• George R. R. Martin announced that his books A Song of Ice and Fire would have the same ending as HBO's Game of Thrones .
• The most recent book in Martin's series was A Dance With Dragons released in 2011.
• Martin has not announced a release date for either of the last two books.
With many fans still wavering from the conclusion of Game of Thrones, it could be a relief to know that an alternative end – in a sense – is on the way. The author George RR Martin, who wrote the original series A Song of Ice and Fire on which the series is based, wrote to fans that the last two volumes of his books will not quite have the same end as David Benioff and DB Weiss brought to HBO.
Martin answered the fans' requests in a post titled "An Ending" on his own blog, which was given a jokeful title: Not a Blog: "How will everything end?" I hear People ask, the same end as the show? Different? "
The 70-year-old author made his intent in his next line clear. "Well … yes, and no, and yes, and no, and yes, and no, and yes," he said, before he dealt in detail with the fact that he was a writer with a very different medium than the six works ̵
As He Completely Says:
"I work in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget, they had six hours for this final season, and I expect that my last two books will fill 3,000 manuscript pages between them, before I'm done … and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I'll add them in. And of course, the butterfly effect will work too, those of you who follow this Not A blog will know that I'm talking since season 1. There are characters who have never made it to the screen, and others who died in the series but still live in the books Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and their pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell , Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Galant's Ser Garlan, Aegon VI, and a host of other big and small characters that the show's audience never had a chance to meet, and yes, there will be unicorns. of a kind … " In a way, it sounds as if he knows that the main events of the end will remain broadly the same, but he lures people with the chance that Roses d & # 39; 39; être for the characters and storylines that never existed even made it to the show.
At the same time, Martin clearly respected the work Benioff, Weiss and the rest of HBO's Thrones have cast as actors and crew, and has no interest in choosing one end as more legitimate than the other.
"Book or show, what will be the 'true' end? It's a stupid question How many kids did Scarlett O'Hara have?" he asked. I write it, you read it, then everyone can get a picture for themselves and argue about it on the internet. "
Martin, who exposed an Internet rumor he had finished the last two books, declaring that he will not begin until book seven when book six is completed. He has not announced a release date for both books.
