And if the DANCE announcement wasn’t enough for you (greedy bastards!), there’s a brand new HBO trailer just out.

This one is exclusive to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY and can be found on their website, here:

Lots of great new footage there, stuff that even I have never seen before. Hot damn. Hot double damn, with snow on it.

The Wall too. What more could you want???

No. Sorry. Not done yet.

I’m close, though. Watch this space. When the book is done, you will read it here.

original cover 2006

Meanwhile… there is news. Big news. The end is in sight, at long long last, and we’re close enough so that my editors and publishers at Bantam Spectra have set an actual publication date.

revised cover 2007

A DANCE WITH DRAGONS will be in your favorite bookstore on

TUESDAY, JULY 12, 2011

new cover 2009

Yes, I know. You’ve all seen publication dates before: dates in 2007, 2008, 2009. None of those were ever hard dates, however. Most of them… well, call it wishful thinking, boundless optimism, cockeyed dreams, honest mistakes, whatever you like.

This date is different. This date is real.

Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12. I hope you like it.

((For what it’s worth, the book’s a monster. Think A STORM OF SWORDS))

final cover? 2011

The dragons are coming. Prepare to dance.

And hey… thanks for waiting.
