„Game Of Thrones“: 6. Staffel startet vor Buchveröffentlichung


„Game Of Thrones“-Autor George R. R. Martin veröffentlichte einen Blogbeitrag, in dem er erzählt, dass er leider die (zweite) Deadline zur Abgabe des sechsten Buches seiner Fantasy-Reihe verpasst hat. Martin hatte gehofft, das Manuskript bis zum Jahresende seinem Verlag übergeben zu können, damit die nächste Folge der erfolgreichen Fantasy-Saga Anfang des neuen Jahres gedruckt werden könnte. Damit gibt es das Abenteuer mit Staffel sechs im April im Fernsehen zu sehen, obwohl es das Buch dazu noch nicht im Handel gibt.

Martin schreibt: „Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. You’re disappointed, and you’re not alone. My editors and publishers are disappointed, HBO is disappointed, my agents and foreign publishers and translators are disappointed… but no one could possibly be more disappointed than me. For months now I have wanted nothing so much as to be able to say, „I have completed and delivered ‚THE WINDS OF WINTER'“ on or before the last day of 2015. I blew the Halloween deadline, and I’ve now blown the end of the year deadline. And that almost certainly means that no, „The Winds of Winter“ will not be published before the sixth season of Game of Thrones premieres in April.“

Natürlich wirft das Fragen nach Spoilern auf. Martin behandelt das Thema auf seinem Blog. Frage: „Will the show ’spoil‘ the novels?“ Antwort: „Maybe. Yes and no. Look, I never thought the series could possibly catch up with the books, but it has. The show moved faster than I anticipated and I moved more slowly. There were other factors too, but that was the main one. Given where we are, inevitably, there will be certain plot twists and reveals in season six of „Game Of Thrones“ that have not yet happened in the books. For years my readers have been ahead of the viewers. This year, for some things, the reverse will be true. How you want to handle that… hey, that’s up to you.“
