I'm Number Three....

 ... again.

First the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER named me the third most powerful writer in Hollywood.

And now, yes indeed, Barbara Walters has included me as one of her Ten Most Fascinating People of 2014.  The third, actually.  Though I am not sure the order actually matters.

LiveJournal is not letting me embed the video, for some reason, but for those of you who missed the show, here's a link:

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/video/game-thrones-author-george-martins-rise-success-27599428

(Look closely, and you can catch a glimpse of Parris, of Gardner Dozois, of various other friends).

It is gratifying to know that I am as fascinating as I am powerful  (this year, at least).  Plainly it must be the Autumn of George (obligatory SEINFELD reference).

Sad to say, however, I failed to win the triple crown.  I may be fascinating, and I may be powerful, but somehow, unaccountably, PEOPLE magazine failed to name me Sexiest Man Alive to complete the sweep.  They went with Thor... er, Chris Hemsworth... instead.   And, yeah, okay, he's all rugged and muscle-y and stuff, and his hammer is bigger than mine, but really... PEOPLE did not even include me in the list of runners up, although Kit Harrington and Richard Madden were both included (and congrats to both of them).

But that's the way it goes with triple crowns.  The Belmont always breaks 'em.

This makes no sense...
Isn't sex appeal about power and personality? People Magazine is losing credibility this year (Hahahaha, see what I did there? THIS year).

You were robbed, George
People magazine didn't even list you as a runner-up? Clearly there's no accounting for taste. I'll be sending them a stern e-mail for this! *shakes fist*

Pfft. This is People's way of giving you the "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" treatment. Bastards.

It will be a struggle, but I'm sure you can get by with only Upper and Lower Egypt.

It's been a good month for you!

You deserve it.

And comparing hammer size is not all that good an indicator of sexiness.
