New Sample Chapter Coming Soon

Over at George R.R. Martin's Not a Blog he has just announced that he will be releasing yet another Winds of Winter sample chapter on his official George R.R. Martin website.

The new chapter is actually an old chapter.  But no, it's not one I've published or posted before, and I don't even think I've read it at a con (could be wrong there, I've done readings at so many cons, it all tends to blur together).  So it's new in that it is material that no one but my editors (well, and Parris, and David and Dan, and a few others) have ever seen before, but it's old in that it was written a long time ago, predating any of the samples that you have seen.  The first draft was, at any rate.  I've rewritten it a dozen times since then.

 

Anyway, I've blathered on about it long enough, I will let the text speak for itself.

Chapter title is "Mercy."

This will be our first taste of a sample chapter from The Winds of Winter without the characters name being the title of the chapter.  With that said who do you think this chapter belongs to?
