Tomorrow night, on HBO.

Neil Marshall returns, with a battle even bigger than "Blackwater."  Should rival or surpass any battle ever seen before on television.

Keep your swords sharp.

And be afraid.  Be very afraid.

(No, I haven't seen the episode yet).

The response to our fund-raising campaign on Prizeo has been nothing less than mind-boggling.

One day into the campaign, the original $150,000 goal and the subsequent $200,000 goal have both been met and surpassed.  As I type, donations stand at $231,000, and we have raised the goal to $400,000.  And we still have 58 days to go!

Every donations helps, whether large or small.  You guys have made me very proud.

I am told this is the fastest-rising campaign in the history of Prizeo.

Hey, hey, hey.

We're number one.


For the details:

I loved THE SOPRANOS.  But I gotta admit, it's good to be the king.

Me and the Wolves

How would you like to visit Santa Fe, spend a day with me, see my collection of toy knights and medieval miniatures, sample some green chile and carne adovada, then take a helicopter down to Candy Kitchen, New Mexico and the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary to meet the Westeros pack?

Well, now's your chance.

I've teamed up with the good folks at to raise some funds for two of my favorite charities — the aforementioned Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, and the Food Depot here in Santa Fe, where they feed the hungry people of Northern New Mexico.  Win the grand prize, and we'll fly you in from wherever you may be in the world for the day described above.  Every donation has a chance to win… but there are all sorts of other cool premiums and prizes as well, for various levels of donations.  T-shirts, signed maps, signed books,a signed script,  breakfast at worldcon or comicon.  You can die horribly in WINDS OF WINTER… and I'm even donating my well-worn Greek fisherman's cap!


For more details, go to

Win or lose, it's all for a good cause, or rather two good causes.

Help the wolves, and feed some hungry people.

You'll have my thanks.

Antboy Is Coming

So Marvel has dismissed director Edgar Wright from the long-awaited (by me, anyway) ANT-MAN movie he was helming.

Very distressing.  I love Ant-Man (and the Wonderful Wasp).  I am still outraged that they were left out of THE AVENGERS film.  They were founding members of the group, after all.  Which can't be said for their replacements, Hawkeye and Black Widow.

But hey, hey, have no fear.  If you're feeling a serious lack of ant-based superheroics, the Jean Cocteau Cinema is coming to your rescue.  Marvel won't be giving us ANT-MAN until 2015, if ever, but this weekend the Jean Cocteau is debuting the first Danish superhero movie:

Come and check it out!  Showtimes on our website.

And we have lots more excitement at the theatre this weeked too.  More about that later.
