Game Of Thrones: The Winds Of Winter Expected In 2016 Says Spanish Editor

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.
