Amazon France Has a Listing for Martin’s Winds of Winter With a March 2017 Release Date

UPDATE: George R.R. Martin’s U.S. publisher Random House have issued a statement to EW about the Amazon France date making the media rounds: “As his publisher, we support George RR Martin as he works hard to finish The Winds of Winter. Any on-sale dates currently listed online for the novel are incorrect. Once we have a publication date for The Winds of Winter, the world will know.”

Previous: EW reported earlier that George R.R. Martin’s Winds of Winter, which is the sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy franchise, may be releasing in 2017 thanks to a listing on Amazon France.

The listing is still up, but doesn’t feature an image of the book. It just lists March 9, 2017 as the release date for Amazon France. It’s weird that it hasn’t been pulled yet, so it may indeed be legit. Let’s hope so considering the book is already multiple years late, and didn’t make it in time for the sixth season of Game of Thrones, so it’d be cool to get to read it before the show returns for its seventh season next summer.
