HBO does fantasy? I can't wait to see how that goes.


I found the last GRRM novel to be much weaker than the previous ones, which I adored. In particular I felt let down on the characters I really like, either because they were kind of ignored (Arya) or their story lines were just bizarre (Brienne). Hopefully the next one will be better.


GRRM books are split into two parts because he felt he couldn't devote enough time to each character's development in one book, hence his latest books didn't touch all the characters. I will be interested to see how well received a fantasy novel is when converted to a TV series hopefully there may be more to come. Hey........ The Lord of the Rings movies where very popular and that story was c##p in comparison to most of what is out there.


I loved these books(well I disliked the last book but that was more because I felt the characters were short changed) I can't wait to see how they go about doing this, or if it happens at all. I really hope this ushers in an age of great fantasy making it to a wider audience and since it seems movies are dropping the ball since LOTR when it comes to fantasy (ie Eragon) maybe another medium will help.
