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.
