Well this falls into the realm of good news for A Song Of Fire And Ice fans! The fantasy novel series Written by George RR Martin may in fact receive and extra installment, which would debunk the current plan for only seven books. Anne Groell, editor of the series, recently answered fan questions via Suvudu.com when Groell made the indication of an additional story to tell,
"I begin to wonder—though 7 is what we currently have under contract. I remember when he called me, years and years back, to confess that his little trilogy was…well…no longer a trilogy. He predicted four books. I said Seven Books for Seven Kingdoms. Then he said five books. I said Seven Books for Seven Kingdoms. Then he went to six. I said… Well, you get it. Finally, we were on the same page. Seven Books for Seven Kingdoms. Good." Groell went on to add; "Only, as I recently learned while editing THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE (another awesome thing you must buy when it comes out!), there are really technically eight kingdoms, all having to do with who has annexed what when Aegon the Conqueror landed in Westeros. So, maybe eight books for Seven Kingdoms would be okay."
While this doesn't serve as an official confirmation or commitment to an eighth volume, it does provide a glimmer of hope that the series will live on for years to come. Would you want the series to continue or is seven a fitting number?
