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.

    If I see another terrible Superman anything this year my heart will break 🙁

    Nobody cares about powerless Kryptonians…

    If it’s on Syfy it’ll be 30 minutes of show and 30 minutes of commercials.

  • No autoplay please. I thought we learned this lesson in the MySpace days.

    From the writer of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman, comes some dumb idea about a planet whose most relevant contribution to the mythos was blowing up. Look you can do something like this in comics because they’re cheap, short and disposable. A tv show? It’s just gonna drag on and ON about how “this planet has a destiny” and bla bla bla bla… And it’s by a writer whose been made VERY clear to have no business writing about Superman. Twice.

      Lay money that they will copy Supergirl and push the concept that the reason the planet blew up was due to environmental damage caused by the people living there. Because bad things only happen in nature when Man get involved.
