Someone's going to lose a head over this.
Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin rallied his army of followers when he posted news that some signed scripts he'd hoped to auction for charity had turned up missing in the mail.
And did he suspect a Lannister plot?
Not unless the Imp has gone to work for the United States Postal Service, no.
According to Martin, the signed scripts from the HBO series were shipped from Belfast "relatively unscathed," but then alleges that they were removed somewhere after reaching the hands of the U.S. mail.
"The US post office delivered the envelope in a plastic baggie with a pre-printed note apologizing for the 'damage.' But this was no error in handling. The envelope was torn open at one end, and both scripts were gone," Martin wrote over the weekend.
"I am convinced the scripts were stolen."
In keeping with the epic nature of his massive Song of Ice and Fire series, Martin called for fans to take up arms for the Iron Throne keep an eye out for the missing scripts on auction sites and memorabilia shows. The scripts are for the ninth and tenth episodes and are signed by the screenwriter/producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as director Alan Taylor.
A USPS spokesperson said he could not comment as not enough details were known about the situation.
