George R.R. Martin has choice words for worried fans

There are those out there concerned that George R.R. Martin might not be around to finish "Game of Thrones." Martin has two words for them.

At age 65, George R.R. Martin, beloved author of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series that serves as source material for HBO's "Game of Thrones," is, arguably, no spring chicken. Some fans are worried that Martin's age and slow writing pace (Martin writes only when he's at home, and he has a lot of "Thrones"-related events to attend) could mean the series will go unfinished.

Martin has gone out of his way to appease those with such fears, revealing that he already knows the major plotlines and even how the series will end, and has shared that information with show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss so they could carry the series to conclusion without him. Still, "Game of Thrones" fans are anxious about Martin's age and health (though no definitive announcements about his medical state give cause for concern), and the author is understandably growing irritated with their worries.

In an interview with Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger, Martin didn't mince words when the question came up. "I find that question, you know, pretty offensive, frankly, when people start speculating about my death and my health," Martin said, adding "so f**k you to those people."

Point made, George. Point made.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
