George R.R. Martin@Google
Recently, I discovered the wonder that is Authors@Google. (In case you’re curious, I discovered it by typing “authors” into Youtube search. It was the first result that came up.) Apparently, Google hosts a series of talks at their offices around the world, with different themes, such as; Musicians@Google, Artists@Google, and of course, Authors@Google. The top result among the Authors@Google talks is, as the title of this article suggests, is the talk with George. R. R. Martin.
It is a fascinating watch. (It was fascinating to me, at least.) Martin answers fan questions with good humor and just a touch of curmudgeonliness. It gives some insight into Martin’s process, and the process of how the books are adapted for the television series. For any fan of the series, it is truly interesting stuff.
It is a long video, just over an hour long, but can easily be watched in pieces if you don’t want to sit through the whole thing.
