TIME magazine has honored George R.R. Martin on it’s Top 100 most influential people list for this year, and with a write-up by none other than humorist (and fan!) John Hodgman. At the end, Hodgman writes:
Tyrion Lannister is the best character in fiction since Stringer Bell and that if you have not read these books, you should be ashamed of yourself.
A ringing endorsement, both from, Hodgman and TIME!
