Fans have reported seeing George R. R. Martin at Comic-Con. They were excited but also disappointed that he wasn’t working on The Winds of Winter. Sadly, Martin actually wasn’t at Comic-Con, but he’s also not working on the book.

Here’s what you need to know

Fans have reported seeing George R. R. Martin at Comic-Con. However, it looks like those rumors are unfounded. GRRM himself addressed the rumors on his blog:

He titled his blog “Not in San Diego” and wrote, in part:

I am getting reports from friends in San Diego, and friends of friends, that I have been sighted at the con.

It’s not me.

Really. It’s not. It’s some other old fat guy in a Greek sailor’s cap and pair of suspenders, maybe. Who may or may not be consciously cosplaying as me.”

He added: “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that anyone would ever want to dress up as me.”

Unfortunately, he’s not locked up at home working on “The Winds of Winter,” the long-anticipated next-book in his series A Song of Ice and Fire. Martin shared that he’s at a big Wild Cards event at the Jean Cocteau Cinema this weekend, working with 19 other writers.
