The author who is famous for killing so many characters finds it offensive when asked about his own death!
So you think “Game of Thrones” author George R. R. Martin is getting older? And you are also concerned that Martin might pass away before he can finish writing his books? Well, if you do the author got a very clear message for you: “Fuck you.”
“I find that question pretty offensive, people speculating about my death and my health,” said Martin in a recent interview with Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger. “So fuck you to those people.”
As if the 65-year-old author wasn’t satisfied with his brilliant response, he held up a middle finger with all the ice-cold fury to make his feelings tremendously clear.
Martin is best known for A Song of Ice and Fire, his international bestselling series of epic fantasy novels that HBO adapted for its dramatic series Game of Thrones.
Martin has been slaving away on the sixth novel “The Winds of Winter” for some time now. However, he is still to offer fans any firm release date for what is thought to be the penultimate work in the series.
“I need to write faster. The last two books took a really long time, so I’m hoping this one [the Winds of Winter] will go a little faster,” Martin recently told Mashable.
But he was quick to add, “I make no promises. I found out long ago that when you look at the overall task, the cathedral you have to build, it looks so daunting that you just give up and sit down and play a video game.”
We wish all the best for Martin’s artistic output.
