One of the most exciting news I've read recently:
HBO will be making a TV series based on George R.R. Martin's brilliant "A Song of Fire and Ice" fantasy series! The intention is to have one whole season devoted to one book, with Martin himself writing one episode per season (the other eps will be written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss). HBO makes great series; I'm thinking that this project is going to be on the scale of "Rome."
I can't wait!
