For those of us who are constantly checking George R.R. Martin's website for news of the next book in the "Song of Ice and Fire" series: HBO acquires rights to the series.

I had no idea you were a fellow fan!

I haven't been this tortured since I was waiting for Zelazny to finish his Amber series...

I hope HBO does a Jacksoneque job of it.

Yeah, I think I've only mentioned it once, and that was in passing. I wish I could find the Least I Could Do strip that dealt with the death of a major character, as it perfectly summed up my feelings on the matter.

Waiting patiently for A Dance With Dragons[Wiki], unwilling to say too much because if the series doesn't ever get finished I don't want to bring that much more frustration into the world...

But, yeah, this is one that could be sweeping and big and... well... I'm not sure I can take all that much gore and nastiness in the mini-series (or series) form, but I'll be watching for it.

How does this series compare to his Game of Thrones series? (Oh, wait, it is that series.) I tried twice to get into these (once with the first book and then again with the second several years later), but was just too turned off by the heavy focus on politics and intrigue. Aside from that I felt he was a good writer, however.
