George RR Martin at Comic Con:
Would Martin ever consider doing a prequel series chronicling the fall of the house of Targaryen?
He’s says he’s working on “Dreams of Spring” (book 7)
, and that while they showrunners are laying down the tracks, they’re not on top of him yet. He would consider a prequel, but the last two books will reveal all the twists and betrayals, so it would be a retread to go through Robert’s rebellion. Aegon and his sisters, and the Mad King could be material for prequels if he pursues them, but he won’t do the immediate precursors (no offense to Sean Bean, “who dies so well,” says Martin).
