Taking to his blog, Martin updated fans on his health and progress with upcoming book The Winds of Winter, the penultimate instalment in the series.
He insisted he was taking all the possible precautions and reassured them that there was nothing to worry about.
"For those of you who may be concerned for me personally… yes, I am aware that I am very much in the most vulnerable population, given my age and physical condition," he began.
"But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions. I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff, and I’m not going in to town or seeing anyone."
