Winter is your coffee tables thanks to the newly-released behind the scenes tome "Inside Game of Thrones." A few weeks ago We spoke with the book's author, Bryan Cogman about the book, but now, you can get a copy all to yourself!


This week, HBO released the official companion to their hit show Game of Thrones, appropriately titled “Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones.” You can check out our earlier look at the book here, but what we didn’t get was the skinny on how the whole thing came together. Turns out? It was almost an accident, at least according to Game of Thrones Story Editor, and author of the book Bryan Cogman.

“It started with me standing on a beach while we were shooting Season Two,” said Cogman over the phone from Belfast, where Season Three is currently on location. “We were shooting the scene where they were burning the Seven Idols, and David Benioff turned to me and said, ‘They’re doing a making of book.’ I said, ‘Oh great!’ and he said, ‘And you’re going to write it.’”


Are you ready for this Sunday’s Season Two premiere of Game of Thrones? Want the inside scoop on how HBO’s hit show came to be, and what goes on behind the Iron Throne, in book form? Well, you’ll have to wait on that – but like Winter, a new coffee table book called Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones is coming.

The book from Chronicle and HBO is still in production, so we probably won’t get a glimpse of it for the next few months. And in fact, the volume won’t be on book stands until the Fall. But we do have some info for you on what it will contain, right now:

- The book is written by Bryan Cogman, who you might know better as the writer of two season one episodes, and Story Editor on most of the show so far.

- A forward by A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin, followed by an afterword that will be available six years from now. Just kidding.
