Here Is The Cover Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Author George R. R. Martin’s New Book

BUT, it's not the book you're hoping for

The cover of George R.R. Martin‘s newest book has been unveiled but, alas, this new book is not the one that fans have been waiting years for. Martin owes us the next installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series but is not yet ready to release it. Instead, he is ready to bring us a coffee table book titled The World of Ice & Fire that contains “lots of stunning artwork, and tons of fake history”. GoT fans will likely snap up copies of this book as soon as it hits stores but, damnit, I want the next installment of the GoT book series. More »

‘House’ Hunting

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Edward for a fun dinner hang/catch up at The Hudson in West Hollywood where we were met but a group of his really fun friends. Dinner was great because not only did Edward and I get to catch up with one another but I also got to meet and hang out with his fun theater friends. The Hudson is one of my fave places so I had a blast. I spent the rest of my evening doing a bit of reading. I dug out one of my all-time favorite books, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, for another re-read and was reminded how much I love this book. House of Leaves doesn’t come in e-book format so I had to read it old school … in actual book form. More »

First Look: This Is What The Cover Of George R. R. Martin’s New Book ‘The Winds Of Winter’ Looks Like

'Winter' is Coming

Last week we learned that the first chapter of George R. R. Martin‘s new book The Winds of Winter has been released ahead of the book’s publication and today we get, not only, to see the book cover for Winds of Winter but we also learn that another chapter of the book has been released. Martin has been sharing excerpts from the book on one of his official websites (his Livejournal, actually) and has announced that a new chapter is out.

Anne Rice Resumes ‘The Vampire Chronicles’ With The Release Of Her Next Book

'Prince Lestat'

After the huge success of her series of vampire novels based around her iconic character Lestat, Anne Rice decided to put aside that part of her work so that she could focus on more religious subject matter for her books. She wrote about the life of Jesus Christ and wrote novels about angels but I always hoped that she would return to the supernatural subject matter that she always wrote so well. In recent years, Rice has written about werewolves and I guessed that she may, one day, return to the world of vampires. Last night, on her son Christopher Rice‘s weekly podcast The Dinner Party Show, Anne Rice revealed to the world that she is releasing a new chapter in her Vampire Chronicles. The new novel, Prince Lestat, will be out this October! More »

E.L. James Teases The Possibility Of A 4th Book In The ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Series

I'm gonna guess that more books are on the way

Author E.L. James was asked by a fan on Twitter if she is planning to write a 4th book to follow her hugely successful Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and altho she did not officially confirm that a new book may be on the way, she teased the possibility enough to give fans something to pin their hopes on. With a major motion picture adaptation on the way and continued brisk book sales of the original books, I have a very good feeling that plans are in the works to carry on the Fifty Shades franchise for some time to come. Click below to read what James had to say about the possibility of a new Fifty Shades book. More »
