We have many, many months until Game of Thrones season 3 premieres, and god knows how many years before George R.R. Martin completes The Winds of Winter. But if you’re jonesing for any kind of GoT content like me, this promo for theInside HBO’s Game of Thrones hardcover — which is chock-full of set photos, concept art, storyboards, costume designs, and interview with the cast and crew — is exactly what you need to keep on going. At least until the book itself is released on September 25th, which will hopefully carry us through until HBO starts showing previews and clip for season 3 in the winter. /slaps inside of elbow, trying to find a vein
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
