Last month, A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin gave fans an update on The Winds of Winter his blog. The 72-year-old reassured that he was self-isolating “given my age and physical condition.” He wrote: “But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions.”

The Game of Thrones creator continued: “I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff.

“And I’m not going into town or seeing anyone.”

Some people took this to mean that he decided to move to the cabin due to coronavirus.

However, ASOIAF expert and insider BryndenBFish has clarified that Martin has in fact been there for months writing The Winds of Winter.

BryndenBFish wrote on the ASOIAF Reddit: “Here's the thing: GRRM isn't social distancing due to COVID-19.

“From what I understand, he's been up in his mountain cabin for months (since the Fall) working on The Winds of Winter. 

“After his convention tours and media appearance in summer/fall 2019, GRRM came back to Santa Fe.

“And [he] sequestered himself up in his cabin with one writing assistant.”
