So maybe this week was not the best week to talk smack about fantasy novels being serialized online.
Yesterday, George R.R. Martin released a chapter of the next installment in the Song of Ice and Fire series (or the Game of Thrones books, if you’re not being a jerk about it). The next book, The Winds of Winter, is due out God-knows-when, but for now, stop working and read this chapter, titled “Mercy.” Heads up: You should probably be ready for any spoilers it might contain. This is your official warning.
Finally, it looks like winter is coming — in a good way. Hopefully it won’t take too long.
For now, we’re re-posting this important message:
