Dave Goldblatt, a Facebook employee from San Francisco, California is one of two people who donated $20,000 to George RR Martin's Prizeo campaign benefiting a wolf sanctuary in New Mexico. His prize? He'll be turned into a character and killed in Martin's upcoming book. Speaking to ABC News, Goldblatt said "I'm just lucky enough to be in a position to do this. Obviously, the money is going to charity, so it's an added bonus. I didn't immediately seek to help wolf sanctuaries, but the more I read about the charities, I learned it was a worthwhile cause." Goldblatt has chosen to be Valyrian, because he thinks they're cool and hopes to see more of them in the series.

George RR Martin announced that he won't be attending San Diego Comic Con this year (as well as World Fantasy Con) because he's staying home to focus on writing Winds of Winter.  Hear that?  That's the sound of the bevy of "why isn't he writing?!" complaints you were going to hear during con season getting quashed in the background.  GRRM did add however, that if he finishes the novel before the con (ha!) he reserves the right to change his mind and attend afterall.
