Winter Is Coming

HBO have posted a brief teaser for the television adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Game Of Thrones.  Not much to see except some brief flashes of action and a tracking shot through a wood but the still of Sean Bean as Eddard Stark looks about right:

I'm cautiously excited about this show, but I worry that a) George has yet to finish the sequence (although maybe HBO knows something no one else does), and b) Expensive HBO shows don't always get to finish properly (Deadwood, Rome).

However, I'm so thrilled to see adult, mature fantasy being given wider exposure.  The more the genre comes into the mainstream the more people will be inspired to write and read it.

Winter is coming.
