Lights, Camera, Action

It's evening in Belfast, and the first day of shooting is now in the can.

Feels strange. Exciting, but also... I don't know, maybe I'm feeling a bit of empty nest syndrome. My kids have left home, and are making their own way in the world.

I'd wish good luck to everyone involved in the HBO production, but I recall that you never say that in the theatre. Maybe everyone concerned break several legs.

And me... well, a blank computer screen awaits. Still a lot of story to tell.

I do want to tell you that, from a history major's point of view, I found that to be SUCH a nice touch indeed.

Subtle details like that (common noble naming conventions), are what make this series so "real" feeling, despite being a fictional world in a fantasy setting. This is just a single example of how magnificently you do this throughout the books - you weave elements of believable medieval/Renaissance history into this fictitious setting. That's why yours are the fantasy books I recommend to readers who aren't typically 'fantasy' people.

So:

Thank you for that. Very, very much.
