comment Meaning of “game of thrones”
@Marthaª: Game of Thrones has become very popular as a TV series recently. The novel, which is titled "A Game of Thrones", comprises the TV series created by HBO. As the name "Game of Thrones" (without an A) belongs to the TV series, I recommended Movies.SE.

comment Is it correct to use this expression in an email: “Attached you may find …”?
@jwpat7: Hi. I think you misunderstood the point of my question. This is not a duplicate because the "comma part" is just a side-question. My main question is about grammaticality of "Attached you may find ..." expression.
