A Song Of Ice and Fire Movie!

My all time favorite fantasywriter (George R. R. Martin) is gonna be a HBO series! Maybe. Supposedly March is the month HBO big whigs are going to make their decision to greenlight (or not) the series. Think of it, kiddies! ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ in an HBO miniseries model, partially underwritten by the BBC a la Rome! It was (poorly) described as ” ‘Soprano’s’ in Middle Earth.” That is probably the worst description ever, but it STILL makes me drool in fanboy geeklust (no, that’s not a homoerotic statement).

Anyway, if you are kool and in-the-know you are ALREADY lighting candles at your GRRM altars to try and work some mojo and get the next book out of the old man. Better light another candle! Woo hoo!

P.S. If you haven’t read the ‘Tyrion’ chapter on Martin’s website, its worth checking out. Here is a link to the ‘Dance With Dragons’ sample on his homepage. I’d seen it sitting there for quite some time…but knowing how long Martin has pushed back the release of the long-awaited book (rumored to be the second-longest novel in the series), I kept putting off reading it…rationing it out, as it were, like a precious few drops of remaining water to a man walking through the desert of unreleased novels. A great thirst overcame me tonight, and I read the excerpt greedily. And, of course, now I just want more…Anyway…enjoy!
