Will ‘Nightflyers’ Delay ‘Winds Of Winter’ Release?

Recently the writer announced on his blog that SyFy channel has given green signal to “Nightflyers” pilot, says Heavy. The source says that the series will be based on the novel by Martin released in 1980. It is a sci-fi horror story. Although it is good news, fans are worried that this may distract the attention of Martin from “Winds of Winter” and the book will be delayed further.

However, Martin will not be a part of televising “Nightflyers” as he is bound by his exclusive contract with HBO and hence cannot be a part of the development process.
