    Martin publishes chapter from new GOT book


    AUTHOR George R.R. Martin has released a chapter from a yet-unpublished book in the Game Of Thrones series - the basis of the hit HBO TV show - but says he is not done writing.

    "You want to know what the Sand Snakes, Prince Doran, Areo Hotah, Ellaria Sand, Darkstar and the rest will be up to in Winds Of Winter? Quite a lot, actually," Martin, 67, wrote in a blog post late on Tuesday. "The sample will give you a taste. For the rest, you will need to wait."

    The text from the sixth book in the series follows the journey of Arianne, daughter of Doran Martell, to the castle of Mistwood that is the home of the Mertyns. Her character has not appeared in the TV series.

    The author noted that the sample chapter does not mean he has finished writing the book.
