Aside from his masterpiece, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which is turned into a number one hit television series Game of Thrones,” George R.R. Martin is also known as the creator of “Wild Card” series. However, the 68-year-old author is being scolded by the fans of “ASoIaF” for they have all waiting for the release of “The Winds Of Winter.”

As a fan bravely complained about the lack of update of the much-awaited novel, the novelist addressed the issue on his LiveJournal page. Writing on his page, he revealed that he is going to give up writing about the science fiction and superhero anthology series to make way for the epic fantasy novel.

A promise to finish ‘ASoIaF’

“Truth be told, I'd love nothing better than to write some more ‘Wild Cards’ stories,” George R.R. Martin wrote on his blog.

He has new characters, like Lohengrin and Hoodoo Mama, who he was hardly written about for the story, and some favorite characters – Popinjay and the Turtle – that he wants to revisit. He, too, has new stories to tell in the series, but these things have to wait until he finally finishes “The Winds of Winter.” Not only that, he is also eyeing to complete “A Dream of Spring.”

Martin faces an irate fan

As “Game of Thrones” viewers are now excited for the release of the seventh season, George R.R. Martin is not yet done writing its source material -- “A Dream of Spring,” and even the sixth novel, “The Winds of Winter.”

However, it looks like fans already accepted the truth that the television series will be finished without the help of the novel.

To recall, the fifth book installment, “A Dance with Dragons,” has been revealed in 2011. Thus, fans are now clamoring for any update about the sixth novel, hoping that it will be revealed sooner than expected.

This even leads to an irate fan to confront the short-story writer who is complaining about the updates he is mostly giving that are not about “A Song of Ice and Fire.” His follower said that he knows there are a lot of “Wild Cards” fans, but he will bet that 99 percent of his followers are for “ASoIaF.”

The fan even accused George R.R.

Martin of using the epic novel’s popularity to promote his anthology series. The follower added that it is quite annoying and frustrating that they haven’t heard any update about the much-awaited novel in more than a year.

“You say, “Give us something,” the author retorted. He explained that he had given his fans a number of sample chapters from the sixth book, which has been all shared on his website.

He even insisted that he read some of its excerpts at a lot of press cons. “It’s never enough,” he said. And to shut all the angry fans, he said that to give them the satisfaction they want, he is going to finish the book that everybody wants. “And that’s what I’m trying to deliver,” he added.
