George R.R. Martin

Recently George R.R. Martin and Stephen King spent an hour talking about life and writing in front of an audience in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Kiva Auditorium. It’s an hour-long conversation filled with interesting anecdotes from both writers and fans of either writer won’t be disappointed. While the pair do share many traits, one glaring writing trait they do not share was questioned by George R.R. Martin when he asked King “How the fuck to you write so many books so fast!?” (more…)
