Writer George Martin, author of The Song of Ice and Flame, which is the basis of Game of Thrones, wants to compete with The Lord of the Rings. He said that if he got six Emmys, he intended to get seven. About this writes The Independent.
Martin said that people often compare two works, but he himself does not understand why. The writer considers himself competitive and wants more science fiction projects to appear on television.
This fall comes out George Martin’s new book The Rise of the Dragon. It will include 180 new illustrations created by George Martin with Elio M. Garcia Jr. and Linda Antonsson.
The book will be a continuation of the book “Flame and Blood”, which was published in 2018. The plot is about the Targaryen dynasty from the reign of Aegon the Conqueror to the regency of Aegon III the Dragon of Doom.
