First it was supposed to be done in 2014. Then 2015. Then 2017. The book, which Martin has predicted could total 1,500 pages at least, has seen so many delays that fans had long given up ever seeing the series finished. But now Martin is holed up in his home with his many side projects put on hold, and the author says that he is returning to Westeros.
