Game Of Thrones On HBO

I've been reading A Song Of Fire And Ice by George R.R. Martin ("The American Tolkein", as he is nicknamed) and have just started watching the HBO series, "A Game Of Thrones" based on the books. It is really quite good. And I'm not the only one who things so: The general consensus of reviewers seems to be "the excellence you come to expect from HBO".

If you've never heard of "Game of Thrones", it is about the political/ royal/ power machinations of several great families (and several dozen minor ones) in a semi-fantasy/medieval world.

The only problem I foresee is that author Martin has not yet started writing the 6th and 7th books of the series, and it took him 11 years to write the 2 books — the 4th and the 5th books — before that.
