"The Winds of Winter" latest theories now point to a June release date. Patient fans need not to wait any further as the highly anticipated sixth novel of "A Song of Ice and Fire" is allegedly almost ready to come out.
George R.R. Martin is speculated to have tugged along another renowned writer to help finish the long-delayed "The Winds of Winter." Reports now circulate that "American Gods" author Neil Gaiman was asked by GRRM to help complete the sixth novel of "ASoIF."
Furthermore, speculations also say that the completion of "TWoW" will progress faster now. Apparently, Neil Gaiman is reportedly doing the editing of "TWoW" too.
The theory was further strengthened when Neil Gaiman was allegedly spotted at the house of George R.R. Martin. This seems to support the theory that the other author is indeed working on behalf of GRRM.

With the help of Neil Gaiman, fans believe that the over-delayed book can soon come out. Reports claim that "The Winds of Winter" will most likely be released in June.
Meanwhile, another theory talks about the potential plot of "The Winds of Winter." The upcoming novel is expected to continue the cliffhangers from the previous novel, "A Dance with Dragons."
Fans can recall that the fifth installment of "A Song of Ice and Fire" entails many character threads which can possibly continue in the upcoming "TWoW." In addition, "A Dance with Dragons" has only tackled few storylines which hint to progress in the next novel.
The theory stems from GRRM's statement back in 2012. Apparently, the author has mentioned that he plans to launch two great battles in the upcoming "The Winds of Winter."
George R.R. Martin detailed that he will begin a battle on the ice. The other battle he also intends to open is the battle of Slaver's Bay in Meereen.
GRRM has not released any official statement confirming Neil Gaiman's involvement in writing the highly anticipated "The Winds of Winter." These are all mere speculations that must be taken with a grain of salt.
