Warning: Fake Spoilers

George R.R. Martin has threatened to go all medieval on the Amazon.de employee who accidentally shipped 180 copies of A Dance with Dragon before its official release date. Spoilers have now appeared online and Martin’s response is to threaten to put the person’s head on a spike.

How important are spoilers, really? Go The F@@k To Sleep, continues to be s bestseller, even though it was available online in its entirety before publication. In fact, many attribute it’s success to just that fact.

Nonetheless, a lot of passion is being expressed online about A Dance with Dragon‘s release now being “marred.”

But those supposed spoilers may be red herrings; Entertainment Weekly quotes Elio M. Garcia, Jr. webmaster for Martin fansite Westeros.org, that most of them are “inaccurate or garbled.”

So, what’s the punishment for inaccurate spoilers?

The book’s official release date is Tuesday, July 12
