I think at this point it's blatantly obvious that GRRM is *actively* trying to avoid finishing ASOIF.
Well, fans of the novels(Song of Ice and Fire) who suffered through the last few seasons of Game of Thrones will unfortunately have some of the major plot details already spoiled, even if somehow GRRM survives to finish the novels.
I seriously get the feeling that he has no desire or real plan to finish the novels well, in spite of whatever 'outline' information he gave to the show runners/writers.
Add in the MILLIONS of dollars getting tossed at him for shows and games now, vs comparative chicken feed from the novels... I can't see him mustering up the drive to finish even if he wanted to.
Oh well, another series of novels dies with a fading whimper.
It's a shame but it's happened quite a lot for these epic mult-novel series, honestly.
