The name of George R.R. Martin is one that inspires a great swirl of mixed emotions. You want to hug him with excited squeals while also strangling him at the same time. He is bestowed with the title, An American Tolkein'. Martin is renowned for giving his extremely wide ranging fans a hard time with no motive in sight except maybe closet sadism.
Popularly known for his fantasy novel series, A song of ice and fire, heres a man whose name pops up in approximately seventy percent of banter between people of ages 14 to 30. Of course, those conversations mostly include the repeated screaming of the word WHY? and the occasional outburst of tears. Trust me, Ive been there.
Martin made his debut in the sacred field of literature with works mostly dealing with science fiction. His initial works also have that sense of gory and cynical that is to be overly amplified in his later books as is his trademark. Hes also dabbled in the genre of horror, being nominated for and winning various awards for his novels and novellas. But we all know when his name shot up into the prestigious hall of fame to stay through the ages, the success of the T.V. series, Game of Thrones. The show is extremely hard to miss, now that it has overtaken popular media and culture. Im sure future generations will never hear the end of their parents reminiscing over the good old shows they had back in the day.
Martin, as a child kept turtles as pets in a mock setting of castles. Many of them died in circumstances unforeseen and questionable. His imagination managed to conjure images of secret turtle wars with the little-shelled creatures killing off each other in a sequence of spite and greed and other shady emotions. He attributes many of his plot ideas to varied versions of what an excitable childs mind painted back in his pre-teens. The rest of it, he says, is inspired by actual events that have played through history, citing the War of Roses and Ivanhoe.
Wherever his muses lie, no one dares argue against his immense talent as an accomplished writer. Heres hoping for several more episodes of a well-loved T.V. series where maybe, just maybe, characters dont die off in heart-wrenching episodes that seek to eternally traumatize viewers.
