George R.R. Martin PhotoAuthor George R.R. Martin has posted a new excerpt from The Winds of Winter.

Mashable reports that this piece “is told from the perspective of Sansa Stark, who is currently in hiding as Petyr Baelish (a.k.a. Littlefinger)’s bastard daughter Alayne Stone.” According to Martin’s blog post, he would have shared this excerpt on April 1st, but he “did not want it mistaken for an April Fool’s joke.”

Back in February 2015, Martin confirmed that the full book, the sixth installment of the A Song of Ice & Fire series, will not be published at any point during this year. Perhaps this new snippet will help his legions of fans (who love both the books and the Game of Thrones HBO show) better cope with the wait.
