Fans of Game of Thrones have been desperate for details concerning the publication of The Winds of Winter, George R.R. Martin’s next novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Martin’s Spanish editor may have some good news for them.
Alejo Cuervo – editor for Ediciones Gigamesh, Martin’s Spanish publisher – told radio station El Mon a RAC that The Winds of Winter should be on store shelves in 2016.
Here’s a quote from the interview, translated by Watcher on the Wall:
Radio Host: The sixth book will be?
Cuervo: It is expected next year
Radio Host: In English, but in Spanish when will it be?
Cuervo: We have been promised the manuscript in advance of the release in English which we will translate, there won’t be a big difference.*
Radio Host: But you are equally sure it will be next year?
Cuervo: Well, let’s see, confident…but a meteor could fall
Cuervo sounds pretty confident, so it seems like A Song of Ice and Fire readers will have something to look forward to next year. The question now is whether The Winds of Winter will beat Game of Thrones Season 6 to release.
