Geek and sundry, earlier this year, released a humorous ditty, urging George R. R. Martin to “write, and write faster. Winter is coming.” And…
“Please bear in mind, in the time that you’ve had,
William Shakespeare turned out 35 friggin’ plays!
And if you keep writing so slow,
You’ll hold up the HBO show.”
And George R. R. Martin (assisted by Neil Gaiman) caught up with his tormentors only a few months later at the w00tstock 5.0 show at San Diego Comic-Con.
