"Truth be told, I loved editing those anthologies with Gardner, and we want to do more together," he admitted, before adding "But we're not doing any of that NOW."

"The anthologies, much as I loved them, were taking too much of my time, so I stepped back from them ... until I finish THE WINDS OF WINTER, at least. Once that's done, maybe I can sneak another one in," he went on to say.

So it looks like fans will not have to worry about Martin being sidetracked from finishing "The Winds of Winter" seeing that he is looking to complete it.

He did suggest that he made some progress on the novel, not as much he expected in the given time frame. Then again, he did not provide any information on the target release date.

He suggested that “The Winds of Winter” might be released later this year, although it was not encrypted on stone.

The good news is that a lot of “Game of Thrones” including “The Book of Swords” will be released on October 10th this year.

According to some reports it is being speculated that “The Winds of Winter” might be released after the season 7 of “Games of Thrones”, which is expected to premiere in June this year.

Fans Fear that this season will further spoil the book, As R.R Martin noted that he has some astonishing twists and surprises that involve characters that are no longer alive in the “Game of Thrones” HBO adaptation, which means there will still be a lot to see.
