game of thrones

George R.R. Martin’s series A Song of Ice and Firehas captured the world of fantasy fiction’s attention, giving a genre that is used to manipulating a tired storyline over and over something fresh albeit dark. And as we await the fifth book of the series, the long anticipated A Dance with Dragons, we can also begin to look forward to the miniseries that is due from HBO. To wet that anticipation, they’ve just released one of the first screenshots from the upcoming pilot. Let’s hope it lives up to the books, and the quality that HBO has shown in some of its other projects in the past.
