Make Mine Malta

I've left the winds and rain and mud of Belfast behind, and I'm now on sunny Malta in the middle of the Med. Sorta. Actually, yesterday I was on the streets of King's Landing watching Yoren school Arya in being a boy, and today I was way out east on the edge of the Dothraki sea, as Dany tended her stricken sun and stars.

I'm seeing some great stuff. Really truly. We have an AMAZING cast, and it's a privilege to see them in action.

Okay, okay, not everything is idyllic. There were torrential rains on Malta last week that washed away a whole Dothraki camp (missed that), and back in Belfast two of our actors have taken a dislike to each other and got in a fight that left one of them bloodied... but other than that...

More when I get home... if I can find the energy...

The HBO adaptation will certainly be great, according to what you wrote. Since finishing The Song of I&F I have been looking for a book which could meet the literaly level of The Song and I still haven't found anything. Reminds me the situation after reading Tolkien's novels. Somebody recommended The Pillars of the Earth to me, but it was terribly boring and the movie adaptation of The Pillars is a total washout. I think I need to get hold of HBO ...

yes yes, all great... but ummm, this fan of pugilistic activities wants more juice on the bruises! Who fought who and who left with their tail between their legs!?!?

Obviously I know the chances of more on this subject are slim to none... but Im willing to toss the dice.

What I wouldn't do to have been there with you today! It poured with rain all day in Dublin. We had a nice lunch in Gallagher's Boxty house, and some of us went on to visit archeological National Museum. Glad you having nice time, despite elements of jealousy rising at thoughts of getting to see Yoren and Arya together.

I've always wanted to visit Malta - take pictures!! :)

cool stuff
Sounds amazing. I can only imagine what it must be like to see your creation brought to life. Congratulations and can't wait to see the series next year!!

"back in Belfast two of our actors have taken a dislike to each other and got in a fight that left one of them bloodied..." Hope everyone is okay, but I laughed when I read that, only because it seemed like two characters strait out of George's stories---random acts of violence and all that.

I wonder if the two cast members who got into a fight were the animal actors (i.e. Direwolves)~ :)

This is the answer.
Nov. 2nd, 2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
Ouch. Did they internalise their roles a bit too well? ;)

World Fantasy Con was less badass without you.

I'm still considering re-reading the whole Ice & Fire series... but this being national novel writing month, I'd be crippled by my inability to stop reading.

50,000 words in one month must come first! Can't wait to see the show! AH!

A fight? Was it between Gregor and the Dog? If so...then the cameras should have rolled!

DVD extras
I hope the fist fight (between the actors, not to be confused with the fight at the fist of the First Men) is included in the extras when the DVDs finally roll around.

That post was like the end to all of your chapters in Storm of Swords! One thing you and HBO have in common: the ability to plunge us into a state of anticipation.

What To Read After The Ice and the Fire
Read Steven Erikson's "THE MALAZAN BOOK OF THE FALLEN" series, which begins with GARDENS OF THE MOON. You're in luck, there's 8 or 9 books already published, and the series is about to end in a year or so...

Re: What To Read After The Ice and the Fire
I've tried to start Gardens of the Moon twice and haven't yet reached the point where it grabbed me and wouldn't let me go. I've got so much stacked up right now but I'll probably get back to it eventually.

It probably has a lot to do with where I was as a "reader" when I tried to start it. I had been strictly an audiobook reader for several years when I first picked up Gardens of the Moon. I don't think I had the patience for it at the time. Now that I'm back to actually turning pages perhaps I'll feel differently about it.
