There will be seven books in the series, according to GRRM: 5. [i:34f4j0r5]A Dance with Dragons[/i:34f4j0r5] 6. [i:34f4j0r5]The Winds of Winter[/i:34f4j0r5] 7. [i:34f4j0r5]A Dream of Spring[/i:34f4j0r5] (formerly [i:34f4j0r5]A Time for Wolves[/i:34f4j0r5] but GRRM changed it) There will also be [i:34f4j0r5]A Song of Ice and Fire Companion[/i:34f4j0r5], co-written by GRRM and Linda and Elio from the Westeros site, likely out in late 2007 or more likely in 2008. view post

No probs. Also, the companion book will be called [i:3ccrozp4]The World of Ice and Fire[/i:3ccrozp4]. view post

any idea what the companion book is about? i mean is it a prequel or sequel? or is GRRM keeping his lips sealed? and also can you tell me where i might get this information so i don't have to bother you so much thanx for putting up with me and all my fucking questions i really do appreciate it. view post

the book is about, well, the World of Ice and Fire. Maps of Westeros, the Free Cities, the Summer Isles, etc. Heraldry and myths and legends. It's a companion book to the series, not a prequel or sequel or even an alternate universe. Also, there are a couple websites to check. www.westeros.org (has basically everything about ASOIAF, including the So Spake Martin threads which compile everything Martin's ever said about the books at signings, at cons, at dinner, over drinks, etc) www.georgerrmartin.com the mo'fficial site. view post

That sucks...I actually got Chills when I read the final was going to be "A Time for Wolves". In the "Graphic Novel" Edition of A Hedge Knight, there was a chapter from The Sworn Sword...are they doing a full Comic/graphic novel of that too? I love Dunk and Egg. view post

Yes, Dabel Brothers are working on an adaption of The Sworn Sword as we speak and plan to start work on A Game of Thrones soonafter. There has been a hint that the AGoT adaption may strictly be graphic novel format only (no monthly release) due to its sheer size, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. view post
