Martin was to visit two premieres in Los Angeles, prior to falling sick due to Covid after attending the SDCC 2022. He expressed his remorse in a video on his blog about not being able to attend the premieres, one of which was the World Premiere for House of The Dragon.

George R.R. Martin produced a short film called Night of the Cooters a few weeks ago. Vincent D’Onofrio directed and starred as the sheriff in the town of Pachuco, Texas, which becomes the site of a Martian invasion. It’s an adaptation of a 1987 science fiction novel by Howard Waldrop. After Martin backed out of the Night of the Cooters premiere at the LA film festival, Vincent stepped up to represent the crew.

Martin has been recovering pretty quickly from the symptoms, as he recently updated his fans in the video above. Congratulate the author on his latest win in the comments below!
