Pretty sure GRRM will go out of his way to not repeat show dialogue if he can, though..

I wonder if he would allow himself to include anything the show writers came up with. Assuming he thought it was a great idea.

I 1,000% disbelieve everything GRRM has said in regards to not having struck a deal with HBO regarding the book schedule releases. I believe he's held it back intentionally because HBO paid him BIG bucks...like double-digit millions probably, to hold back until the show can air this season.

I think HBO is afraid that now that viewership has reached an all-time high, they don't want the "ending" leaked through people reading ahead to the finish of the book.

Basically I think GRRM was paid to fill the showrunners in on what happens to the major players, details on major plotlines etc. (as seen in Hodor's death, reaching the small screen before he ever put it in print)
The only way HBO was OK with making the series was if GRRM filled in the showrunners on where he planned on taking the story. That way, they could write it even if George never finished the series.

I definitely don't think they paid him off to not finish his own series. He's just slow and unmotivated most likely.

The showrunners could always change the books ending if that was HBO's desire. Which I doubt it was.

His non book based dialogue has been the most disappointing by far.

Martin is one of the best editing authors i've ever read, if not the very best. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he used a few carefully chosen phrases from the show.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.
