When plans for the HBO Game of Thrones series were announced, I had friends who became very excited and followed all production news religiously. I hadn’t read the books, had no plans to read the books, and really didn’t understand the fervor.
Now that the first season of Game of Thrones has ended, I understand. HBO has announced a 6 season series for one of my favorite authors and books, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, to air in 2013. Now I’ll be the one following production news and getting giddy over advanced previews (and hopefully another novel or two by Gaiman).
