The announcement that epic television series Game of Thrones would begin filming in Belfast in June caused ripples of excitement in the city, but for many science fiction and fantasy fans around the world it was momentous news.
US broadcaster HBO filmed a pilot in October and November in the city, and it was revealed last week that nine more programmes have now been commissioned.
A number of websites dedicated to the series based on the first book of George R.R. Martin’s multi-volume A Song of Ice and Fire series have been set up, eagerly seizing on any new information or gossip about the production.
One of them is Winter is Coming, a fansite set up by New Jersey man Phil Bicking in November 2008 when the pilot was first commissioned.

The more I hear about Game of Thrones, the more I am intrigued by it. I also love the idea of the characters all being ‘shades of grey’. I love morally ambiguous characters. I guess I’m going to have to put RR Martin on my reading list! Riverworld’s trailer looks awesome too.
