George RR Martin puts the word out that some lightfingered postal worker apparently stole the HBO Game of Thrones scripts that had been mailed to him so that he could sign them and donate them to a charity auction. He wants his fans to look out for the scripts going on sale and help catch the crook.
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, though Dan's letter remained.
I am convinced the scripts were stolen.
Last year we donated a signed STAR TREK script to a charity auction and it brought $1200. These two scripts may not have gone for quite that much, but they would have brought home some significant bucks. Someone in the US Post Office (we believe the package made it across from Belfast relatively unscathed) recognized their value and removed them.
So... I am putting out the word to all my fans and readers. Whoever sold these scripts will presumably try to cash in at some point. So if any of you ever see scripts fitting this description turn up on ebay, one of its competitors, or on some dealer's table -- notify me at once, and report the stolen property to whatever local authorities are appropriate.

The general impression of the View-Master Virtual Reality viewer is that it’s an excellent Google Cardboard viewer for any Android phone or iPhone, but that the View-Master app “reels” aren’t very good. My family and I love Google Cardboard – the experience of walking around Paris and Tokyo is amazing. For $18, it seems like […]
