Game Of Thrones creator George RR Martin has given hints about the ending of his books after seeing the hit series come to an end – and also said he suspects we have "not seen the last of Westeros" on TV.
The author wrote about the finale of the epic fantasy series on his blog, saying it had been "a wild ride" since his first meeting with the show's writers David Benioff and DB Weiss more than a decade ago.
He is still writing the final instalments of his series of books, A Song Of Ice And Fire, with Game Of Thrones the show having overtaken the published novels – the last one released in 2011 – in its sixth season.
Martin helped producers as they continued the story on screen and there has been much speculation about whether the ending will turn out to be true to his original vision.
In his blog post, Martin promised the sixth and seventh books, The Winds Of Winter and A Dream Of Spring, "will be done".
"I'm writing," he said. "Winter is coming, I told you, long ago… and so it is.
"The Winds Of Winter is very late, I know, I know, but it will be done. I won't say when, I've tried that before, only to burn you all and jinx myself… but I will finish it, and then will come A Dream Of Spring.

"How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different?
"Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes."
Martin said the question of which, book or TV show, would have the "real ending" was "silly".
"How about this. I'll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet."
007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.
Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.
Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.
"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.
"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.
"He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."
Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.
Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.
The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.
But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.
The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.
Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".
"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.
"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
