One of today’s most gifted writers is George R. R. Martin, the creator of Game of Thrones, who has authored several critically acclaimed books. Martin’s writings, films, and television shows have won him several awards. Being an experienced aficionado in the film and television industry, he is quite aware of the cancel culture that is currently quite popular. And he does not like it one bit.

George R. R. Martin is sick of anti-fans

The Game of Thrones author has noticed how quite a lot of films in recent years have been buried under deep criticism. Martin wrote on his blog, Not A Blog,

“In films and television shows… though even there, toxicity is growing. It used to be fun talking about our favorite books and films, and having spirited debates with fans who saw things different… but somehow in this age of social media, it is no longer enough to say “I did not like book X or film Y, and here’s why.” Now social media is ruled by anti-fans who would rather talk about the stuff they hate than the stuff they love, and delight in dancing on the graves of anyone whose film has flopped.”

George R. R. Martin reminisces about his friends

A lot of fans are worried about Martin’s growing age, and Martin knows that. In his last post, he was reminiscing about his old friends who passed away in the past couple of years, while thinking about his fate. He wrote,

“Death is everywhere. Howard Waldrop was the latest, and his passing has hit me very very hard, but before him we lost Michael Bishop, Terry Bisson, David Drake… from my Wild Cards team, Victor Milan, John Jos. Miller, Edward Bryant, Steve Perrin… I still miss Gardner Dozois and Phyllis Eisenstein and my amazing agent Kay McCauley…

Len Wein is gone, Vonda McIntyre, and Harlan Ellison… Greg Bear too, and… oh, I could go on. I look around, and it seems as though my entire generation of SF and fantasy writers is gone or going. Only a handful of us remain… and for how long, I wonder? I know I have forgotten people in the list above, and maybe that is the destiny that awaits all of us… to be forgotten.”
