Writing on his blog earlier this year, Martin confirmed: “The Winds of Winter is going to be a big book.
He added that he “could be bigger than A storm of swords Where A dance with dragons, the longest books in the series to date. I usually cut and trim after I’m done, but I have to finish first.
For now, future fans will just have to watch and wait.
