Fantasy author George R R Martin has threatened to decapitate the hapless Amazon employee who sent out early copies of his long-awaited A Dance With Dragons

180 copies of the strictly embargoed A Dance With Dragons, due to be published on 12 July, were shipped in error to readers in Germany. SInce then, spoilers have been appearing on various websites. 'I am not happy about this. My publishers are furious. If we find out who is responsible, we will mount his head on a spike,' wrote Martin on his blog.

Awaited for six years by fans, the 1000-page A Dance With Dragons is the fifth novel in Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. The recent HBO TV dramatisation A Game of Thrones, starring Sean Bean, has increased the buzz around A Dance With Dragons' publication.
