Amy Poehler Quizzes George R.R. Martin on ‘Game of Thrones’ Knowledge

Amy Poehler and “Game of Thrones” novelist George R.R. Martin both stopped by “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Tuesday, and Meyers and Poehler teamed up to quiz Martin on his knowledge of his own books.

Quizzing Martin on quotes, or in the case of “F—! You cut off my f—— hand!,” paraphrases, from the books, Meyers and Poehler showed viewers that even the esteemed writer has a hard time keeping track of who said what in his sprawling fantasy series.

After Martin finished tripping up on the curveballs Poehler threw him, the two took a shot backstage exchanging each others’ newly released books – “Yes Please” by Poehler and “The World of Ice and Fire” by Martin.

Did George R.R. Martin find a new Mother of Dragons backstage at #LNSM?

No word from Martin yet on whether or not readers can expect to see Westeros 9 meteorologist Breeze Daniels or Winterfell math tutor Mrs. Puddlefinch in future books.

    The Book is simply a piece of art. Unlike conventional fiction writers, Martin narrates the story from different characters’s point in each chapter. Each chapter is devoted to a certain character. It makes you thirsty for more from that character and then again a new chapter starts, thus continuing the story with a different character’s point of view.
    You get deeply involved with the characters by this method of writing. It is impossible to put down a book as wonderful as this.
