'The Mystery Knight' Release: ‘The Winds of Winter’ Still Underway; Author To Release New Book While Mum About ‘TWoW’ ProgressBy Annie De Vera
George R.R. Martin announced the graphic novel "The Mystery Knight" while keeping silent about "The Winds of Winter's" progress.
The highly acclaimed writer of "A Song of Fire and Ice" has been the subject of controversy for the delayed release of the sixth book of his hit series titled "The Winds of Winter."
Despite the delay, Martin never failed to tease the fans with his constant reminder of what to expect until the end. In fact, in the Guadalajara International Book Fair, the author again hinted something about his book, with his usual reference that "the winter is coming," and is apparent that he never intended the book to have a happy ending. Furthermore, he said that he included some 'dark chapters' in the sixth book.
Unfortunately, the author did not mention about the progress of the book. With his previous statements that he is a slow writer and with the release of his other book, it seems that fans cannot hope that the book will be released anytime soon.
With this, fans speculate that the author has been occupied with the preparations for the release of the newest addition to his masterpieces, titled "The Mystery Knight," which is why "The Winds of Winter" cannot be released just as his self-imposed schedule. The book consists of 148 graphic pages and is scheduled to be released on July 4 next year.
For those uninitiated, the book is part of "The Dunk and Egg" series, which mainly relates the events before "A Song of Ice and Fire" happened and focuses the tale of Sir Duncan the Tall and Aegon V Targaryen.
Accordingly, a lot can be expected from the book as Random House had the same creative team who worked on the comic adaptation of "The Hedge Knight" and "The Sworn Sword." Additionally, Martin referred the book as long-awaited and much anticipated one.
