Well, it looks like HBO will begin shooting the pilot episode for George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones in October in Northern Ireland. I am gripped with excitement and trepidation. And at least one character has been cast: Tyrion Lannister, who will be played by Peter Dinklage.
Oh, and remember, if you’re a reader of the unfinished Martin series and you’re upset at the extremely slow pace at which he writes (two wars were begun between book three and four) then keep it to yourself lest you face the wrath of Neil Gaiman. (from wheom the title of this post was taken…)
