GRRM's Stolen Thrones

George R. R. Martin has reported that two autographed scripts from the television series A Game of Thrones, which were intended to be auctioned at WorldCon for charity, never arrived at their intended destination. GRRM is assuming the scripts were stolen, and is calling on all his fans and readers to keep an eye out for them: "Whoever s[tole] these scripts will presumably try to cash in at some point. So if any of you ever see scripts fitting this description turn up on eBay, one of its competitors, or on some dealer's table -- notify me at once, and report the stolen property to whatever local authorities are appropriate. Here's what was taken: two teleplays, final shooting scripts for episodes nine and ten of season one, 'Baelor' and 'Fire and Blood,' autographed by writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss and director Alan Taylor, printed on white paper. Like Bloodraven, I have a thousand eyes and one. So let's keep 'em all peeled, boys and girls."

You can read GRRM's original blog post, which includes more than 70 comments, some insisting the scripts were stolen, others insisting they were eaten by postal machinery. Regardless, it won't hurt to remain vigilant for any A Game of Thrones scripts that show up for auction or sale.
