Coming together for the very first time in public: Barry Ira Geller, producer of Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light, and Mark Newbauer, producer of George R. R. Martin's novella The Skin Game. Zelazny's Lord of Light won the 1968 Hugo and became the foundation of stories of people becoming real gods and their dramatic consequences. Martin has long stated that Game of Thrones was inspired by Lord of Light, readying now for TV production. Newbauer and Geller discuss how they are merging their energies to create plans for both TV/film production of Lord of Light and The Skin Game. Both literary properties have spawned their own competition in the marketplace over the years, yet both are the acknowledged pinnacles in their genres of fantasy and horror. Joining them for the discussion will be Mike Royer, famed Marvel and Disney inker. Jack Kirby's favorite inker and inker of the Lord of Light series of drawings which the CIA used to get people out of Iran in 1979.
