Author George R.R. Martin is a genial-looking man, the kind of man you would want to read a bedtime story to your children (or just to you). But that means you haven’t actually read what he’s written. The author of A Game of Thrones has been writing cruel tales since the early 1970s (read his famous novella “Sandkings” to see what I mean), and each book in the Song of Ice and Fire series brings the pain–and the food–like few fantasy authors have done.
So what kind of fairy tale would Martin read? He would read something as entertaining as the video below.
