George R.R. Martin Annoyed by Fans' Emails About 'Game of Thrones' Twists

The 'Game of Thrones' book author asks fans to stop emailing him about the latest twists on the TV series as he prefers to focus on completing his new book, 'The Winds of Winter'.

AceShowbiz - George R.R. Martin is busy writing his next "A Song of Ice and Fire" book and asks fans to stop pestering with comments about the latest "Game of Thrones" twists so that he can focus on completing "The Winds of Winter". In his LiveJournal blog, the author admits he has been inundated with emails and comments about certain events on the show.

"Meanwhile, other wars are breaking out on other fronts, centered around the last few episodes of GAME OF THRONES," he writes after pointing out that he's already busy enough without having to address the twists on the TV series. "It is not my intention to get involved in those, nor to allow them to take over my blog and website, so please stop emailing me about them, or posting off-topic comments here on my Not A Blog. Wage those battles on Westeros, or Tower of the Hand, or Boiled Leather, or Winter Is Coming, or Watchers on the Walls. Anyplace that isn't here, actually."

He goes on noting that he doesn't have much control over the TV series, writing, "Yes, I know that THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER named me 'the third most powerful writer in Hollywood' last December. You would be surprised at how little that means. I cannot control what anyone else says or does, or make them stop saying or doing it, be it on the fannish or professional fronts. What I can control is what happens in my books, so I am going to return to that chapter I've been writing on THE WINDS OF WINTER now, thank you very much."

"Game of Thrones" season 5 finale airs Sunday, June 14 at 9 P.M. on HBO. Some photos from the episode have been released, one of which shows Cersei begging for forgiveness from the High Sparrow.
