George R.R. Martin Finishes Latest 'Game of Thrones' Book While Self-Isolating!

One good thing has come out of the coronavirus – the latest Game of Thrones book is done!

Author George R.R. Martin took to his blog on Tuesday (March 17) to reveal that he has finally finished “The Winds of Winter,” the sixth installment of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, which began with “A Game of Thrones” in 1991.

“Truth be told, I am spending more time in Westeros than in the real world, writing every day,” the 71-year-old author wrote. “Things are pretty grim in the Seven Kingdoms… but maybe not as grim as they may become here.”

George went on to say that he’s been focused on writing and finishing the book as he’s been self-isolating during the outbreak.

“For those of you who may be concerned for me personally… yes, I am aware that I am very much in the most vulnerable population, given my age and physical condition,” George shared. “But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions. I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff, and I’m not going in to town or seeing anyone.”

The most recent novel in his fantasy series was “A Dance with Dragons,” which was released in 2011.

“The Winds of Winter” does not have a release date yet.
