Back From LA

Just back from a week in LA.

I did Conan (the O'Brien, not the Cimmerian) and the Today Show, and taped a segment for a BBC special about Machiavelli... along with the usual dozen or so meeetings.

Also, while in town, swung by the Bookstar in Studio City and signed all their stock of my books, which was considerable. So if you're an Angeleno or just visiting LA, and want to snag an autographed copy of one of my novels, get yourself to Studio City while the supply lasts.

And now I'm back in the land of wolves and savage dust storms, digging out from under.

I actually had a similar concern precisely because I did read the books. I remembered there wasn't meant to be a racial component to the slavery in Essos, and therefore felt it was a shame to have the scene filmed in a such a way.

Definitely understand the costliness of flying people in and the amount of time it would take to find more nationalities to fill up the screen, but I would have appreciated more of an effort when it came to that specific scene, because of the implications it could have (especially on those who haven't read the books and might therefore not understand the nuance, as you suggested).

Hopefully next season will have a more varied POC representation in other locations throughout the show. Basically, I'm holding my breath in anticipation of the Martells, whom I adore with every fiber of my being. ;)

I really love the series, though, and appreciate the time and energy you've spent crafting the world and writing the books - and I love HBO for bringing it to life on the small screen.
