'Game of Thrones' Author George R.R. Martin Says New Book Will Be "Very Complex"
“Going to set is a lot of fun but there’s nothing for me to do there, so I thought I better stay home and not go to Croatia; or Spain; or Belfast, Ireland,” he explained. “I still have two books to write.”
So how's it going? "I'm working on [The Winds of Winter], and I wish I'd been done four years ago, but I'm slow and the book is very complex, although there are a lot of great distractions out there" — including HBO's Emmy afterparty, which feted Game of Thrones' drama series win. Martin, 70, whose Fire and Bloodprequel drops Nov. 20, was spotted partying well past midnight.
