New Game of Thrones Book Coming This Year… But It’s a Coloring Book

Fans of George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire have been waiting for a new book for four years, and they are going to get one this fall! However, the new book probably won’t give us any updates on the fates of Stannis, Sansa, Jon, and the rest, as it will be a coloring book. The book, which will be overseen by George R. R. Martin, will feature 45 ASOIAF images drawn by Yvonne Gilbert, John Howe, Tomislav Tomic, Adam Stower, and Levi Pinfold. No word yet on what the images will be, but if they are true to the books they should include plenty of beheadings, dragon fire, zombies, and wolf attacks.
If you can’t wait until October, you can color ASOIAF images online on the free (and unofficial) gameofthronescoloringbook.com. (Above image taken from there.)
So, while book readers may have to accept that the TV adaptation Game of Thrones will officially pass the books, they can at least soothe their anger by drawing some scales on a few dragons.
