You can’t blame George R.R. Martin for being interview-averse nowadays — anytime he appears in the news, someone demands to know why he’s not writing.

But you also can’t blame him for stepping away from the computer to accept an award, right?

NPR’s Scott Simon had a few minutes to chat with Martin after the latter received the Chicago Public Library Foundation's Carl Sandburg Literary Award.

The author of the acclaimed A Song of Ice and Fire series — which, of course, was adapted into the equally acclaimed Game of Thrones TV show — shared some of his inspiration for the books with Simon.

You can read highlights of their conversation, check out a transcript, or listen to them chat below.
