Tower of the Hand

Editor: ADWD Finished Soon

Over at the Terry Brooks Forum, Shawn Speakman reports from Comic-Con, where GRRM's editor Anne Groell says she expects to get the final draft of A Dance with Dragons by October or November. Here's the relevant passage:

George has indeed passed the 1000 page mark as of last week and those are, to him according to Anne, finished pages that will not be returned to. He also has several hundred more pages of not completed chapters that every week he makes progress on. Some of those will be in Dance; others will be in the next book. Anne also thinks she'll be getting the book by October or November, which to her would probably make it a February or March 2010 release, although the progress he is making is quickly happening and she could receive it sooner if those incomplete or mostly complete chapters come together faster.

This basically confirms what GRRM has said recently, but it's good to see another source on his progress. (via Keeping the Door)
