Fans of the Game of Thrones books haven’t been this devastated since the Red Wedding. The next book in the series, Winds of Winter won’t be coming out in 2018.

in a press release today announcing another book he’s releasing (a book no one asked for), George RR Martin confirmed the book won’t won’t be coming out anytime soon.

“No, winter is not coming… not in 2018, at least,” he wrote, according toEntertainment Weekly. “You’re going to have to keep waiting for The Winds of Winter. You will, however, be able to return to Westeros this year. I do want to stress… indeed, I want to shout… that Fire and Blood is not a novel. This is not a traditional narrative and was never intended to be… let’s call this one ‘imaginary history’ instead….As for me, I’m returning once again to The Winds of Winter.”

I’m starting to think this book is never going to come out.
