George Martin fans rejoice!
A Song of Ice and Fire: the TV series

HBO turns 'Fire' into fantasy series
HBO has a fantasy of ice and fire

Variety says:

"HBO has acquired the rights to turn George R.R. Martin's bestsellingfantasy series "A Song of Fire and Ice" into a dramatic series to be written and exec produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

"Fire" is the first TV project for Benioff ("Troy") and Weiss ("Halo") and will shoot in Europe or New Zealand. Benioff and Weiss will write every episode of each season together save one, which the author (a former TV writer) will script.

The series will begin with the 1996 firstbook, "A Game of Thrones," and the intention is for each novel (they average 1,000 pages each) to fuel a season's worth of episodes. Martin has nearly finished the fifth installment, but won't complete the seven-book cycle until 2011."

OMG, how terrifying! I hope that they do a good job, I would pay in blood to see that done well!

Oh! Is that the big news he said he'd announce soon?

OMG that's awesome! Now they better not disappoint us, having read the books we know of a lot of different ways to make people suffer.

Part of me wishes someone would do Wild Cards. But part of me is sure no one could do it justice. I've never read A Song of Fire and Ice; I'll see if they have it at my library.

What's that word again... uhm...

Oh yeah!
