Check out this new article from the Daily Illuminator that Steve Jackson Games posted:

March 25, 2007: A Song Of Ice And Fire (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=March&y=2007&d=25)

The very good news: not only has George R. R. Martin recovered the RPG rights (http://grrm.livejournal.com/13374.html) to his epic fantasy series, following the Guardians of Order debacle, but in the settlement he also acquired the remaining stocks of the super-deluxe hardcover edition. These can now be purchased through his own site (http://www.georgerrmartin.com/). I have seen this book and it's beautiful . . . it's a shame that it was associated with such disappointments to the people who worked on it.

The not-so-good news, from my own perspective, is that SJ Games will not be bidding on these rights. I am a dedicated reader of everything GRRM creates, most especially "Song of Ice and Fire," and I know that GRRM is a GURPS player. So I've thought seriously about it! But the inescapable fact is that this is just not the year to take on a new licensing project. As I said in my Report to the Stakeholders (http://www.sjgames.com/general/stakeholders/) in January, this is the year to sort out our production pipeline and do right by Munchkin.

Ah, well. I wish the best of good fortune to whoever does get the license . . . and they had better do it RIGHT, or I shall GLARE at them.
