Season One...

 ... is done.

Last night at the Cocteau we completed our screening of season one of GAME OF THRONES, with the showing of "Baelor" and "Fire and Blood."  Believe it or not, we had a dozen virgins in the house, folks who had never seen the show before, never read the books, and had no idea what was coming.  It's always cool to see someone experiencing the series for the first time.

I, of course, have read the books and seen the show... but I hadn't watched these particular episodes for a couple of years, and it was very gratifying to see how well they still held up.  David and Dan and the cast and our incredible crew have done an amazing job.

And speaking of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, they joined us after the episodes for an hour's worth of Q & A with the fans, via Skype.   Aside from the usual technical problems that we encounter every time we try to use Skype, it was a great time.  Thanks, guys.

Next week, the marathon continues with the first three episodes from season two... and a special Skype visit from our very own Sansa, SOPHIE TURNER.

See you at the cinema!

Princess & Queen for David & Dan
Was there any talk with David & Dan about adapting your novella Princess and the Queen last night? It would be lovely to see it on screen with the two of them at the helm.

Ah... no, no talk of that.

David and Dan have their hands full with GAME OF THRONES.

Aside from that, fake history would be very hard to adapt, I guess. For example, I can't imagine a movie or television version of the "Silmarillion".

I can see it being done similar to Troy.

Wonderful that you as an author can still appreciate the taking of ASOFAI viriginity through two mediums. Did you ask them if they are keen to read the book after seeing the television show?

Re: Princess & Queen for David & Dan
I suspect if that ever happened, it might have to be on film. Some of those dragonrider-on-dragonrider fights would be quite difficult to shoot even on GoT's generous TV budget.

But it'd be impressive to see them on screen.
