Varley just submitted the final draft of Irontown Blues, hopes to have it out by this fall.

Fantastic!

Any word on Gerrold's "A Method For Madness"?

I'm given to understand that substantial parts of it exist. Gerrold may be waiting for another shipment of round tuits.

Happy news!

Per the subject line, thank you for that! Varley never quite lived up to his early promise, but even in his long dotage, he knows how to tell a story!

Or possibly Half-Life 3.

My guess is, GRRM's in more or less the same place Valve Software right now: a newish, highly successful business model that, really, doesn't require them to create more content.

That was my thought. The minute I heard that the TV show plotting would surpass him, I pegged the chance he'd actually complete the book series at low-to-extremely-low.

He will never finish. He doesn't know how to finish anything this big -- all he ever does is grow it, and grow it badly. he doesn't possess the writer skills to do anything else that has gotten this big. He couldn't even finish a trilogy, so on and on and on it expanded laterally -- but never making any actual progress.

Anyhow, the television series will have done it for him, so he's doesn't even have that slight incentive to finish to learn for himself how it comes out.

I'm beginning to wonder if Weber is having the same problem with the Honor Harrington books, that it's grown beyond his skillset to maintain.

And now GRRM is involved in four spinoffs from GoT. To say he is in over his head is a disservice to those in over their heads.

Today it is announced the 4 spin-offs have become 5 spin-offs, because four aren't enough, obvs, to keep him from having to even THINK about finishing the series.

That's all folks.

The Honor Harrington books reached their intended, long-planned conclusion with the Battle of Manticore, at which Honor was originally planned to die, quite some time ago.

The subsequent plot is just a little out of scope for a work of fiction.

Whiny GRRM fans are lightweights; try reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series sometime.

Twenty-two years, with an eleven-year phase in the middle where the only "new" books consisted almost entirely of flashbacks and filling in character backstory.
