If you’re holding your breath until The Winds of Winter is finished, welp – you’re going to have to keep holding (sorry).

George R.R. Martin, though still not finished with the sixth installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, has graciously thrown us a tiny bone with a new Game of Thrones story coming out this year.

The author’s new story – a never-before-released history of Westeros – will be appearing in a new anthology book: The Book of Swords.

We hope the Republicans have insurance for these burns.

Amazon, which is on a product-release tear, revealed on Tuesday its latest Echo device, the roughly 8 x 8-inch, 2 and a half pound, 7-inch-screen-sporting Echo Show.
