George R.R. Martin - H 2015

Bad news for Game of Thrones fans — that seventh book might be delayed, because George R.R. Martin has become a zombie and been captured by a macabre collector of the undead. Or, at least, that's the story according to Syfy's Z Nation.

The Song of Ice and Fire writer will make a cameo playing a zombified version of himself in this Friday's episode of the second season of the series, but don't expect him to be on the lookout for new brains to eat. Instead, he's more concerned with signing copies of his latest novel — and maybe eating one or two, as well. That's what happens when you get zombified while escaping Comic-Con, it seems.

Martin will appear alongside series regular Keith Allan and guest Tom Beyer, playing the potentially insane collector. Watch the clip below.

Z Nation airs Fridays at 10 p.m. on Syfy.
