Believe it when we see it: “George R.R. Martin to focus on the books”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly at San Diego’s ComicCon, author George R.R. Martin said he won’t be writing an episode in season five of the HBO show, “Game of Thrones”, even though he wrote one in each of the first four seasons.

“I’m not actually writing an episode for season five,” the author said. “I have this book that I have to finish. I figured I’d better write the book rather than the episode.”

Not the worst idea, right? Since your fans are fairly worried that the sixth installment, The Winds of Winter, won’t out before the show catches up to the books. We’ll believe it when we see it, though…
