George R. R. Martin: a teaser chapter to The Winds of Winter

The brilliant and clearly publicity savvy George R. R. Martin has given us a New Year’s gift…an advance chapter of The Winds of Winter.  One of these days (soon I hope…wishful thinking here people) this chapter will figure into book 6 in his A Song of Fire and Ice series, which I warn you is seriously addictive.  I literally devoured A Dance With Dragons, book 5 in the series, after waiting five long years for Martin to complete it. Of course, it’s a bit of a tease, but so irresistible given that it is a chapter on one of his most intriguing characters, Theon Greyjoy whom I have loved, loathed, pitied, detested, and then began to respect anew. That’s the kind of author Martin is…one who knows how create not only rich characters that you are willing to follow over the course of many books, but also rich stories that are worth waiting years for.
