THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE | George R.R. MartinS trict instructions are issued before interviewing George RR Martin: do not ask about The Winds of Winter , the sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, the one fans keep haranguing him about and Martin has been writing since Focus on Fire and Blood , his imagined history of the Targaryen dynasty, and all will be well. So I prepare for the interview with a certain amount of trepidation. Martin is probably one of the most famous novelists in the world. There are not many writers who find their every pronouncement picked over by the press, who have sold 90m copies of their books, who are instantly recognised in public.
