Game of Thrones fans, Westeros needs you!

Fans are being invited to submit artwork, songs, photographs, recipes and stories to be part of a new official compendium of the show.

All submissions must pertain to events that took place during series one to four of the TV series (so you can’t include anything from A Dance with Dragons).

Fans whose work is chosen will receive a copy of the book with their name listed as a contributor.

To find out more visit gameofthronescompendium.com. The book should be released in 2015.

The classic story of Little Women is to be brought into the modern age in a new drama for US TV.

The miniseries, which will be made by ABC and is being produced by British actress Natascha McElhone.

She’s expected to also star in the series which will see the March girls coming of age against the backdrop of a military scandal leading their family to lose their its fortune and position.

I have to say I have serious reservations about this. I read Louisa May Alcott’s stories as a teenager and have loved them ever since. I hope they don’t change them too much.
