Games of Thrones author George RR Martin has revealed he is spending lockdown writing the next book in the fantasy series while holed up in a "cabin in the mountains".

The 71-year-old told fans in a blog post that he hopes The Winds of Winter will be finished "next year".

This book will be the sixth in his series A Song of Ice and Fire.

Set in the fantasy kingdom of Westeros and its environs, peopled by warring factions, occasional dragons and direwolves, the bestselling fantasy series was adapted by HBO into the television series Game of Thrones.

Although the television storyline concluded a year ago, fans have been waiting for The Winds of Winter, the penultimate book in the series before A Dream of Spring, since the publication of A Dance With Dragons in 2011.
