New, From George R.R. Martin

Rogues MartingGeorge R.R. Martin’s name on a new book is likely to get fans’ hearts racing. The new issue of People magazine features just that, Rogues, but it may not be what fans are hoping for. It’s a collection of stories edited by Martin, that includes a new Game of Throne story. In the accompanying interview, Martin addresses the inevitable question — yes, he is at work on Book Six in his A Song of Fire and Ice series, titled Winds of Winter, but puts off questions of when it will be finished by joking, “if it’s late I’m blaming it on you!”

Reporters aren’t giving him much time to write. The new issue of the Rolling Stone includes the results of a 10-hour interview with the author.

Also in the anthology, a story by another author under pressure to produce her next book, Gillian Flynn. In a recent Reddit chat, she told fans she is working on “a big, sprawling American folkloric tale of murder” and after that, a YA novel.

George R. R. Martin, Rogues, edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois; Original stories by Gillian Flynn, Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, and a new Song of Ice and Fire story by George R. R. Martin, RH/Bantam, coming June 17.
