Often when we talk about George R.R. Martin and ‘Game of Thrones‘ it has to do with his love of killing people off, so while this is another post related to him and murder, this time he is only killing off a theory about his novels. While he tends to stay out of confirming or denying rumors about his ‘A Song Of Ice and Fire’ series, there is a pretty strong theory that has been floating around the web that Martin decided to put to rest.
The theory went along the lines that Martin has been holding back finished volumes of his book series from both fans and publishers to find a way to have a bigger pay day. Let’s be honest for a moment. Martin isn’t getting any younger and if he cared about the cash that much he’d be more likely to try to get these books out sooner than later. To top that off, he isn’t really known for living a lavish lifestyle as he loves to interact with fans and give to charities.
Here’s what he had to say on the subject,
“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.”
With Martin already working on the next novel and so little time to make sure that it gets out, he didn’t sign on to write an episode script for the fifth season. This will be the first season he wasn’t directly involved in writing one so you’d better believe that he is hard at work getting the next novel that we are clamoring for written.
Are you eagerly awaiting his next novel, ‘The Winds of Winter’ to be released? Did you think the rumor that he’s been sitting on books was a real one or did you roll your eyes with me that he had to take the time to deny it? Share your thoughts below!
Winter might be coming but the premiere date for the next season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ isn’t until 2015 with no official release date yet for the next novel.
