I’m not sure if anyone here has read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice series (as far as it is, at least). It’s an excellent fantasy series (that is actually somewhat light on the fantasy). It’s political intrigue with a bunch of great characters for you to love and hate. The books leave you wanting more, more more. (When is that stupid fifth book coming out, anyway?)
A year or more ago Entertainment Weekly had a blurb about HBO picking up the rights to these books to make them into a series. And this week Entertainment Weekly had a couple pages of pictures from the set. Sweet!
You can see some of them, plus others, online here.
I will more than likely be subscribing to HBO in the spring just to be able to watch this.
