If George R.R. Martin Had Written LOTR

, , , ,

Fantasy author L.B. Gale observes that the death-rate among the good guys would have been considerably higher.

It used to be that Joss Whedon was the go-to-guy when you wanted to complain about authors mercilessly killing off characters, but once (spoiler alert!) Ned Stark’s death became a part of popular culture canon, George R. R. Martin took over that throne.

Read the whole thing.

Hat tip to Karen L. Myers.

One Feedback on "If George R.R. Martin Had Written LOTR"


GRR Martin’s graphic and vulgar sex references would make JRR Tolkien so blushed that he wouldn’t notice that the only good guys left were bad guys experimenting with being good. Plus, what about the inverted time machine at work? Martin has been writing for 12 years and we’ve covered about 18 months in the lives of the characters. But it’s compelling. So please George, answer the question: Where do whores go?
