Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

He cut the battles from the last book partly because he didn't want to exceed his self-imposed limit of no book being longer than A Storm Of Swords is.

He said recently that he's got about 200 manuscript pages of the next book written, and it'll be another 2-3 years to finish it. Assuming that book supplies another two seasons or thereabouts, that gives him a bit more time.

I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up giving the show a detailed outline of the final book and they end up coordinating the release.
