Kinnaj asks:

Before 1 January 2022, will a release date for The Winds of Winter be announced by the author and/or publisher?

The Winds of Winter is the sixth novel in the fantasy series that inspired HBO's Game of Thrones (Rotten Tomatoes). There has been talk that the book could be released soon, though similar claims have been made in the past (NY Times, Express, Entertainment Weekly).
