I f George RR Martin could be granted one wish, it would be for more time. The bestselling author of the Song of Ice and Fire saga, the books that became television phenomenon Game of Thrones , is in London for a talk with historian Dan Jones about his most recent work, Fire and Blood , an imagined history of the Targaryen family the all-conquering ancestors of dragon queen Daenerys , before heading to the science-fiction event Worldcon in Dublin. Yet, at the back of his mind, is the work still to come. The Winds of Winter , the sixth and penultimate book in Ice and Fire, has to be finished and the seventh, A Dream of Spring , to be written.

Martin, pages. A new original series, now on HBO. Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. Now, in a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, troub George R. Martin, a writer of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination, has created a landmark of fantasy f
He began the first volume of the series, A Game of Thrones , in , and it was published in Martin, who initially envisioned the series as a trilogy, has published five out of a planned seven volumes. The fifth and most recent volume of the series, A Dance with Dragons , was published in and took Martin six years to write. He is currently writing the sixth novel, The Winds of Winter. The point of view of each chapter in the story is a limited perspective of a range of characters growing from nine in the first novel, to 31 characters by the fifth novel. Three main stories interweave: a dynastic war among several families for control of Westeros, the rising threat of the supernatural Others in northernmost Westeros, and the ambition of Daenerys Targaryen , the deposed king's exiled daughter, to assume the Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones would've been very different if George R. Martin had stuck to his original plan for his A Song of Ice and Fire book series. The TV show and books present two different versions of the same story, with Game of Thrones massively expediting things in order to get to to the finish line, something Martin himself still hasn't managed. However, things could've been even more different for the TV show - if it happened at all - if Martin had gone with his original ideas. He's well-known for shifting things and finding the story as he moves along, but some of his initial plans for the series that became Game of Thrones would've made things unrecognizable. George R. Martin first started working on A Game of Thrones , the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire , back in when, as per the author himself, the vision of a young boy seeing a man beheaded and finding wolf pups in the snow popped into his head.
