NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) – George R.R. Martin, the fantasy novelist who commands a massive and massively loyal audience as the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series that spawned HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has put his minions on a special mission: to help him solve the case of the missing scripts.
Writing on his blog Saturday, Martin announced that two final shooting scripts from season one — for “Baelor” and “Fire and Blood,” the last two episodes — had been stolen recently en route from Northern Ireland, where the show’s second season is currently in production.
Martin had planned to enter the scripts, which are signed by “Game of Thrones” co-creator David Benioff and the episodes’ director, Alan Taylor, in a charity auction at WorldCon this week. He said that they would have fetched “significant bucks.”
