The end of Game of Thrones is approaching and unless David Benioff and D.B. Weiss pull a rabbit out of the galley the outcome will not leave fans satisfied. For a few weeks now all the hopes are put on George RR Martin and the delayed books which, according to surprising statements by one of the actors of the series, would already be finished. During the fantasy convention Epic with 2019 in Russia, Ian McElhinney, the actor who interpreted Sir Barristan Selmy, said that the author had already written «The Winds of Winter» and «a dream of spring» but that by an agreement with the chain HBO can not publish them until Qu E The show is finished.
The series surpassed the events of the books in the sixth season and although it is half-searched (and you have to see it through the eyes of a fanatic) it made sense for HBO to anticipate the disaster that was going to be these last episodes and force the author to delay the launch of Sixth book to cool the compared to the series. Unfortunately Martin himself was responsible for denying the rumor in his personal blog. «No, ‘ the winter winds ‘ and ‘ a spring dream ‘ are not finished. ‘ Dreams ‘ is not even begun; I’m not going to start writing volume seven until I finish volume six, «he wrote. «HBO didn’t ask me to delay them. Neither David (Benioff) or Dan (Weiss). There is no ‘ agreement ‘ to delay books. I assure you that HBO and David and Dan would have been delighted if ‘ the winter winds ‘ had been delivered and published four or five years ago… And NO ONE would have been more delighted than me. »
«I’ve said it before: don’t believe anything you read on the Internet.»
It is impossible to read Martin saying that HBO and the creators of the series would be «delighted» to have had the book years ago and not to think that the author is as disappointed as the rest by the way the story was completed. » Dragon Dance «was released in 2011 and since then the author has divided his time in writing the rest of the story, enjoying his celebrity status, collaborating on the series and upcoming HBO shows, and publishing some novels that expand the mythology of Poniente as the complementary book «The World of Ice and Fire» of 2014, the collection of the Adventures of Dunk and Egg «a Knight of the Seven Kingdoms» of 2015, and the two parts of the history of the Targaryen titled «Fire and Blood» of 2018.
