I want my readers and I want my viewers to be afraid when my characters are in danger. ~George RR Martin on Conan
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Game of Thrones!
"I want them to be afraid to turn the next page because the next character may not survive it."
"You've achieved that."
This interview happened right after the Red Wedding:
Mission accomplished, GRRM!
I love that the guest author upstaged the guest vampire (Alexander Skarsgard).
I guess at this point he is a celebrity in his own right?
Yes, I think so, not unlike Stephen King. They both have cult followings.
And JK Rowling. Though it's unclear if her readers will follow her into her next book series.
