I hear this is going to be HBO's next big series. Pretty exciting. For those who've never heard of A Song of Ice and Fire, it's a multi-book medieval fantasy series by George RR Martin. Kind of like Lord of the Rings, but grittier. And with characters that are actually interesting. And without the gayness. Im pretty snobby about potboilers and paperback, and generally the whole fantasty bit, but after hearing this was being turn into TV and upon the recommendation of a friend, I started reading these book. They're a lot of fun and addicting. Starting the 3rd one currently. Any basement dwellers on GT into these books?
