George R.R. Martin opens his own bookstore called “Beastly Books”

Published

on


Game of Thrones creator author George R. R. Martin is always under attack from his fans for doing everything but finishing up the next book in the series, The Winds of Winter. The latest in the line of things that George does that aren’t about releasing that book, is the fact that he has now opened up his own bookstore. Read on!

As many of you might already know, George is a resident of Santa Fe, New Mexico. He already has a cinema house there, named the Jean Cocteau Cinema, which he started in 2013. GRRM has now opened a new bookstore named Beastly Books, right next to the cinema.

The bookstore is apparently named after Beauty and the Beast, which is known as Jean Cocteau’s most popular film, as well as the name of a TV show GRRM worked on in the 80s. He made the announcement on his Not a Blog. Explaining the motive behind starting this establishment, George wrote:

“We’ve been doing amazing author events at the Jean Cocteau Cinema ever since we reopened the theatre in August, 2013.  Dozens of terrific, award-winning, bestselling writers have appeared at the JCC to speak, read, and sign their books… SF writers, mystery writers, historical novelists, romance writers, thriller writers, mainstream literary writers, YA authors, non-fiction writer and journalists… the list goes on and on.

And all of them have signed stock for us.   The only problem was the Jean Cocteau lobby was far too small for us to display all of these wonderful autographed books.”

The store will have a section of signed copies of GRRM’s works, in addition to signed works of numerous other popular authors.

So if you’re ever in Santa Fe, you know what to do. Hit us up in the comments, down below!

Published

Mysaria

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving fast with its production, and we can expect a spring release in 2022. Most of the main characters have been cast, and HBO has officially declared who’s playing who in the much-awaited prequel. With set pictures leaking quite often on the internet, the fans are getting a glimpse of more cast members in action. Recently, four new characters were added to the acting roster, according to the latest rumours.

As reported by the Redanian Intelligence, the following members are the latest addition to House of The Dragon:

Rosa Escoda as a young Mysaria – Mysaria, whose older version is played by Sonoya Mizuno, is one of several characters portrayed by two actors to accommodate the decade-spanning events of the series. She is a lowlife dancer who quickly rises in ranks after becoming Daemon Targaryen’s love interest.

Edward Rowe as Ser Howland Sharp – A knight of House Sharp from the Iron Islands.

Bijan Daneshmand as The Priest – There’s not much information yet, but we’re hoping for him to be a red priest, so we can have a look at the backstory of the Lord of the light.

Nina Barker-Francis as Jayne – No additional information about her character as well, hopefully, we’ll get more news in future.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon commences in Caceres

House of The Dragon is in Spain! The Game of Thrones prequel is one of the highly anticipated shows of 2022, and HBO is leaving no stone unturned to once again ride high on the GoT fever. As we know filming in the Spanish city of Caceres already began on October 11th, here are some of the pictures from behind-the-set that were taken right before the production began.

As posted by House the Dragons Twitter account, it is clear that the set is ready and some of the most important scenes from the prequel series will be filmed here. This is because as earlier reported, some of the leaks showed the set was being prepared to look like Game of Thrones’ Flea Bottom. Hence King’s Landing will be close by and we can witness some royal action being filmed here.
