George R. R. Martin, the man behind Game of Thrones, has gotten a lot of flak from fans for being slow to finish the book series that the hit HBO show is based on, A Song of Ice and Fire. George has been working for three years on The Winds of Winter, the forthcoming sixth installment of the planned seven-part series, and there is no release date in sight. The delay has gotten fans worried that George, who is 65, will possibly die before he can finish the seventh novel — a claim that the author does not appreciate. When asked by a Swiss reporter about the speculation, George said, "I find that question pretty offensive, people speculating about my death and my health. So f*ck you to those people." Considering that Game of Thrones just finished its fourth season and is preparing for its fifth installment, maybe fans can satisfy themselves with the TV version for now.
