2018.05.23 George R. R. Martin Announces New Book
"Games of Thrones" is a TV series popular also in Japan, so Japanese readers may also be interested in the news that George R.R. Martin, author of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books which they are based upon, will be releasing a new book in November 2018. Under the title "Fire and Blood," the story is set 300 years prior to the plot of "A Song of Ice and Fire." In his blog announcement, the author stated that the publishing of the sixth sequel, "The Winds of Winter," will be delayed.

"A Song of Ice and Fire" is a fantasy series set in a world based on medieval Europe, and since the first book, "A Game of Thrones," was published in 1996, a total of five books have been released, the last in 2011. Worldwide sales of the entire series have reportedly exceeded 70 million copies, with translations into 47 languages. In Japan, the first three books were translated by Hiroyuki Okabe, books four and five by Akinobu Sakai.

Martin says in his "Not a Blog" blog that readers should enjoy the various stories of the kingdom throughout the generations in his brand new "Fire and Blood." 75 illustrations by Doug Wheatley will be included, an illustrator known for his work in "Star Wars" comics.

According to "The Great American Read" TV series website by the US Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), "A Song of Ice and Fire" series is one of "America's 100 most-loved books." Martin states that the sixth installment in his series will not be available by the end of this year. It seems like some patience is needed before fans can get their hands on the continuation of the series, but instead they will be able to take a deeper look back on the kingdom’s history this fall.
