There are 5 published novels in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, with 2 more forthcoming. Given the scope of his world, the sheer numbers of his characters and the very high ratings for HBO’s adaptation, it comes as no surprise that Game of Thrones has been renewed for a 4th season. Call in your direwolves and any three-eyed crows who happen about, it’s time for some champagne!

Were you waiting on pins and needles for 3.31.13? You wouldn’t be alone if you were. The season 3 premier aired on that, the final Sunday of March, and over 4 million viewers tuned in for the fresh installment of the sword and fantasy political drama, titled “Valar Dohaeris”. Buzz on the net suggests that the hour-long inaugural episode for season 3 also broke the online piracy record. Its a good thing we naughty viewers don’t live in Westeros. »
