The author of the A Song of Fire and Ice series, which begins with the novel A Game of Thrones, is set to write an episode for HBO’s second season of Game of Thrones.
Martin has chosen to script the ninth episode of season two, an episode which chronicles the epic sea battle of Blackwater Bay.
The second season will be based upon the second book in the series, A Clash of Kings. Martin has completed a total of five novels for the series. Martin has revealed that he is in the process of outlining a plot for a novel which does not take place in Westeros, the world that A Song of Fire and Ice takes place in, but pressure from fans, and paychecks from HBO, might persuade him to keep the Song of Fire and Ice singing.
