Billy Connolly cast as Dain Ironfoot, Lord of the Dwarves of the Iron Hills.

No, really.

I saw Carice in Black Death a month or two ago, where she plays a somewhat similar role, and thought she would be awesome as Melisandre. Pity I didn't get online and call it back then.

I kind of pictured a young Christopher Lee as Stannis, but obviously that wasn't going to happen.

So I finally broke down and started Game of Thrones last night. Mostly because I want to read at least the first one before the series comes on.


I've not posted anything in a while yet we've been working really hard on getting news ready for you. So let's just say that we are close to telling you something about when and where it will be and you might find the host city a real surprise.

Don't hold me to it, but I bet we'll have some real news (not just a mean spirited tease like this post is) in the next 8 weeks.

Interesting if true. I'm assuming this is for 2012 (35th anniversary) so this seems a bit far ahead, but I guess they don't want a repeat of last time round.

Let the baseless location speculation begin.

Just finished The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick. Recently started Fatherland by Robert Harris and the third volume of the Histories of Middle-earth, The Lays of Beleriand.

I might be on the wrong site for anyone to get the joke.

They have the rights to anything in LOTR and the Hobbit. Much of the proposed "extra material" is in the Appendices to LOTR--most of the Arwen subplot in the movies actually came from here. But they can't use the Unfinished Tales or the other books.

Right now I assume they'll just incorporate it back into the Hobbit--e.g., showing what other characters, such as Gandalf, were doing "offscreen"--and fill two movies that way, but I'm really not clear on it yet.

^^ I read the first Hunger Games book. I burned through it in a couple of days and enjoyed it, but didn't love it enough to go back for the other two. *shrug*

Just started this:

The world grows colder with each passing year, the longer winters and ever-deepening snows awaking ancient fears within the Degnan Packstead, fears of invasion by armed and desperate nomads, attack by the witchlike and mysterious Silth, able to kill with their minds alone, and of the Grauken, that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct, when meth feeds upon meth.

For Marika, a young pup of the Packstead, loyal to pack and family, times are dark indeed, for against these foes, the Packstead cannot prevail. But awakening within Marika is a power unmatched in all the world, a legendary power that may not just save her world, but allow her to grasp the stars themselves.

From Glen Cook, author of the Black Company and Dread Empire novels, comes Darkwar, collecting for the first time, the stunning science fantasy epic that originally appeared as Doomstalker, Warlock, and Ceremony.
