"What happens to this? I write it. You read it. Then everyone can make their own mind and argue for it on the internet."
In a post saying goodbye to the HBO show, Martin discussed his long-awaited conclusion to the written version of the series and raised the biggest question first: will the end be the same? His answer is non-binding: "Yes … yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes."
His point is to say that, while working towards a similar purpose to the creators of the show, they had six hours of television to work with and he is likely to have 3000 pages of manuscripts (and will add more if needed) . The media involved allow different types of expression and explanation.
He also points out that with so many characters that were neither introduced nor died in the show, there will be great differences: "if nothing else teaches readers What happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell , Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both big and small as the viewers of the show never had the chance to meet ".
He concludes by pointing out that it is silly to ask about the show or the books are the "real" ending in the story: "How about this? I write it. You read it. Then everyone can make their own mind and argue for it on the internet. "
Update 04/15/2019: Thrones author's game George RR Martin has offered further insight into the difference between his planned final books and the HBO TV series.
During an 60-minute interview, he said that the show, created by David Benioff and DB Weiss, "would have to run another five seasons" for it to be completely faithful to the story he has adapted to the last books in The A Song of Ice and Fire series, Winter's winter and a dream in the spring.
However, the exhibition will be very close, thanks to "several days of conference conferences" that took place in Martin's house in Santa Fe, New Mexico. "I don't think Dan and Dave will be so different from my end because of the conversations we had," he said.
"But they may be on some secondary signs, there may be great differences" He explained that "there is no way to get in detail, all the minor characters, all secondary characters".
He joked that people will struggle on the internet about what is better, which is the inevitable result of all this.
Original story: George RR Martin confirmed that there will be changes and additions to the end of his A song of ice and fire series compared to HBO's game of thrones.
In a piece of Rolling Stone that focuses on GoT actress Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, Martin talked about how the show's creator, David Benioff and DB Weiss, had to make their own way with history after the past few years began to surpass their writing.  "I've been so slow with these books," Martin said. "The most important points at the end will be things I told them five or six years ago. But there may also be changes, and much will be added."
Martin's words indicate that the general conclusion of Game of Thrones will resemble what he has planned for his last novel in the series, A Dream of Spring. But as has been the case throughout the show, there will be noticeable differences between the two.
Recently Martin said that the final season of Game of Thrones may have "important differences" from his upcoming books. He specifically said that there is "a lot of lesser character [arcs] they will come up on their own."
While some fans are upset about how long it is to take Martin to complete the sixth book, he is also angry he has not stopped winds of winter. To better focus on completing this novel, Martin beat the chance to enter season 8.
