In another ice-javelin throw to the heart, "Song of Ice and Fire" readers won't be getting another Westeros fix for a while. That's because author George R.R. Martin's Sunday nights are dedicated to watching "Game of Thrones" -- just like the rest of us. Though the author admits he's a bit behind on the show's current season.
"During his trip abroad he didn't watch any television — so he's behind on 'Thrones'' current seventh season," Martin's team said in an e-mail to Entertainment Weekly.
Martin, whose epic books are the source material for HBO's fantasy drama, cleared up earlier reports that said he wasn't up on the television adaptation because he was busy writing his next book, "The Winds of Winter." Some headlines indicated that he didn't watch the series at all.
