Winter is Coming to HBO.

A Game of Thrones

A high fantasy series on HBO?

Well well well. I’m a couple weeks behind on this one, but HBO has ordered a pilot for a new series based on the epic high fantasy series called A Song of Ice and Fire, by author George R. R. Martin (who has committed to writing at least one episode per season).

The first season will span the length of the first book, A Game of Thrones. Each season thereafter will also span another book (it is a seven books series, four of them already writ, book five on the way).

But don’t get bogged down in the details, just get ready for some violence, romance, dragons, direwolves, sex, wights, knights, dwarves, bastards, tragedies, victories, kings and sellswords…..all on HBO!!

Move over, Xena. Step aside, Conan.

Okay okay, I have to go now, I’m 600 pages into book three (A Storm of Swords) and smiling at the prospect of seeing some of fantasy’s most interesting, flawed characters coming to my living room soon.
