Just in case the latest Harry Potter hasn't satisfied your thirst for fantasy—or if you like your fantasy with significantly more viscera, incest, and self-loathing—Entertainment Weekly has a slideshow of photos from HBO's upcoming Game of Thrones series, based on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" books by George R.R. Martin. If HBO follows the spirit of Martin's books as closely as they appear to be doing, Thrones will be kinda like Deadwood in castles. In other words: Awesome.

Ah, the ol midget slipping on a banana peel gag! COMEDY GOLD.

In related news, Game of Thrones will be in its 9,054th season before Martin will bother finishing the next book in the series.
