George R.R. Martin Signs Contract That Forbids Him From Dying Before Finishing His Book Series

Author of the popular franchise A Song of Ice and Fire George RR Martin has signed a contract with his publisher that forbids him from dying before he finishes his saga, The Global Edition finds out. The fans of the saga are relieved, after constantly worrying about Martin dying before being able to finish the book series and let them know how the story ends.

“This is great news for all of us who were afraid that George will die and that we will never find out who’s going to take the Iron Throne in the end. In my opinion, the contract forcing him to stay alive should have been made a long time ago,” said one of the fans.

Book critics agree that the penalties George RR Martin would have to pay if he died before finishing the story are “just too expensive for him to try and break the contract.”

“If he was even thinking of dying before finishing the last two books, I bet that he gave up on that idea now,” says literary critic John Babledrop. “I’ve seen the contract and you wouldn’t want to be in his shoes if he breaks it,” he added.

Unconfirmed sources reported that the famous writer has started a rigorous diet in order to improve his deteriorating health and finish the novels before breaking the contract.

    Is this a joke? Who did he sign the contract with? What has he got to loose? What are the clauses in the contract? What did he get in return for signing the contract?

    It’s called the Robert Jordan clause.

      Ouch. That was cold, man. That was real cold.

      It might not be that bad, though, as long as they find someone better than that hack Sanderson to finish the job. I hope with all my heart that wasn’t REALLY the way Jordan was going to end the series…

      I don’t know if he was trying to be meta with the ‘wheel of time’ thing, but its just the same shit over and over, non-stop new characters and unresolved anything. Gave up at book 8 when I realized it was the literary equivalent of wading in a pool – going nowhere slowly.
