“Game of Thrones” fans have wanted the latest George RR Martin novel to be released for ages. It appears we are inching ever closer to The Winds of Winter’s release date. At least according to Los Siete Reinos, who has a potentially HUGE news alert, about the publication date for the long awaited sixth novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series–The Winds of Winter. An editor for Ediciones Gigamesh, the small Spanish publisher who owns the rights to the books, said during an interview with Catalan radio station El Mon (The World) RAC1 that he knows when the book will come out. The article also has some speculation about new possible locations in Catalonia for Season 6 shooting.
Alejo Cuervo, editor for Ediciones Gigamesh who also happens to know George R. R. Martin personally, had the following exchange with an interviewer on El Mon RAC1 radio station.
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
If it isn’t the case, maybe we should send the Night’s King of the White Walkers after George?
