The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring aren’t going to conclude Game of Thrones like HBO’s television series adaptation.
Predictable, but now official. The American author George RR Martin does not intend to follow the storyline of the series Game Of Thrones created by David Benioff and DB Weiss to finalize the writing of The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring: “I’ve been working a lot of time in my winter garden lately… As for a gardener, things pivot and change. New ideas appear, old ones turn out to be impractical, I write, I rewrite, I tear everything up and I rewrite again, I break down doors that are dead ends, and others that lead to wonders. It sounds crazy, I know. But that’s how I work. This has always been the case. And it always will be. For better and for worse. What I’ve noticed lately, however, is that my gardening (referring to his writing work) is taking me ever further away from the TV series. Yes, some of the things you may have seen in Game of Thrones on HBO will also be in the novels (albeit in a different way)…but a lot of it will be totally different.”
I have done a lot of interviews over the years, more than even I can possibly keep track of. Inevitably, a lot of them touch on the same subjects. One of the things I have been asked about most is my writing process… https://t.co/yD9QrI6qXP

George RR Martin already knows that the end of Game of Throne in novel will create discord on the social networks like the end of the TV series, especially because some deaths won’t be confirmed, while some living characters will be killed off: “Undoubtedly, once I’m done, there will be a huge debate over which version of the story is better. Some people will like this new ending, others will prefer the HBO one. And that’s fine, you pay with your money and you make your choice. (I fear that a certain proportion of fans are so angry at the time the winds have taken me that they are ready to hate the book, without reading it. It saddens me, but I can’t do anything about it , if not write the best book possible, and hope that when it comes out, most fans will read it with clean hands and open minds). That’s all I can tell you for now. I have to go back to the garden. Tyrion is waiting for me.“
