have been many delays in the years since the most recent book in the series, A Dance of Dragons, came out in 2011.
Now we finally have some good news for all of you George R.R. Martin fans: the author has released the first chapter of The Winds of Winter, and you can read it for free online!
