Interview w/ Usona Esperantisto

Jim Henry interviewed David & Sai for Usona Esperantisto, the journal of Esperanto USA. See the article (PDF) or entire issue (PDF).

The version published in Usona is excerpted from a much longer version, which is published on Jim Henry’s website.

You may also want to take a look at HBO’s official Making of Game of Thrones blog, which has glimpses of the production and interviews with other people involved in working on the show. It’s an immense project. We’re honored to be contributing our part alongside so many other talented people who are giving as much attention to detail in all other aspects of the show as we are to the Dothraki language.
