George R. R. Martin On His Next Book
 2019-05-30 05:06:21 ET by Jack Anderson

Game of Thrones ended with quite the controversial finale. Some enraged fans couldn't believe what some of their beloved characters had become. Now that a few days have passed, some admirers of the Westeros world are placing their hopes and dreams into the hands of author George R. R. Martin, which has only released five out of the planned seven books about the Seven REVEAL THE SPOILER! Kingdoms main series – not counting prequels and other works.

On his (not a) blog, Martin revealed some details on his current work, after being offered by Air New Zealand to come to New Zealand for free in order to complete his book:

As for finishing my book… I fear that New Zealand would distract me entirely too much. Best leave me here in Westeros for the nonce. But I tell you this — if I don’t have THE WINDS OF WINTER in hand when I arrive in New Zealand for worldcon, you have here my formal written permission to imprison me in a small cabin on White Island, overlooking that lake of sulfuric acid, until I’m done. Just so long as the acrid fumes do not screw up my old DOS word processor, I’ll be fine.

Worldcon will take place in the Summer of 2020, which could mean that the release of The Winds Of Winter could be imminent.

Martin also reflected on the time that has passed so quickly since the inception of the Game of Thrones series:
The last night, the last show. After eight epic seasons, HBO’s GAME OF THRONES series has come to an end.

It is hard to believe it is over, if truth be told. The years have gone past in the blink of an eye. Can it really have been more than a decade since my manager Vince Gerardis set up a meeting at the Palm in LA, and I sat down for the first time with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for a lunch that lasted well past dinner? I asked them if they knew who Jon Snow’s mother was. Fortunately, they did.

That was how it started. It ended last night.

I had no clue, that afternoon at the Palm, that I was about to embark on a journey that would change my life. I had optioned books and stories for television and film before. Some had even been made. There was no way to know that this one was going to be different, that this pilot would not only be shot, but would go on to become the most successful show in the history of HBO, win a record number of Emmy Awards, become the most popular (and most pirated) show in the world, and transform a group of talented but largely unknown actors into major celebrities and stars. Even less did I imagine that I would somehow become a celebrity as well… and if truth be told, I’m still not sure how that happened.

It has been a wild ride, to say the least. (...) I could go on and on… and have, as I’ve been writing this post in my head… but there’s really too much to say. Parting is such sweet sorrow, the Bard wrote. In the weeks and months to come, I may post about some of my favorite moments from the making of this show… now and again, when I am feeling nostalgic… but just now, there are so many memories, and no time to do them all justice.

He then went on about the future of the cast and crew, as well as the future of the Game of Thrones franchise on television:

Let me say this much — last night was an ending, but it was also a beginning. Nobody is retiring any time soon. David and Dan are going on to STAR WARS and other projects beyond that. Amazon scooped up Bryan Cogman, and put him to work on developing shows of his own, as well as helping out on their big Tolkien project. Our brilliant cast has scattered to the four winds, but you’ll be seeing a lot of them in the years to come, in all manner of television shows and movies. Our directors are keeping busy as well. I suspect that you have not seen the last of Westeros on your television sets either, but I guess that all depends on how some of these successor shows turn out.

Finally, he offered some words on his own future and his work on completing the Song of Ice and Fire saga:

And me? I’m still here, and I’m still busy. As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…

And I’m writing. Winter is coming, I told you, long ago… and so it is. THE WINDS OF WINTER is very late, I know, I know, but it will be done. I won’t say when, I’ve tried that before, only to burn you all and jinx myself… but I will finish it, and then will come A DREAM OF SPRING.

How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different?

Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.

I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them. And of course the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…

Book or show, which will be the “real” ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have?

How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.

And did you wonder how one of the most successful writers on the planet write his books? Are you sitting? Then sit. Martin explained that he is writing his books using an application released in the late 70's, named WordStar 4.0.

I actually like it, it does everything I want a word processing program to do and it doesn't do anything else. I don't want any help. I hate some of these modern systems where you type a lower case letter and it becomes a capital letter. I don't want a capital. If I wanted a capital, I would have typed a capital. I know how to work the shift key.

One thing is certain, his new book will never ever be stolen by hackers and released on the Internet beforehand. Sometimes, old is better.

Slayers New Novel Series: Everything We Know So Far
 2019-05-22 11:43:55 ET by Gruic

As we previously announced, Slayers is back with a third part of its novel saga.
After a 16th novel following the events of the Main Novel Series, what can we expect for this new Novel Series?

Here are the first answers from Kanzaka himself taken from an interview with the last Dragon Magazine:

Kanzaka explicitly says that he imagines this third part to be a parallel adventure in the same vein as Try and Knight of Aqualord.
He describes it as a sprawling adventure that can't be limited to just one book. Lina and Gourry will make new encounters, travel to unknown lands, and butt heads with new magical organizations.

He also mentioned that he'd stumbled upon one of the truths of the world after he'd published the latest novel: that a novelist who doesn't write novels is just "an unemployed bum."

Details will be forthcoming in later issues of Dragon Magazine.

We use this opportunity to thank our old friend Rebmatsu.

On another Slayers note, the visual of the Slayers Next Bluray Box was revealed. You can see it below:

After another long hiatus, Young Animal has confirmed that the chapter 358 of Berserk will be on the next magazine.

Regarding the official picture, this new chapter will focus on the character of Griffith. Almost 8 months after the prepublication of Chapter 357, it seems that Guts and Casca fans will have to wait a bit longer for the resolution of the chapter 355 cliffhanger.

First Teaser of Doctor Sleep Shown at CinemaCon
 2019-04-08 04:20:48 ET by Jack Anderson

Almost a year ago, we reported that a sequel to Stanley Kubrick's The Shining would be produced. Titled Doctor Sleep, the film is based on the eponymous novel from cult author Stephen King.

Last week, a sneak peek of the film has been shown at the Las Vegas CinemaCon. While we don't have the video (yet), we can already start to share a few tidbits from the teaser.

The clip begins with a car shot from the air, driving into a forest, in a similar way from Stanley Kubrick's first scene from The Shining.

One of the teaser's taglines is "Witness the conclusion", meaning that this film is the true conclusion of the story.

The last scene is Danny, now an adult, portrayed by Ewan McGregor, looking at a mirror and seeing the infamous REDRUM word. Then, the musical theme from The Shining can be heard.

Doctor Sleep will be released on November 8. Check out the updated cast of the film.

Dossier: The Three Musketeers, Real People or Fictional Characters?
 2018-10-09 07:03:37 ET by Gruic

Everybody knows the characters from The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. The story was first serialised in 1844 and became a huge success and writing inspiration for generations of authors around the world.

As a historical adventure novel, The Three Musketeers mixed real characters with fictional events and stories, making difficult to truly understand where the fiction begins. Here is a very simple dossier about the characters, real people or fictional characters?

this character was in fact Charles de Batz de Castelmore d'Artagnan (around 1611-1673), a real person. He worked for Cardinal Mazarin and served as captain of the Musketeers during the reign of Louis XIV. In 1700, Gatien de Courtilz published his vision of the story of d'Artagnan, a semi-fictionalized memoirs. His works served as the model for The Three Musketeers. D'Artagnan really existed, but his legacy was in fact a historical fiction inspired by a semi-fiction.

Athos: Athos was probably freely inspired by Armand de Sillègue d'Athos d'Autevielle, a real musketeer, but the character is very fictional.

Isaac de Porthau, a gascon musketeer, served as the inspiration for the character of Porthos as well as Henri d'Aramitz, abbot and musketeer, was the basis of the character of Aramis. Both of them are fictional.

M. de Tréville/Tresville: this character was in fact Jean-Armand du Peyrer (1598-1672) from Trois-Ville.

The famous antagonist Milady de Winter is a fictional character, but Alexandre Dumas used the mention of a person named Lucy Hay in the memoirs of d'Artagnan by Gatien de Courtilz as an inspiration to create her.

Of course, main historical characters like Anne d'Autriche or Cardinal Richelieu are based on real people.
