Exciting news about the Game of Thrones TV adaptation

Just catching up on all this. Casting has been underway. Sean Bean as Eddard Stark is AWESOME. He was cast last month. Others that have been named so far include Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister.

This will be on HBO, produced as a pilot with the option for a series. Production is to commence in October.

Maybe by then we'll have an update on the next book in the series. I know how tough it is to write, but seriously, this book series started in 1996. I love the books, but I am getting older and my eyes are getting tired...

Flame and Bone

When I was made from fire
Poured into the tender vessel of caution
That keeps my smoke from rising
Quickly did I discover that apart from crisp drizzles or falling snow
The world chilled my touched
Walking the narrow cornered gap between girders and cut stone
One learns to tuck his shoulders in or risk
Jostling a neighbor passing by rapt with want
For a clear path without the distraction
Of another man's boiling eyes
The tip of a finger
That oldest of all weapons
Grown deadlier and pristine in its invention
Gathers a mote of a cinder on its bare flesh
And turns pondering how best to scratch the impious itch
Prying open the tender seam
Where the oil of thought dews
Offering a new wick to ignite
Squirming alive as a salamander of mischief
That yearns for a taste of air it is so ready to devour
The steam of breath betrays me
Before the glint of orange spreads
In popping bright waves
Eroding the fibers feeding it
Leaving naught but ash
As my shell of quietude falls away
