Still, followers will certainly be glad about Martin’s affirmation, in addition to what else he needed to say concerning the potential collection.
“I do need to level out that “moving closer to a pilot order” is NOT the identical factor as “getting a pilot order.”” Martin added. “Would that it were.

“We talk about the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros; there were Seven Kingdoms at the time of Aegon’s Conquest,” franchise creator George R.R. Martin defined again in July. “But if you go back further then there are nine kingdoms, and 12 kingdoms, and eventually you get back to where there are a hundred kingdoms — petty kingdoms — and that’s the era we’re talking about here.”
