George R.R. Martin to Release Another Book that's Not the Next Installment of A Song of Ice and Fire. But Wait! It Gets Worse
In the meantime, the 64-year-old George R.R. Martin is going to make some more cash, putting out what is the equivalent of a Christmas album, according to The Bookseller:
George R R Martin fans will have a new book for Christmas, with the fantasy writer compiling The Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister. The book was announced at HarperCollins' showcase of autumn titles to retailers, held on Wednesday evening (1st May). The hardback title will gather together "clever and naughty quips" from the popular character from A Song of Ice and Fire series, played in the HBO series by actor Peter Dinklage.
HarperCollins described it as "the perfect Christmas gift," quoting Tyrion: "My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, and I have my mind; and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge."
A greatest hits album? A compilation book? What's next? An NBC special with Michael Buble? Dude. Brother. Buddy. Pal. There's words to be written, my friend. Let's not mess about. After all, the man is just one Jets interception away from death.
