When will George R. R. Martin get cracking?

It looks as though Martin might be saying, "Soon, I'll have soon," but he's really just welcoming folks to his restored movie house.
It looks as though Martin might be saying, “Soon, I’ll have it soon,” but in fact he’s welcoming folks to his restored movie house.

We just have to be patient, I guess. According to this recent interview on NPR with author Martin, the sixth installment in the hugely popular fantasy series A Song of Fire and Ice (aka Game of Thrones), “Winds of Winter,” is getting written albeit slowly. Part of the reason is Martin’s involvement in many other projects dear to his heart, especially the restoration of the Jean Cocteau, an old movie house in Santa Fe, NM. He’s also reviewing the latest episodes of Breaking Bad, editing a sci-fi series and writing a novella. With fans and HBO network execs grumbling about the long wait for book six, Martin admits to feeling the pressure, “Laying railroad track with the locomotive coming up behind you … you better lay it faster,” Martin says. “And that is the feeling I have right now. The locomotive in this case, of course, is not just the books but the TV show, which is moving along much faster than I’m laying the tracks.” The word is that the book is due out next year with one more book to follow.
