George R.R. Martin has shared some new information about the next book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, which inspired the HBO show Game of Thrones. As expected, it’s about to get bloody. Speaking at an event at the Freemason’s Hall in London, Martin said:
“The way my books are structured, everyone was together, then they all went their separate ways and the story deltas out like that,” Martin explained, “and now it’s getting to the point where the story is beginning to delta back in, and the viewpoint characters are occasionally meeting up with each other now and being in the same point at the same time, which gives me a lot more flexibility for killing people.”
Flexibility for killing people is always nice.
