Read a Chapter From George R. R. Martin’s The Winds of Winter

Yes, you read that right. We hope you’ve polished off A Dance With Dragons, because series author George R. R. Martin has just posted an excerpt from The Winds of Winter, the next book in the Song of Ice and Fire series!

The excerpt is only available on the author’s site. You can read the entire text here. This excerpt contains significant spoilers. A character’s fate from Dance With Dragons is fully revealed, and a much-anticipated showdown occurs. It’s a hell of a chapter. (As for who it involves, well, hopefully the house sigil in this post gives you a clue…)

Happy near-2012!
