But author George R.R. Martin answered a fan's question about the progress of the sixth book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, "The Winds of Winter," on his blog on Tuesday. He hasn't published a book in that series since 2011's "A Dance with Dragons."
"I think it will be out this year," he wrote.
