there will be 7 books, so far Martin has 5 out and the 6th "Winds of Winter and then the 7th book "Dreams of Spring" are coming out who knows, he beats around the bush A LOT!!! I for one have wanted the nest installmet forever... i bought all the others on the day they released and finished them within days. I think the 5th was released June of 2011 so it has been a longgggg wait.. they're great books!!! as for the seasons on hbo, well i originally heard 7 seasons, a year for each installment of the book.. but i have read more then once now that the producers want to push for 8-9 seasons if the fan base stays true and hbo keeps want the VERY $$$$ series back for more. I read that they would simply stretch say season 5-6 for the book 5.. with as much material as the books have it can easily be done, the paperback reaching a 1000 pages for most. A Game of Thrones (1996) A Clash of Kings (1998) A Storm of Swords (2000) A Feast for Crows (2005) A Dance with Dragons (2011) The Winds of Winter (forthcoming) A Dream of Spring (forthcoming) He is 65 years old, what if he god forbids dies before he writes the last installmenthttp://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/cry.gif.. sheeshhh.http://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/sweat.gif Your comment had me thinking: I bet you he sold his soul to write a world-renowned, bestselling series of books; a chronicle that would put him down in history as one of the greatest writers if all time BUT: the trade off was that he would die after the final book was written/published (which is why he's taking his sweet time). WHAT IF?!http://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/huffy.gif your theory is Little Finger did the deed with Joff and great theory, he crossed my mind back when I read the book... your reasoning is his love for Cat, and that is actually pretty great. I don't have a theory as much as a feeling .. I think Varys did it... watch the truth come out in the 7th installment (fingers crossed it gets written) that the sneaky eunuch did it for the good of the realm!http://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/biggrin.gifhttp://www.solarmovie.tl/js/jquery-bbedit/smiley/shocked.gif[/quote] It will be revealed in next week's episode. There was a little snippet of the poisoner justifying their actions in the trailer for episode 3. If you watch the wedding celebration closely, you'll see the deed being done. I've read the books so I was looking for it.
That guy definitely has star quality. Perhaps he'd be interested in becoming a double act with a talented young performer I represent on Broadway? http://media2.giphy.com/media/WYyIFSnodRtUk/200.gif Other blue eyed stars http://www.marieclaire.com/cm/marieclaire/images/0I/reese-witherspoon-covershoot-1011-17-mdn.jpg http://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_md763sv90N1qbsbnoo1_500.jpg Ok maybe Clint's aren't blue
