George R. R. Martin Reveals New Chapter from THE WINDS OF WINTER


George R.R. Martin has revealed another chapter from the next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter.  Yesterday, on his blog, Martin announced he would be revealing an excerpt soon and here’s what he had to say about it:

The new chapter is actually an old chapter.  But no, it’s not one I’ve published or posted before, and I don’t even think I’ve read it at a con (could be wrong there, I’ve done readings at so many cons, it all tends to blur together).  So it’s new in that it is material that no one but my editors (well, and Parris, and David and Dan, and a few others) have ever seen before, but it’s old in that it was written a long time ago, predating any of the samples that you have seen.  The first draft was, at any rate.  I’ve rewritten it a dozen times since then.

The chapter is titled “Mercy” and can be found in its entirety on Martin’s blog HERE!
