[YOUTUBE "snm6qnezv0Q"] Did you know that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on a literary saga?
Kidding, kidding. But seriously, in his GoT DVD audio commentaries, author George R.R. Martin has a tendency to point out how a certain plot point went down "in the books."
One enterprising fan put together a supercut of every time Martin refers to "the books" during his commentaries. From season 1 to season 4, no "book" was left unturned.

The dreams of A Song of Ice and Fire fans everywhere have been dashed.
As with anything related to the epic fantasy series, mild spoilers abound for watchers of Game of Thrones and for those not caught up on the canon. Consider yourselves warned.

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.
The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Game of Thrones fans are a prolific and determined bunch. How prolific and determined? Well, at the recent Edinburgh International Literary Festival, the author of the epic fantasy saga, George R.R. Martin, says he's stopped reading online message boards for the show because, to his chagrin, he discovered a few fans have already accurately predicted how the series will end.

The master of literary misery, the killer of your favorite characters, George R.R. Martin has offered up his services as a hired hit man.
As part of a campaign to raise money for Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot of Santa Fe, the Game of Thrones author has come up with an interesting incentive. The first two donors to give $20,000 were guaranteed to have a character, who meets a grisly death, named after them in an upcoming Song of Fire and Ice novel.

First, let me thank readers of the George R.R. Martin novels that serve as the source for HBO's Game of Thrones, which concluded its third and (so far) best season Sunday night.
Thank you for keeping your traps shut.
If you had suffered from spoiler's pride, you would have gone around boasting loudly about your foreknowledge of the calamity that struck in last week's penultimate episode, "The Rains of Castamere," more popularly known now simply as "Red Wedding."
