Fans of the Game Of Thrones books are in for a treat after the editor of George R R Martin's books hinted that the author could be writing an eighth book.

Recalling her conversation about the number of books that were going to be in the fantasy series, Anne Groell revealed during a Q&A on Suvudo Universe:

"Seven 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. 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 and when Aegon the Conqueror landed in Westeros."

Hinting at the future of the books, Anne continued: "If so, maybe eight books for Seven Kingdoms would be okay. Also, he has promised me that, when he finally wraps this great beast, I can publish the five page letter outlining the bare bones of the trilogy.”


Meanwhile, the UK publisher for Martin's books appeared more coy on the subject of more than seven books.

Speaking to The Guardian, the publisher revealed that only Martin knows how many books he's going to write, but it could end up being the original seven if the writer continues to kill off characters.
