George R.R. Martin shuts down ‘absurd’ rumor that he finished last ‘Game of Thrones’ books

SPOILER ALERT! After eight seasons, “Game of Thrones” finally had its last war.

George R.R. Martin is setting the record straight.

The 70-year-old author, who is currently writing the sixth novel of his wildly popular series “Song of Ice and Fire,” which was adapted into the hit HBO show “Game of Thrones,” adamantly denied speculation that the last two books are already finished.

Rumors started swirling after actor Ian McElhinney (who played Ser Barristan Selmy) claimedthat Martin “struck an agreement” with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to “not publish the final two books until the (TV) series has completed.”

“George has already written Books 6 and 7,” McElhinney said at Russia’s EPIC Con 2019 in April. The remark was enough to trigger any icy response from Martin.

“All of a sudden this crazy story about my finishing ‘THE WINDS OF WINTER’ and ‘A DREAM OF SPRING’ years ago is popping up everywhere,” Martin wrote on his blog Monday. 

He continued: “No, the books are not done. HBO did not ask me to delay them. Nor did David  Dan. There is no ‘deal’ to hold back on the books. I assure you, HBO and David Dan would both have been thrilled and delighted if ‘THE WINDS OF WINTER’ had been delivered and published four or five years ago… and NO ONE would have been more delighted than me.”
