A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin: Utter the phrase A Game of Thrones. Whether referring to George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of epic fantasy novels, the first title in that series, or the blockbuster HBO television series of the same name, there are few among us who would not immediately grasp the reference to this fantasy world of Lannisters and Starks, kings and would-be kings, queens and dragons, and family loyalty and betrayal taken to extremes, all set against a backdrop of seasons that span whole decades. The influence of that world and its inhabitants on popular culture is far-reaching and undeniable.

HBO is freaking out now that A GAME OF THRONES has concluded. They're hoping THE DEUCE will hold some of the same audience. The are also rumors HBO is interested in "prequels" to A GAME OF THRONES.
