    There are plenty of fantasy authors who claim to be doing something different with the genre Ironically they often write the most predictable books of all as evidenced by Goodkind and Paolini Though I'm not sure why they protest so much predictability is hardly a death sentence in genre fantasyThe archetypal story of a hero a villain a profound love and a world to be saved never seems to get old it's a great story when it's told well At the best it's exciting exotic and builds to a fulfilling climax At the worst it's just a bloodless rehash Unfortunately the worst are common by farPerhaps it was this abundance of cliche romances that drove Martin to aim for something different Unfortunately you can't just choose to be different any than you can choose to be creative Sure Moorcock's original concept for Elric was to be the anti Conan but at some point he had to push his limits and move beyond difference for difference's sake and he didIn similar gesture Martin rejects the allegorical romance of epic fantasy which basically means tearing out the guts of the genre the wonder the ideals the heroism and with them the moral purpose Fine so he took out the rollicking fun and the social message what did he replace them with?Like the post Moore comics of the nineties fantasy has already borne witness to a backlash against the upright moral hero and then a backlash against the grim antihero who succeeded him Hell if all Martin wanted was grim and gritty antiheroes in an amoral world he didn't have to reject the staples of fantasy he could have gone to its roots Howard Leiber and AndersonLike many authors aiming for realism he forgets 'truth is stranger than fiction' The real world is full of unbelievable events coincidences and odd characters When authors remove these elements in an attempt to make their world seem real they make their fiction duller than reality after all unexpected details are the heart of verisimilitude When Chekhov and Peake eschewed the easy thrill of romance they replaced it with the odd and absurd moments strange enough to feel true In comparison Martin's world is dull and gray Instead of innovating new radical elements he merely removes familiar staples and any style defined by lack is going to end up feeling thinYet despite trying inject the book with history and realism he does not reject the melodramatic characterization of his fantasy forefathers as evidenced by his brooding bastard antihero protagonist with pet albino wolf Apparently to him 'grim realism' is 'Draco in Leather Pants' This produces a conflicted tone a soap opera cast lost in an existentialist filmThere's also lots of sex and misogyny and 'wall to wall rape' not that books should shy away from sex or from any uncomfortable unpleasant reality of life The problem is when people who are not comfortable with their own sexuality start writing about it which seems to plague every mainstream fantasy author Their pen gets away from them their own hangups start leaking into the scene until it's not even about the characters any it's just the author cybering about his favorite fetish and if I cyber with a fat bearded stranger I expect to be paid for itI know a lot of fans probably get into it than I do like night elf hunters humping away in WOW but reading Goodkind Jordan and Martin it's like seeing a Playboy at your uncle's where all the pages are wrinkled That's not to say there isn't serviceable pop fantasy sex out there it's just written by womenThough I didn't save any choice examples I did come across this quote from a later book she wore faded sandsilk pants and woven grass sandals Her small breasts moved freely beneath a painted Dothraki vest Imagine the process Martin sits hands hovering over the keys trying to get inside his character's head Okay I'm a woman How do I see and feel the world differently? My cultural role is defined by childbirth I can be bought and sold in marriage by my own Oh hey I've got tits Man look at those things go whooshing mammary sound effects Okay time to writeWhere are the descriptions of variously sized dongs swinging within the confines of absurdly detailed clothing? There are a set of manboobs which perhaps Martin has some personal experience with but not until book five Even then it's not the dude being hyperaware of his own they're just there to gross out a dwarf Not really a balanced depictionIf you're familiar with the show and its parodies on South Park and SNL this lack of dongs may surprise you But as Martin himself explained when asked why there's no gay sex in his books despite having gay characters 'they’re not the viewpoint characters' as if somehow the viewpoints he chooses to depict are beyond his control Apparently he plots as well as your average NaNoWriMo author sorry none of my characters chose to be gay nothing I can do about itAnd balance really is the problem here if you only depict the dark gritty stuff that you're into that's not realism it's just a fetish If you depict the grimness of war by having every female character threatened with rape but the same thing never happens to a male character despite the fact that men get raped in the military than women then your 'gritty realism card' definitely gets revokedThe books are notorious for the sudden pointless deaths which some suggest is another sign of realism but of course nothing is pointless in fiction because everything that shows up on the page is only there because the author put it there Sure in real life people suddenly die before finishing their life's work fantasy authors do it all the time but there's a reason we don't tend to tell stories of people who die unexpectedly in the middle of things they are boring and pointless They build up for a while then eventually lead nowhereNovelists often write in isolation so it's easy to forget the rule to which playwrights adhere your story is always a fiction Any time you treat it as if it were real you are working against yourself The writing that feels the most natural is never effortless it is carefully and painstakingly constructed to seem that wayA staple of Creative Writing 101 is to 'listen to how people really talk' which is terrible advice A transcript of any conversation will be so full of repetition half thoughts and non specific words 'stuff' 'thing' as to be incomprehensible especially without the cues of tone and body language Written communication has its own rules so making dialogue feel like speech is a trick writers play It's the same with sudden character deaths treat them like a history and your plot will become choppy and hard to followNot that the deaths are truly unpredictable Like in an action film they are a plot convenience kill off a villain and you don't have to wrap up his arc You don't have to defeat him psychologically the finality of his death is the great equalizer You skip the hard work of demonstrating that the hero was morally right because he's the only option leftLikewise in Martin's book death ties up loose threads namely plot threads Often this is the only ending we get to his plot arcs which makes them rather predictable any time a character is about to build up enough influence to make things better or stable he will die Any character who poses a threat to the continuing chaos which drives the action will first be built up and then killed offI found this interview to be a particularly telling example of how Martin thinks of character deaths I killed view spoilerNed hide spoiler
