Game of Thrones prequel a possibility, says George R.R. Martin
Given author George R.R. Martin's notoriously glacial writing speed, Game of Thrones fans might be forgiven for wondering what HBO will do when it runs out of material.
Fortunately, in a recent interview with IGN, Martin opened up about the possibility of a prequel series.
Martin said that "we have been playing with the idea of doing those [Dunk and Egg novellas] as prequels. They would be prequels, in a sense, they’re a hundred years earlier but in the same world. They’re somewhat lighter in tone than the main series, a little more adventurous. But my fans love them and I love the two characters too, and it all ties into Westeros history. So maybe that will be what we’ll do."
Or you could just write faster. But I think Paul and Storm said it best.
