‘Game of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin eager to kill off his fans for charity

By Ashley Laggan,

Author George R.R. Martin is seeking to save a wolf sanctuary located in New Mexico, and he’s offering to write a fan into his books and kill them off in exchange for a $20,000 donation.

On Prizeo, where Martin posted his plea for donations, the website proclaims that a donation at the “Martyr” level will result in an “exclusive opportunity to have George name a character after you in a future A Song of Ice and Fire novel. You can choose your character’s station in the world (lordling, knight, peasant, whore, lady, master, septon, anything) and you will certainly meet a grisly death!”

Other big prizes include the chance to have breakfast with Martin (for a meager $15,000), a pair of tickets to the season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones ($7,500), and a copy of the pilot’s script signed by the cast and crew ($4,500).

So far, fans are only submitting the chance to be chosen to donate money for the bigger rewards, reports Today. The contest is set to end in July.
