George RR Martin Gets HBO Treatment
According to Tor, HBO has ordered up a pilot of George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series. If picked up, the series would focus on an individual book each season. Who knows whether this is the kick in the ass that Martin needs to actually finish the f-ing series. (Yes, I am totally bitter because there are a ton of hanging threads out there and the last book that Martin released which was way past due was only half of the story and apparently, from all reports, its about the characters no one cares about). I do know that Charlaine Harris' books have become extraordinarily popular with the launch of the HBO series True Blood based on Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series.
Maybe Tor can use the money that an HBO production will bring in terms of increased sales of Martin's epic books to digitize more books. Via Galley Cat .
