Tonight’s the night.
It has been three years since GAME OF THRONES wound up its run on HBO… and way way longer since we began the development of the successor series that eventually became HOUSE OF THE DRAGON.
You have been reading all about it for days… or weeks… or months… depending on how closely you follow the news out of Westeros. Me, I’ve done more interviews that I can count. We had a huge panel in Hall H at San Diego Comicon, and red carpet premieres in Los Angeles, Amsterdam, London, India, Sweden… sundry other place… and right here in Santa Fe at the Jean Cocteau Cinema. There’s an amazing 3D billboard in NYC overlooking Times Square. There’s more content on YouTube than anyone can keep track of. Archmaester Gyldayn’s history FIRE & BLOOD is back on the bestseller lists and climbing (you can get signed copies from Beastly Books). Reviews have been pouring in, most good, some bad.
I don’t know what else I can possibly say, except…
HOUSE OF THE DRAGON premieres tonight on HBO and HBO Max.
Whatever happens from here, my sincere thanks go out to Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, to one of the most astonishing casts it has ever been been my honor to work with, to an incredible crew, to an amazing writing staff, to my friends at HBO, past and present, who have worked for years to bring HOT D to fruition… and to the fans, without whom none of this would be possible.
And a tip of my cap to my editors, publishers, and readers as well. It all began forty odd years ago… with a book.
Watch the show. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
