No, George R.R. Martin Hasn’t Finished The Song Of Ice And Fire Books Yet

Theories abound about George R.R. Martin’s plans for the Song of Ice and Fire series, and therefore the Game of Thrones series, but Martin says that the most ridiculous theory of all is that he’s actually finished with the last two books of the series and is sitting on them to create demand. At the 92nd Street Y event for the release of the World of Ice and Fire companion book to the series, Martin said:

“From my point of view, the craziest one is the people who believe that I’ve actually finished all of the books, and I’m just sitting on them for some reason in order to get more money or increase the value, you know, to release them an appropriate point. That’s a pretty crazy one, but there seem to be people who actually believe that.”

“Game of Thrones” superfans, start saving your coins! For a mere $20,000, A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin will name a character after you in an upcoming book from the series … with the promise that you’ll meet a “grisly death.” Sweet! You can even dictate what your character does — though the manner of death will have to come as a surprise. That $20K will go to a good cause too; Martin is crowdfunding for the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, two Santa Fe-based organizations. If $20K is too rich for your blood, you could donate $7,500 and get one of Martin’s beloved and well-worn fisherman’s caps. And if you can only donate $20, that’s great too — plus, all donors will be entered into a drawing, with one winner receiving a tour of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary from Martin himself. Dude, if I won that, I would be so excited I’d instantly make water in my smallclothes. [Business Insider]

George R. R. Martin Distances Himself From That “Game Of Thrones” Rape Scene (But I’m Not Done Ranting)

George R. R. Martin Distances Himself From That "Game Of Thrones" Rape Scene (But I'm Not Done Ranting)

If you still haven’t seen Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones,” stop right here, as there are spoilers ahead and besides, you need to get on that shit. 

George R. R. Martin, the author of the “Game of Thrones” series, A Song of Ice and Fire, has weighed in on Sunday’s controversial episode, in which Jaime Lannister raped (yes, raped) his sister Cersei in a scene that was a distinct and obvious departure from the way he had originally written it. As I wrote yesterday, the scene in the book features consensual if icky sex between the blonde siblings, who’d long been lovers, as they mourned the death of their son, King Joffrey. On the show, however, Jaime very clearly rapes Cersei, as she struggles, says “no” and “stop” repeatedly. The assault was seemingly out of character for Jaime, given the way the books/show had worked to humanize him, and not only presents major problems for the character’s trajectory, as far as I’m concerned, but kills the sexual chemistry between him and Cersei (something I quite enjoyed). And all any of us who found the scene horrifying and disappointing have been able to ask is WHY? Seriously, WHYYYYYY?

Martin weighed in on his blog, posting the following thoughtful if distancing point of view on what the show producers/directors might have been thinking: Keep reading »

"You knew about this?!"

God I love George R. R. Martin, creator of the “Game Of Thrones” book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The bearded longshoreman-esque super nerd appeared on “Conan” last night to discuss the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” in which three major characters were slaughtered in a scene best described as totally fucking gruesome. Martin can’t help but giggle as he watches the various fan reactions posted on YouTube. Such an adorable sadist he is!

After the jump, Martin talks about why he likes to kill off beloved characters, though he admits it’s gotten harder since he’s gotten to know the actors who play them on the TV show. Keep reading »
