Last Saturday night, George R.R. Martin announced on his personal blog that the HBO-owned Cinemax has optioned the rights to his 1989 book Skin Trade. A horror story which can be so successful as Game of Throne TV show. What do you think? Listen to him!

“I am very excited to announce the Cinemax (HBO’s sister company) has optioned the television rights to ‘The Skin Trade,’ the offbeat ‘werewolf noir’ novella I penned back in the late 80s. The deal is closed, and Cinemax has ordered the pilot script.”

Skin Trade focus on Randi Wade, a female private investigator, and her friend Willie Flambeaux, who happens to be a werewolf.

The story was originally part of an anthology that included tales from horror masters Stephen King and Dan Simmons.

Martin won’t be writing the show if the pilot gets picked up to series but Kalinda Vasquez, who is well known for her work on the Fox drama Prison Break and The CW espionage series Nikita.

Martin said that he is really busy with Game of Thrones. “I have this book to finish,” he wrote. “You know the one.”

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you! Fall can be exciting.
