George R.R. Martin is the writer and creator of the book series A Song of Ice and Fire. That’s his very large picture, above. You may have heard of him: Game of Thrones, the television show based on that book series, is very good. Which is better — the book or the TV series — depends on your taste for overwrought descriptions of sex between people with very similar DNA.
ANYWAY: George R.R. Martin doesn’t limit his writing to novels about warring kings and siblings having sex and hundreds of characters who you forget about after 30 seconds until they show up again a thousand pages later. He also has a blog.
And that blog happens to be a LiveJournal.
