The wizardly author of the wildly popular Song of Fire & Ice fantasy series, the brutal, epic, romantic and supernatural story of wars waged between varying clans and families in a land known as Westeros, is dogged by his hyper-eager fans even more than he already was – thanks to HBO’s recent dynamic productions of A Game of Thrones’ -through which the first two novels in the series have been depicted through 10-episode seasons.
Season 3 is coming soon. This will comprise half-of or at least most of “Book 3: A Storm of Swords”
