Watch George R.R. Martin Read The Winds Of Winter

Winter Is Coming

We’re extremely eager for the start of HBO’s Game of Thrones Season 2 on Sunday but if you’re also a fan of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, you may find this of interest. It’s a video from TIFF Bell LightBox in which the author waxes poetic about his work but also reads an excerpt from his sixth novel in the series, The Winds of Winter.

The reading begins around the 30-minute mark of this particular video which is part three. You can also watch part one and part two, if you’re so inclined.

Also, yah!, he’s working on the book!
