George R.R. Martin, the novelist who created the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series that’s the basis for HBO’s "Game of Thrones," is asking fans to help him track down scripts from the show’s first season, reports TheWrap.com’s The Box blog.
Martin wrote on his blog that the final shooting scripts from the show’s first season had been stolen en route from Northern Ireland, where the show’s second season is in production, the story says. The novelist had planned to enter the scripts in a charity auction and wrote they would have earned "significant bucks," the piece adds. "I am convinced the scripts were stolen," he wrote, noting that he suspects the thief is a U.S. postal worker.
"The US post office delivered the envelope in a plastic baggie with a pre-printed note apologizing for the ‘damage,’" Martin wrote. "But this was no error in handling. The envelope was torn open at one end, and both scripts were gone, though [co-creator] Dan [Weiss]’s letter remained."
