News from the WorldCon

These last few days, GRRM has been attending this years WorldCon, and from people attending we have learned the following:

  • GRRM is still aiming for six books.
  • There are twelve chapters in A Feast for Crows which grew out of the original prologue. Seven deal with the Iron Islands and five with Dorne.
  • There’s a strong possibility that a 2-hour pilot based on GRRM’s old anthology series, Wild Cards, may be produced by Sci-Fi. If it happens, and if it does well, there’s a possibility that it’ll become a weekly series.

The schedule includes GRRM giving a 50 minute reading on Friday and taking part in two panels that day and on Saturday. Charles Vess, illustrator for the limited edition of A Storm of Swords will also be there. Perhaps he’ll bring some of the art he’s produced for the novel? One can hope!
