George R. R. Martin Dune

One of the best authors of the present day is undoubtedly George R. R. Martin, creator of the immensely famous television series Game of Thrones. Because of how vast his creation is, he is frequently referred to as the Tolkien of our day. However, Martin himself doesn’t believe that he has it in him to write another magnum opus like his previous creation.

George R.R. Martin has a lot of new ideas

Though Martin has yet to complete his masterpiece, he revealed in an interview with TIME that he has a lot of ideas. He said:

“Yes… but I’ve still got years of this to go, and I’m already 68 years old, so… I have enough ideas right now to write other books until I was 168 years old. But I’m probably not going to live to be 168 years old. So how much time do I have? I’m always having new ideas, so I might never write some of these old ideas. So who knows? I write the things that I want to write.”

George R. R. Martin will never write another series like Game of Thrones

Martin’s exhaustion with the series was evident from what he further said, “I’ve been lucky with the success of these books and the show. I am going to finish these books; I think I have that obligation to the world and my readers. It’s the thing I’m going to be remembered for. But I will write other things after that, I hope. I might go back to writing short stories. I loved writing short stories. I haven’t done them in many years, but there is something to be said. I am never going to write again a gigantic seven-book opus that takes 30 years!”
