Author George R.R. Martin is well known for killing his characters -- and now's your chance to be part of the fun.

For $20,000 Martin will name a character in the next Game of Thrones novel after you and then do away with you -- most likely in a particularly gruesome way. The money is going to a good cause: the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

As part of the campaign, Martin is also offering signed memorabilia, one of his signature hats and a chance to have dinner with him. Plus everyone who donates gets enrolled in a chance to take a helicopter ride with the writer through the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary.
