George RR Martin is one sick bastard. We know this. It’s why Game Of Thrones is so good. But I didn’t know we were dealing with ‘hide the remote’ levels of sick. Just really sick shit.
While I have never read a single page of .a Game Of Thrones book, I know plenty of people who have read every single one and have been clamoring for this book since I graduated high school. And now here we are, after months and years of hype and speculation, and rumors are swirling that Lord Neck Beard has actually FINISHED the damn thing and just hasn’t told anybody.
What a George RR Martin move that would be.
Twitter personality and Redditor BryndenBFish has been following the production of the books for years. He noticed that Martin’s latest Live Journal post, always a source of speculation on the state of the latest book (the breakdown of how New York football teams affect GRRM’s writing is impossible to deny), shows Martin in a good mood and taking on more projects while stating: “I’ve been working so much of late that I have fallen way behind in my reading (sob) and my filmgoing…”
Vanity Fair’s Joanna Robinson took it a step further and explains that Martin went dark over the last few years, skipping out on writing for the Game of Thrones TV series and most public appearances to “focus on writing Winds of Winter.” But now, Martin just announced that he’ll be executive producing the TV adaptation of sci-fi book Who Fears Death in addition to consulting on the five (5!!!) Game of Thrones spin-off shows HBO has in the works.
In other words, GRRM has some time on his hands. Why does he have time? Maybe because he’s done with Winds of Winter. Maybe, just maybe, the guy was sick of people constantly questioning what he was doing, and went on and finished A Dream of Spring as well.
Personally, I could care less about the books. I’m just tired of George RR f*cking with everybody.
