The Green Light

Spain
Thanks, everyone. The outpouring of enthusiasm has been amazing. The comments are piling up here faster than Ty can unscreen 'em, my phone is ringing off the hook, and my email is exploding. And of course the story is all over the internet. Quite a day.

For the six of you who may not have seen it elsewhere, here's a production still from the pilot sent out by HBO.



Lots, lots more to come in the days and weeks and months ahead. I will probably not be the best source for most of it, however. I'll be here writing, while David and Dan will be out in the center of the storm, writing the scripts and supervising pre-production.

On other fronts, I hit page 1311 yesterday. No, not done yet.

For some reason, got nothing written today.

Cool, and congrats on the HBO deal getting the greenlight.

Any news on the video game? Being done by Cyanide... right?

George, I just choked on my coffee and had to slip outside for a moment to let out a triumphant scream; now I'll just have to explain the persisting beatific smile to my colleague across the desk! These are excellent news, many, many congrats, all well-deserved! My trust in HBO is yet again validated!

No small parts and Statement of Retained Earnings
Ian McNiece will be amazing. I'd hoped against hope he'd play Varys after hearig Roy Dotrice do his thing. They sounded so similar. Also, Jon Carroll Lynch would make a perfect Mandon Moore. He did chop off Tyrion's nose, scariest of the Kingsguard, paunchy dead eyes. Probly booked, but he's done supporting roles for HBO last decade. Btw.. will Roy Dotrice do ADwD? Your 1st audiobooks are oop, bootleg only. Might be a good source of revenue to reopen. I'd buy them like old Chuck Palahniuk and his Amy Hempel's.

HBO or the Book?
Now we have 2 things to eagerly await.
I am not sure if more people are anxious for the series or the next book... (probably not.)

I in the meantime will continue to read the series (This time in German - which will take a while!) and anxiously await both.

Thanks,
John
