GAME OF THRONES CREATOR GEORGE R.R. MARTIN RELEASES SURPRISING NEW BOOK CHAPTER

<> at Jean Cocteau Theater on February 23, 2016 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
**SPOILERS AHEAD** George R.R. Martin gave his readers a treat by updating his personal blog with a new chapter from the yet-to-be-completed sixth installment of his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter.  The chapter focuses on the Dorne storyline — The Sand Snakes and a not-murdered Prince Doran — and deviates quite a lot from the current Dorne storyline featured on Game of Thrones’  season six. Despite the new chapter, Martin insists that the book is definitely not finished and still very much a work in progress.
