I see George R. R. Martin's "OF Fire and Ice" is due out next month in 10 episodes called "Game Of Thrones". Evidently 1 book for 1 season. Trailers at the site.

Never read the books, my wife loves them, but in terms of length and depth make "Girl With the Dragon Tatoo" trilogy look like Readers Digest.

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to both the mini series and Book #5. :p
The books are the best thing I've ever read in my life... And the show is a very good adaptation - yet the amount of detail they omit because of time constraints is considerable. The books are a sumptuous feast, while the tv show is a snack, albeit a very tasty one.
It's just talk... These people are hooked just like I was when I realized that the books were not like any epic fantasy that had come before. This series has changed the entire genre - for the better.
