Game of Thrones Season 8 is filming, and we are still waiting for The Winds of Winter to come out. While we haven’t had much of an update on that, we know that we’re gonna be getting another book before that: Fire and Blood, which is a book about Targaryen history. We now have an interesting update on the same. Read on!
Now, we know that in a recent interview, author George R. R. Martin said that the first volume of Fire and Blood is almost finished. He also replied to another fan revealing that Volume 1 will be released before The Winds of Winter, this year. Game of Thrones fan site Los Siete Reinos has some new information about the release.
First of all, GRRM’s friend, Adam Whitehead has confirmed that Fire and Blood will be an illustrated encyclopedia:
"Yes, Fire & Blood will be illustrated." – GRRM
Aha, this is new information, I believe.

LSR also says that the book has been completed in writing, and is currently with the publishers, undergoing review and proofreading. George is apparently the sole author of Fire and Blood, with no collaborators. There is a chance some of the artwork made for A World of Ice and Fire that wasn’t used, might be seen in this book.
As far as when the book’s actual release will happen, LSR says the publishers might just churn it out in summer as soon as the proofreading and such is done, or they might set it for a better release date in the holidays, late fall or Christmas. More on that as we hear about it.
