George R.R. Martin doesn't want your 'Game of Thrones' talk on his blog

Want to discuss the differences between the "Game of Thrones" TV series and the source material on which it's based? The author of "A Song of Ice and Fire" says, "Not on my blog."

George R.R. Martin is getting tons of email and off-topic blog comments from fans wanting to discuss -- or more likely, express outrage -- at some of the things that happened in Sunday night's episode of "Game of Thrones," and he's had enough.

The author of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series on which HBO's hit show is based took to his blog on Monday to defend the show and tell readers once again that his blog is not the place to discuss the TV show and why it isn't more closely following the books.

"I have been saying since season one that this is not the place to debate or discuss the TV series," Martin said in a post on Not a Blog, "Please respect that."

Martin went on to note that there have been differences between the books and the TV series since the very first episode and added that, from his standpoint anyway, very few shows have been closer to their source material than "Game of Thrones." And, as Martin also notes, both he and the folks behind "Game of Thrones" are heading toward the same ending, so viewers and readers will be treated to the same overall story, more or less.

So, "Game of Thrones" superfans, remember to heed Jon Snow's warning and just chill out a bit. He is the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, after all, and you wouldn't want to find yourself on the wrong end of his Longclaw.
