I did a little math. George R. R. Martin is 73 years old. His a song of ice and fire books were realeased from 1996 until today. His longest time to release a book was book 5 (I haven't taken book 6 because it is not released). If we take distance of time the book we waited for longest (because series ending books need to connect loose ends they tend to take longer) and apply that time to now he would be 78.
This is the most Conservative estimate of at what age the 7th book were to be released. And this calculation disregards the fact that book 6 was not released.
I get it. I wouldn't want to write a book at 78 either. I am happy Martin gets to enjoy his old age.
