Write George, Write Like the Wind (George R. R. Martin)

An amusing little song by Paul and Storm at geekandsundry, who are urging good man George R. R. Martin to just get on with writing the next book in A Song of Ice and Fire, the epic series that the Game of Thrones TV show is based off.

If you haven’t yet finished the series (or are only watching the HBO series without reading the books – something I don’t believe anyone should do) don’t worry, there aren’t any major spoilers in their cute little song.

  1. Not a reader of the books, nor a watcher of the show(despite both being heartily recommended to me), but I still knew enough to appreciate this song. Actually, it kinda struck home, since I'm a huge fan of the Wheel of Time series, and its author did, sadly, die before he finished it. Fortunately, his widow and publishers found a great author to finish out the series, plus he had left copious notes on where he was going with the story. Here's hoping Martin doesn't die before he finishes, but if he does, it ends up being a situation something like that.

    • I do believe George R.R. Martin has left notes with HBO on how to finish the show should the worst happen. I also think he forbid anybody from finish the books in his place though.

      • Hmm… I'm not sure about a "better" job, per se, but he's certainly continuing the spirit of Jordan, and he's doing a fine job of it! Honestly, saying Sanderson is doing better then Jordan seems to me to be saying Michelangelo did better works of art than Leonardo da Vinci.
