I'm a big fan of George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice & Fire" series of fantasy novels (now the "Game of Thrones" series on HBO). George is late in delivering the next book in the series.

Many people have criticized George for this, but author Neil Gaiman defended Martin in his now famous blog post by informing a fan that writers aren't machines and "George R.R. Martin Is Not Your Bitch." This song was inspired by that post and is sung from Neil Gaiman's point of view.


I got an e-mail from a reader
who said he loved an author
who wrote epic fantasy

He asked me if I thought the writer
should feel like he's required
to finish up the series

and this is what I said:

George R.R. Martin is not your bitch
no matter how much you gripe
George R.R. Martin is not your bitch
so you might as well go get a life

I said: If you think the books are entertaining
it's best to stop complaining
writers just aren't machines

George Martin never signed a contract
to just work on that project
so find something else to read

Have you tried Fevre Dream?
