Huge, Huge News

HBO has given the production order.

They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES.

It's just the pilot so far. They'll need to see that before they decide whether to proceed with a full season's episodes. So let's all hope the pilot will kick serious ass.

It should. David Benioff and Dan Weiss did a terrific job with the script. And yes, all of you can relax, it's very faithful. Dan and David will be the executive producers for the pilot and (we hope) the eventual series.

More details when I have 'em. The news is very fresh. HBO just issued their own press release, which should be up on their website soon, if it's not there already.

Winter is coming to HBO. Hot damn.

Great news, but...
This is the best news I've heard in a while, but something inside of me is feeling a slight hint of fear.

HBO is great. But will they see the series out to the end? I am sure then even having one or two seasons is awesome in itself and just getting to see GRRM vision on screen for even perhaps just one episode is something not to complain about.

But what if the show is such a success that they pick it up for all seven seasons? This is where the fear kicks in. Nothing against you George, but your pace is quite slow. This is ok, and I dont really have a problem with it. I've been acquainting myself with Robin Hobb and even Ann Rice for the first time. The reality of life is that book 5 is slow coming to fruition and I can live with that. :)

But what happens if the series is a success and they catch up? All the "kids" will grow up and it will spell calamity I fear!

Garr! Gerr! BLarg! Anyway, this news is wonderful!
