2011 was a watershed year for author George R.R. Martin.  He saw his Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels become of the most talked about TV series of the year with HBO’s ‘A Game of Thrones.’  The fourth novel in the ASOIF series, ‘A Dance with Dragons,’ shot to the top of the best seller charts.

Now fans have can get their first taste of the next volume in the series, ‘The Winds of Winter.”  Martin has posted a sample chapter on his website.

The king’s voice was choked with anger.  “You are a worse pirate than Salladhor Saan.”
Theon Greyjoy opened his eyes.  His shoulders were on fire and he could not move his hands.  For half a heartbeat he feared he was back in his old cell under the Dreadfort, that the jumble of memories inside his head was no more than the residue of some fever dream. I was asleep, he realized.  That, or passed out from the pain.  When he tried to move, he swung from side to side, his back scraping against stone.  He was hanging from a wall inside a tower, his wrists chained to a pair of rusted iron rings.
