It’s been a couple of years since the “Game Of Thrones” saga ended on HBO but now there is a prequel series coming to the hot streaming network HBO Max. They’ve just released a short teaser trailer and you can enjoy that below along with some of the premise and casting. Take a look.
The Premise: House of the Dragon is an upcoming American fantasy drama television series created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan J. Condal for HBO. It is a prequel to the television series Game of Thrones (2011–2019) and is based on Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood. The series begins 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and chronicles the beginning of the end of House Targaryen and the events leading up to the Targaryen civil war, known as the “Dance of the Dragons”.

Back in July, I shared the nominees for the 45th Annual Saturn Awards and you actually don’t need to refer to that post since I’ve decided to not only list the winning names with this kind of narrative but also those who each honoree went head to head against. I think that it makes this kind of post a little more interesting and since this is a lengthy read, I will get right on down to business. Take a look at who won and who didn’t and know that I shall return at the close with some additional editorial viewpoints. Remember that this is an event curated by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Enjoy.
