As usual, let’s start things off with ****SPOILER ALERT****!!!!
So at the end of last year, MTV Geek posted how everyone’s favorite fantasy author (not to mention the most famous person currently living in New Mexico), George R. R. Martin had put up on his blog a chapter from his unreleased sixth novel in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter. For those of you who didn’t read it, the chapter revolves around Theon Greyjoy sharing a couple LOL moments with Stannis Baratheon and company.
With the second season of Game of Thrones getting ready to kick off this Sunday on HBO, Martin must be in a happy, giving mood because he decided in a taped interview to read another scene from Winds. Below is the full interview, with the reading beginning around the 29:54 marker:
Once again Martin shows love for House Greyjoy, this time focusing on Theon’s uncle Victarion. Last we had seen of him, he was sailing across the Summer Sea in route to court an unknowing Daenerys Targaryen, and take control of her dragons using the Dragon Horn (given to him by his dirt dick brother Euron).
From Martin’s reading it sounds like the Dragon Horn could be the real deal, unlike that nerd Mance Rayder’s fake-ass Horn of Winter.
Can this book come out already? Please?
