If you’re a rabid “Game of Thrones” fan worried that author George R. R. Martin won’t finish the last two books in his saga, he’s got a pretty clear message for ya: “Fuck you.”
Yes, it took six years for Martin to publish his most recent book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” canon, and yes, the HBO adaptation of his saga is burning through books quite rapidly, but he still resents the concerns of the many readers and TV watchers who fear he will croak before completing the next novels.
“I find that question pretty offensive, people speculating about my death and my health,” Martin, 65, told the Swiss newspaper Tagesanzeiger. “I say fuck you to those people.”
A word of advice to anyone that still wants to breach that topic with Martin: He has proven to be a remorseless killing machine.
