‘Game of Thrones’ Editor Hints at Possible Eighth Book

Game of Thrones” fans will be happy to hear that George R.R. Martin — the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” books that are the basis for the HBO series — may not stop at seven books for seven kingdoms.

Martin’s book editor, Anne Groell, revealed that the author may just write another installment of the series.

During a Q&A on Suvudu, a fan asked Groell if she thinks Martin will be able to finish the story in just seven books.

“I begin to wonder–though seven [books] 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,” said Groell.“Only, as I recently learned while editing ‘The World of Ice and Fire,’ 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,” she said.
