As pointed out by commenter dizzy in the last post, George has mentioned the pilot in one of his Not A Blog posts. While only mentioned in passing, it is at least some confirmation that development on the project is on going.
I also spent part of the day on email correspondence with a WARRIORS author about his story, talked to my editor and an artist about the ICE & FIRE concordance, traded some messages regarding developments on the HBO pilot, accepted an offer for that old issue of AMAZING I was looking for, paid my phone bill, and watched an episode of ER and one of MONK that I had TIVO’d earlier. That’s a pretty typical day, actually. I work on DANCE, but not to the exclusion of all else.
Winter Is Coming: News is still extremely slow to come out regarding the project. This is the first official confirmation we have received in months that things are still moving along on the pilot. This should alleviate any fears some folks may have had about a quiet cancellation of the project due to the recent economic downturn. Hopefully more news will be forthcoming soon.
