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.

I'm eagerly awaiting this series.
Love the books.
I am biased because I'm such a fan of the novels.
The production on the show is first rate.
Excellent sets, locations and special effects.
From memory, they appear to be using some of the same people that were involved with The Sopranos - cinematographer Alik Sakharov and Director Tim Van Patten jump out.
And in no way to dismiss the quality of the actual episode material, but the opening credits were my favourite part!
You think that's bad? It's been almost SIX years between the release of the last book - A Feast for Crows and today when A Dance with Dragons finally appeared.

I'm going to have to re-read AFfC before I can crack open the new book!
I was in the same boat - started reading Dance with Dragons only to find out I forgot a lot of the secondary characters
I find that Wikipedia provides a good reminder as to each book's plot and character storylines, without having to invest the time in re-reading the books.
