Man, that sounds good. Too good to be true. Tomorrow. Tomorrow! I love ya, tomorrow! (You’re alwaaaaaaaaaaaays a daaaaaaaaay aaaaaaaaawaaaaaaaay!)
(I digress. As ever.)
if I am writing “boy fiction,” who are all those boys with breasts who keep turning up by the hundreds at my signings and readings?”
George expressed his thanks to the many responses Bellafante’s review garnered, especially to the horde of “Geek Girls” (like this one by Amy Ratcliffe, and this one by Geek Girl Diva, and this one by Jennings Roth Cornet, and even this one by straight-to-the-point @Llywellyn on Twitter) who took to the WorldWeirdWeb in righteous response. George said:
thank you, geek girls! I love you all.”
In a related topic (aren’t they all?) Daniel Abraham of Orbit Books wrote a succinct yet thoughtful piece called Reviewing the Reviewers. Check it out!
Collider interviewed David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. You have to wonder how the boys are holding up with only one day to go. They still seem brimming with energy and enthusiasm! There are far too many choice quotes here to isolate even a few. This is a really good read.
Another good read are the four interviews Richard Edwards of SFX (UK) conducted. Featured are Mark Addy, Jason Momoa, Harry Lloyd, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Jason Momoa was recently photographed for Vogue Magazine. Yes, Vogue Magazine. (It probably surprised him too.) But damn if that’s not one fine looking man.
Let rumor be truth! Hollywood Spy reports season 2 is a go! Of course it’s … frickin’ … Hollywood Spy. And they basically just take rumors they’ve heard in other sources and (sometimes) report them as truths. No confirmation as yet. (But it’s a good bet.)
Lastly, I always like tea with my Wertzone Breakfast! Here, Adam Whitehead gives his brief impressions (more to come) on the first two episodes, viewed by him at the BAFTAs.
Fire And Blood: I mentioned we have one day to go, right? There’s really not much more to say… other than to thank the fans and readers we here at Winter-Is-Coming.net have garnered over the last few years. Whether old or new… you’ve been the best. You’ve supported the bottom at every opportunity. We’re entering a brand new era now. We’re going to see an influx of people (and I will personally ensure it by name-dropping our asses at any inappropriate moment), possibly a whole flood after tomorrow, but more likely a trickle that will grow exponentially (and badassily) as the season wears on.
Treat the n00bs with kindness, patience, and with spoilers in mind. There’s a reason D&D say A Song of Ice and Fire has some of the most intelligent fans on the earth: it’s pretty much true. Tweenyboppers we are not. Hold your heads high, scions of House Gatewatch, and remember, fantasy nerds—you’re pretty freaking cool in our eyes. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Now let’s do this thing for real!
Edit: One more response from Matt Marquez at …ology. WiC even gets a mention! Thanks, brah!
