The rancorous response to the series finale of HBO
’s “Game of Thrones
” continues to generate chatter three months later, and author George R.R. Martin
still has to answer to fans. In a new interview with The Guardian
, the novelist again says that he is sticking to his original plans for the remaining books in the series, stressing that the controversial conclusion to the show will have no affect on what he’s writing — and whatever that is remains shrouded in mystery.
“You can’t please everybody, so you’ve got to please yourself,” Martin said, adding that he divorced himself from the ire sparked by the finale. “I took myself out of all that,” he said.
“Some of [the theories] are right and some of [the theories] are wrong,” Martin said in response to fan speculation about what’s to come in the new books. “They’ll find out when I finish.”
