I think the brilliant person that wrote Episode 9: "Blackwater" certainly deserves an award!

I can't wait for Season 3, should be a lot better than 2. And I loved Season 2!

Congrats!! And, very good 'competition' for Game of Thrones in the drama category there.

Kind of off-topic
Hi Mr Martin,

First of all, I love your books. They're the first in a long, long time to have captured my attention and imagination so fiercely. So thank you for those wonderful hours in your world.

The reason I'm writing you is to ask you why it is so hard to get your books in Greek. My partner is Greek and she would absolutely love to read your books but as English is not her first language this is tricky.

They are crazy expensive, there doesn't seem to be a digital copy anywhere, and I can only find the first two books in print. Not to mention but apparently (I can't read Greek) the translation is not good at all.

Maybe you're not aware but I just thought I'd ask, perhaps I've missed somewhere I can download the books in Greek.

Either way, thanks again, I can't wait for the next book.

My books are in something like forty languages. Sorry, but I can't keep track of stuff like this.

Congratulations, Sir! And congrats to all the rest as well. Slowly but surely I'm getting all those around me to watch your show, and now they're all thanking me and waiting for the next season. Congrats again. Love the show, infatuated with the books!

I feel like this show really stands out as an illustration of the potential for a really successful adaptation of an epic series to the screen, and while I would never downplay the crew as a whole I think the writers deserve credit for that first and foremost. I'm a bit biased, though, as it's irritating for me that directors typically receive far more praise and acknowledgement than screenwriters. Sure, there's a lot of creative licensing with directing, but that starts with the writers! Without a good script you have nothing.

Now, if Stephen King's Dark Tower series could be adapted with even half the love and devotion that went into making Game of Thrones what it is today, I would be very, very happy.

This one means something!

Congratulations to all concerned. Woot!

You should win.
