Song of Ice and Fire on the Little Screen
It made my day today when I discovered George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, Song of Ice and Fire, will become an HBO series. Martin is one of my favorite authors, and it will be exciting to see a quality epic fantasy brought to television. Martin's books would not be good material for movies because they are longer, with more complex plots, than LOTR. The plan for now is to make each book in the series one season. Hey—I wonder if HBO needs an extra screenwriter for the project?
