From today's Wall Street Journal (I don't know if the link will work if you are not a subscriber):
Next year HBO will launch "Game of Thrones," a series based on George R.
R. Martin's novels about power struggles in a fictional land inspired
by medieval Europe.
From the HBO website:
Yee haw! That series is one of my favorite bunch of books EVAH! We don't have cable or satellite, let alone HBO, so I won't be able to watch the series until it comes out in DVD and I can get it from the library ::le sigh::
