What s next for Game of Thrones?

The author, whose work was adapted into the HBO series that drew a record-setting numbers of viewers for Sunday s finale, says it s been a wild ride. George RR Martin wrote on Monday that it was an ending, but it was also a beginning.

The 70-year-old says he s working on the next installment, The Winds of Winter. He says he knows it s late but it will be done. He s just not saying when. He says A Dream of Spring will follow.

Martin says he hears people asking will it have the same ending as the show or will it be different.

Martin writes: Well. yes. And no. He says he ll write it, people can read it and then everyone can argue about it on the internet.
