Are you one of those people who worries constantly about the health and wellbeing of George R.R. Martin? Are you breathlessly waiting for the next book in A Song of Ice and Fire, and look at Martin and get a little worried that he might not make it? Does his slow progress on the book frustrate you to no end?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, Martin has a message for you:

In an interview with the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, Martin took umbrage with the fact that people worry that he’ll never finish. Asked about the possibility of him not finishing the book, Martin said “Well, I find that question pretty offensive, frankly, when people start speculating about my death and my health. So ‘fuck you’ to those people.”

All we can say is: attaboy George.

And call us crazy, but who cares if he finishes the book? He told David Benioff and Dan Weiss the ending to Game of Thrones already, so HBO is already good to go on cranking out the rest of the series with or without the books. And let’s get real: we all know TV is better than reading anyway.
