Game of Thrones Series May Stretch to 8 Novels

By Jacob Klein on Jul 27, 2011 to Game of Thrones

George RR Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of which HBO’s Game of Thrones is derived, recently told The Atlantic that it may take eight novels to complete his magnum opus as opposed to the previously expected seven.  Bearing in mind that each of these novels are well over 800 pages and you’ll begin to understand the breadth and depth of Martin’s beloved universe.

He says that wrapping everything up in two more books is “my plan, my intent, that’s what I’m going to try to do. But at this point, I know better than to promise anything and write it out in blood.” And he reiterates that the series was originally planned as just a trilogy, and it’s grown quite a bit since then.
