Recently Stephen King was in Albuquerque, New Mexico for his End of Watch book tour and he was interviewed by none other than George R.R. Martin at an event. King was in Albuquerque for the book tour for the third and final installment of his Bill Hodges Trilogy, which began in 2014 with the publication of Mr. Mercedes. In less than 3 years Stephen King has published 3 books and all of us know what’s the situation when it comes to the A Song of Ice and Fire book series. The last book, titled A Dance With Dragons was published way back in 2011 and it’s 2016 right now and we are not sure if the book will be published this year or not.
There’s a huge difference in the pace at which these two authors publish their novels. Naturally, even George R.R. Martin had this in his mind and he asked King about it. There’s no video of this interview but Reddit user jmsturm shared details of the event and it included a particularly interesting question by George R.R. Martin for Stephen King. Here’s what was posted on Reddit.
Great night, most of the night was about Mr King, but he did answer a few questions from Stephen about how he started writing and such.
Moment of the night:
Stephen King told George there was time for 1 more question. George asked him “How the fuck do you write so fast? I have a good six months and crank out 3 chapters, meanwhile you wrote 3 books in that time!”
Stephen answered that he writes almost every day and demands 6 pages a day from him self. George was amazed by that.
He replied “You always get six pages? You never get constipated? You never get up and go get the mail, and think ‘Maybe I don’t have any talent and should have been a plumber?'”
It was pretty funny.
After the event, Stephen King shared the following photo on his Facebook page.
Even George R.R. Martin shared few photos from the event on his blog and he also mentioned that a video of the interview will be available soon.
Richard Madden and Kit Harington hit the red carpet at Marvel’s Eternals World Premiere
Game of Thrones stars are no strangers to being in the limelight, but two of the most notable members of the cast have moved on to one of the very few franchises in the world that are bigger than Thrones — the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kit Harington and Richard Madden recently hit the red carpet at Eternals World Premiere, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest film to grace the big screen.
Harington, 34, and Madden, 35, rose to fame after playing half brothers Jon Snow and Robb Stark, respectively, on HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones. They will be reuniting after almost a decade on screen on Marvel’s upcoming movie Eternals, starring as fan favourite superheroes from The Eternals comic book series.
Madden has been tapped in to play Ikaris, a hero from an ancient race of beings descended from celestials. While Harington will play Dane Whitman, aka The Black Knight, a human who gains superpowers after gaining access to a mystical sword.
Harington hit the red carpet with a brown shirt under a pinstriped suit coat, with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. He also wore matching black pinstriped pants with a black leather watch strapped to his left wrist.
His co-star Madden opted for a more formal look with a black tuxedo coat over a white dress shirt and black bowtie. The actor sported the early scruff of a growing beard on the red carpet, though it was not as full as his co-star. He completed his look with black tuxedo pants and shiny black shoes for the world premiere red carpet event.

George R. R. Martin loved the House of The Dragon’s teaser trailer
House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.
Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:
“Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).
For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.
(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”
Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!
A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square
The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.
The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower
Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
