George R.R. Martin calls impatient readers predicting his death 'pretty offensive'

Author George R.R. Martin told Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger that he finds it "pretty offensive" when people speculate about his health and predict that he will die before completing his saga "A Song of Ice and Fire," on which "Game of Thrones" is based. He also had a profanity-laced response to people making those predictions.

Martin, 65, still appreciates his fans and knows how avid they are. "It's a terrific feeling, knowing you have not only a lot of readers or viewers, but that they're so intense, and bringing so much thought and interest to bear," he recently told Rolling Stone. "But maybe that's part of what's slowed me down -- the knowledge that so many people are looking at every line, and waiting on every turn and scene."

Rockabye baby George

The first night with a new baby is always hard for parents, and Prince William and Kate Middleton are no exception, according to the new issue of Vanity Fair. The couple's apartment outside the palace had no air conditioning and Prince George stayed up crying that first night in his new home.

As the months went on, Kate usually stayed up with her son as he fussed until morning. A sleepless Kate was then greeted by Queen Elizabeth, who arrived early each morning.
