The final episode of the HBO and Sky Atlantic phenomenon has now aired, and fans around the world will be catching up with it over the coming days. With that story now complete, attention will no doubt turn back to George RR Martin’s original books. A Song of Ice and Fire - which inspired Game of Thrones on the small screen - is intended to feature seven tomes, of which two are still to come.

“Which, let me add once more, has NOT been finished and hidden away for years. (sigh).”

Martin also revealed that his Westeros companion book Fire and Blood has been shortlisted for a prize.

“Oh, speaking of FIRE & BLOOD… very pleased to learn that it has been nominated for a Locus Award by the readers of LOCUS magazine, the Publisher’s Weekly of SF and fantasy,” he beamed.

“It’s a finalist in the Best Collection category.”

Martin has not yet commented on the finale of Game of Thrones, though he did say in a blog post last week that claims he was unhappy with Jerome Flynn’s portrayal of Bronn were “b******t”.

“I created Bronn, so it would be immodest of me to say he’s a terrific character… but what the hell, he’s a terrific character, and my readers will definitely be seeing more of him in the books to come,” he wrote.

“And Jerome Flynn has been just WONDERFUL. It’s been a honor to work with him. He’s done a marvelous job of bringing Bronn to life.

“Again: don’t believe anything you read on the internet.”
