George R.R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of which HBO’s Game of Thrones series is derived, touched down in Seattle, WA last night to address his ever growing readership. The gathering took place at the Seattle Town Hall, an expansive building with stained glass panels towering above rows of what appear to be old church pews. Mr Martin stepped onto the stage to a uproarious applause and standing ovation from much of the crowd.
Having worked in the television industry all of his life he said that no network is as much a pleasure to work with as HBO, who he says cares solely about the quality of their content.
