Tomorrow is George R.R. Martin's 66th birthday. In honor of the occasion, Dustin Rowles at Uproxx has compiled a list of facts about the celebrated writer/producer. The focus of this list is on Martin's personal life.
For instance, when George R.R. Martin was in the sixth grade, he impulsively decided to stop buying and reading comic books which, prior to that decision, was a significant hobby of his. At the time, young George had a collection of Superman comics, which he gave away. Just in time, and in what could be considered an omen of his future success, he changed his mind six months later, buying first editions of The Amazing Spider-man and The Fantastic Four. Martin now says they could fund his retirement.
