989-page Targaryen history book

Famous American science fiction writer and screenwriter, George R.R. Martin postponed the release of a new book series of epic fantasy novels “A Song of Ice and Fire.” He wrote about this in his blog.

‘No, winter is not coming… not in 2018, at least.   You’re going to have to keep waiting for THE WINDS OF WINTER,’ stated Martin. ‘Archmaester Gyldayn has at last completed and delivered the first half of his monumental history of the Targaryen kings of Westeros, FIRE & BLOOD.’

As noted in the statement, the book will be published by Ballantine Bantam Dell. It will be released in the US and Canada on November 20, 2018, so you have a chance to read something before the last season of TV-series and the next book of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire.’

The book will be released in Germany, France, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands and Poland, and in other countries, which are to be announced later.

Also, the author mentions that ‘Fire&Blood’ won’t be as long as the other books of the series, but there are a lot of fresh and interesting facts to learn about the universe and, in particular, Targaryen history:

‘This first volume covers all the Targaryen kings from Aegon I (the Conquerer) to the regency of Aegon III (the Dragonbane), along with their wives, wars, siblings, children, friends, rivals, laws, travels, and sundry other matters.’

The fascinating things about the upcoming book are that it is illustrated (Doug Wheatley) and full of dragons!

‘No, it won’t be a huge coffee table book with art on every page, like A WORLD OF ICE & FIRE… but there will be lots of lots of interior artwork,’ stated Martin in his blog.

HBO is currently working on several prequels of ‘Game of Thrones,’ but  George R.R. Martin has already started developing the next book of the series, so soon we will see our beloved characters again! But not in 2018…
