If you don't want spoilers, I would recommend not reading George R.R. Martin's just-released new preview chapter for "The Winds of Winter," the forthcoming sixth entry in the fantasy author's bestselling "A Song of Ice and Fire" series on which HBO's "Game of Thrones" is based. Of course if you're here, you already know that!

A little lead-up: the new chapter takes the point of view of Sansa Stark (a.k.a. "Alayne") and is Martin's attempt at preempting the character's storyline on "GoT," which will be different from Sansa's arc in the book series.

And he got it out just in time: "Game of Thrones" Season 5 premieres April 12 on HBO.
