Season Four...

... is almost at hand.

Tonight's the night.  Did I mention that?  Oh... I did...

 "Two Swords."  Episode one of season four, written and directed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.  It's a helluva season episode.  I've seen it three times now, at various premieres, but I'm looking forward to seeing it a fourth time this evening.

 And next week, "The Lion and the Rose," the episode I scripted myself.  I haven't seen that one at all, but various folks I trust tell me it came at well, so I'm looking forward to seeing it for myself.

 Anyone doing anything special in the way of premiere parties?  We're partied out ourselves, after the New York, Brooklyn, and Santa Fe premieres, so we're staying home, gathering round the tube, and laying in some ribs and pulled pork and brisket from Whole Hog.

Usually I make cheese & onion pie from A Feast of Ice & Fire for dinner on Episode 1 Night - it's my favorite of the dishes therein, at least in part because it's one of the dishes I chose to pack in the basket I brought you at one of your ADWD signings back a few years ago! But this year my guy and I are making a seasoned pork pie, mashed potatoes, pearl onions in gravy, and a nice salad for dinner. But it'll just be the two of us, no big parties.

No parties here unfortunately since I'm under the weather but I'm really excited for the premiere, the entire season actually. I need that universal remote from Click so I can fast forward my life for a couple of hours.

Seven HELLS, I am absolutely STOKED! Hosting a Premier party and Feast at my place, complete with Old Bears Hot Spiced Wine, Blandissory, Honeyed Chicken, Honey Cakes, and the oh so customary Bread and Salt (for protection, of course). Doing a marathon re-watch of Season 3 now, and we plan to toast to Robb and Catelyn after Episode 9. Certainly NOT looking forward to seeing the Red Wedding again (shakes fist at you).

All three seasons and five books have been absolutely thrilling so far. Kudos good Ser. Carry on, and may the Gods be with you :)

So excited
Can't wait!! I am a massive fan! Love the TV series and your books :)

Not a party as such but I do have a big mug of tea and a chocolate cake.

Seasoning 4
I'm sure the title speaks to one of the saddest occurrences of the books. I'm not sure why but the death of that one inanimate object had a bigger emotional impact on me than most character deaths.

The pulled pork sounds great. We've been marinating steaks for the grill, oysters for the BBQ, and a fresh strawberry spinach salad, and a strawberry glaze pie. I'm feeling a little Abner Marsh'ish just reciting the menu. Here's to a great premier George!

"Some ribs and pulled pork and brisket from Whole Hog."

Oh dear. Now I'm hungry.

Looking forward to a wonderfully fun season. :) Thanks for your fantastic books, and for Tyrion.

season 4
Season 4 and feedback - Mr. Martin, season four sounds great! I already read the books, but it still will be great to watch. You are right about feedback. In the little writing experience I have, feedback is greatly valued. I sent you a fan letter earlier in March, and after I sent it I finished dream songs 1 and I started 2. The Tuf stories are amazing, and Sandkings was one of the best short stories that I have read. I just wanted to say that, because it was not included in the letter. Also, I forgot to include a reply letter in my fan mail, and I am sorry about that! Fevre River told me that they could supply postage, so that is a relief. Anyway, you are my favorite author, and I am very excited to continue reading your works! - Caleb Spall

Just ordered some Chinese and we're settling in to get ready! It's the first season I'll watch along with my boyfriend, and having read the books myself while he hasn't, I'm so excited to see how he reacts to all the new interesting twists and turns this season! I know there's some good ones coming that'll knock his socks off! Thanks George :D

Can't wait for the premier tonight! We will just have a quiet evening at home.

Our weekly viewing party every year, with a friend having a birthday as well, thus a ginormous five-pound "Happy Name Day" cake as well...no swords involved.

Episode 1 plans
Went north and south with a North/Dorne inspired breakfast of bacon, hardbread with orange marmalade, eggs, potatoes, and a veggie blend of zucchini, corn, and pistachios tossed with tikka masala sauce, sriracha, and sprinkled with smoked ghost chili pepper flakes.
Tonight, it's herb roasted chicken, roasted potatoes and grilled onions, roasted asparagus and honey wheat ale.
Dessert while watching Episode 1, is baked pear with honey and cinnamon served with dried berries, nuts and ice cream.

We get to watch it simultaneously from Argentina so I’m very excited. My mom and I are great fans of yours and the books. We’re currently reading the fifth book very slowly so we make it last! Thanks for the amazing times!!

Can't wait
The show is getting closer and closer to the end of the books and I'm waiting... This weekend I introduced the fiance to Game of Thrones season 1. So now we're hating Cercei and the Lannisters who killed Ned. Now our feet are up and one hour to go to season 4. Guess the fiance is getting a preview of what's to come.
