In 2007, when the game “Game of Thrones” did not exist, and Second Life was popular, George Martin arranged there with the fans about his works. It was a promotional company of the book "Retrospective".
Second Life is once a popular virtual world in which people could be anyone. George Martin played in the avatar of Tirion. The rest of the faces were much crazier.
The writer read several passages and answered questions from fans. For example, he said that he plans to write seven books from the “Song of Ice and Flame” series. At that time, he wrote four. And even read an excerpt from the fifth book “Dance with the Dragons”, which was published only in 2011.
In the end, the avatars of David Benioff and Dan Weiss joined George Martin, because the announcement of the series Game of Thrones took place quite recently. They promised to be true to the source. And the writer said the following:
I know that I write books more slowly than before, but I work. I have to stay ahead of Dan with David. It would be terribly embarrassing if the events of the series catch up with the events of the books.
