2017 is going to be a very good year for fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones, as there’s going to be plenty of material all year long.

The show’s 7th season airs this year, and writer George R.R. Martin is expected to release two books this year.

The first is the much-delayed sixth book in the series, titled The Winds Of Winter. The second is a surprise short story, titled Book Of Swords.

The book contains “Fifteen original tales celebrating fantasy’s golden age of sword and sorcery, including a new story from George R. R. Martin set in the world of ‘A Game of Thrones’,” according to CNET.

Book of Swords is set to be released on the 10th of October.

Martin is however not fully sure if The Winds of Winter will be released this year. “I think it will be out this year,” he said on his blog. “But hey, I thought the same thing last year.”
