Has George RR Martin finished book six in the Game of Thrones series?

Fans of the series have been waiting impatiently for the sixth instalment of George RR Martin's A Song Of Ice and Fire series.

For all fans of George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, the author recently teased the release date of Winds of Winter, the sixth and penultimate book in his epic saga.

The author’s last work was released in 2011 and apparently he is yet to finish his next instalment yet.

While George R.R. Martin is notorious for taking his time when writing his Game Of Thrones series, the release date for The Winds Of Winter is not set in stone but it has been theorised that could possibly be released to coincide with the final series of the HBO show based on his books.

While this is nothing but a disappointment to die-hard fans but many opine that the longer he takes, the better the next chapter in his magnum opus will be.

George revealed in a blog post that he was planning on giving himself a lot of time to write in 2017 – and according to AV Club, the notoriously sneaky author hinted he may have finally finished the book.

But the author recently addressed rumours that he was finished with the fantasy novel, writing on his blog: “I am still working on it, I am still months away.”

He’s also working on a Westerosi encyclopedia, called Fire and Blood, at the same time.

However, George has whipped up a Thrones frenzy by teasing a very vague release date on his blog.

He wrote: “I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018… and who knows, maybe two. A boy can dream.”

It will be interesting to see how the books and series pan out from now as there are characters in the novel who still live and yet others who were never featured in the series at all.
