  George R. R. Martin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George Raymond Richard Martin (sometimes called GRRM by fans; born September 20, 1948 in Bayonne, New Jersey) is an American writer of science fiction and fantasy, and also a screenwriter and producer.
Martin was a prolific author of short fiction in the 1970s, and won several Hugo Awards and Nebula Awards before he started to turn his attention to novels late in the decade.
Martin is opposed to fan fiction, to the extent that mentioning one has written it in his universe is a potentially bannable offense on the Song of Ice and Fire message board.

 George Martin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sir George Martin CBE (born January 3, 1926 in Holloway, London, England) is sometimes referred to as "the fifth Beatle", a title that he owes to his work as producer of almost all of The Beatles' records.
Martin attended the Guildhall School of Music in the years after World War II, paying his way with a veteran's grant (he had served during the war in the Royal Air Force).
Martin oversaw post-production on The Beatles Anthology in 1994 and 1995, but stepped down when it came to producing the two new singles to be included (reuniting McCartney, Harrison and Starr, to overdub two old Lennon demos).

George Martin was born in 1926 in London.
Martin was in uniform for another year, at the end of which, after passing through a clerk's job, he entered the Guildhall School of Music, studying composition, conducting, orchestration, and theory, and taking up the oboe as a second principal instrument.
Martin received a knighthood in 1996, the first member of his profession ever so honored by the English crown, and in 1997 capped his career with "Candle in the Wind," a British number one hit by Elton John that became the biggest-selling single in the history of popular music.

 George Martin
George Martin was in his early 30s and already an accomplished producer and musician by the time he met the Beatles.
