'Game of Thrones' Season 4 Spoilers: George R. R. Martin Talks Books & Series Ending [VIDEO]
Game of Thrones fans don't have to worry about the series not ending in a conclusive, proper way.
George R. R. Martin, who wrote the A Song of Ice and Fire novels on which Game of Thrones is based, recently teased his plan for the final two books of the saga.
"Two big books, 1,500 manuscript pages each-that's 3,000 pages," Martin told Empire Magazine recently. "I think I have a good shot. And you know, if I really get pressed, I've already established that red comet. I can just have it hit Westeros and wipe out all life."
Book 5, A Dance of Dragons, came out in 2010 and book lovers are eagerly anticipating the release of book 6, titled The Winds of Winter. Martin has not officially outlined the rest of the book series, but he said he has a general idea of how it will end.
He noted that he has "a broad sense of where the story is going-I know the end, I know the end of the principal characters, and I know the major turning points and events from the books, the climaxes for each book, but I don't necessarily know each twist and turn along the way."
Fans of Game of Thrones (the TV show) don't have to worry about the series catching up or even surpassing Martin's novel writing process. The author previously said that he has given executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss a general outline of how he envisions the rest of the series.
