Let’s try and stay spoiler-free for those that will grab it on DVD later on.
HBO rolled out the much hyped and highly anticipated new series last week. How does it compare to the books? How does it stand on its own?
Yes, we’ve been teased and disappointed a lot over the last few years. But with “Game of Thrones” coming to HBO this month, apparently the proverbial fire has been lit under George Martin’s hind quarters.
Bantam Books has set July 12, 2011 as the release date for the sixth book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. Martin maintains that the delay is due to him needing to fully map out the last two books in the series. Note, that “Dragons” is not yet finished, but will be in time for publication.
It’s been a long wait for fans, hopefully it pays off.
From George Martin’s “Not a Blog“
HBO has given the greenlight for 10 episodes based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. The pilot is in post-production now and no word on how far into the books (or just book) the season will go.
Yours truly has reviewed most of the series, starting with “A Game of Thrones.”
The official press release follows.
Well, HBO may have finally found something to make me pay even more for cable, they’re producing a TV series based on the Hugo Award-winning series from George R. R. Martin. I’ve reviewed the first three books on B42, guess I should get my tail in gear and review Book 4, A Feast for Crows.
Here is the latest of the published books in the series. The next one won’t be out until April of 2003.
I’ve finished book two of George R. R. Martin’s enchanting Song of Ice and Fire series.
At least I got some reading done on vacation :)
