George R.R. Martin Confirmed GAME OF THRONES Book Winds Of Winter Isn’t Coming In 2018

Fire and Blood

George R.R. Martin. The author confirmed today that while 2018 will see the release of a Game of Thrones book, it will not be the much-anticipated Winds of Winter. Rather, the author will be releasing Fire and Blood, which Martin proclaimed will be his version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, or the first half of it anyway:

FIRE & BLOOD, the history of the Targaryens, will be released in hardcover on November 20!

The book will chronicle the Targaryen Civil War, which played a big part in the history of Game of Thrones.
