A Song of Ice and Lu­cre

Forbes - - Leaderboard Business Library -

GE­ORGE R.R. MARTIN has spent a half- decade writ­ing the hotly an­tic­i­pated sixth in­stall­ment of A Song of Ice and Fire, the se­ries that spawned HBO’S Game of Thrones, whose sixth sea­son con­cludes this month. “The book is not done,” he wrote to fans on his blog this Jan­uary, cit­ing a missed dead­line. “I tried, I prom­ise you. I failed.” But he hasn’t failed to reel in mil­lions an­nu­ally since book five, thanks to back­list sales and TV resid­u­als.
