Is ‘Chronicles of Amber’ the Next ‘Game of Thrones’?
Just as Game of Thrones prepares its final two seasons, a new contender comes to take its place!
Like Thrones, the new fantasy epic in development is based off a hit book series, Roger Zelazny’s The Chronicles of Amber.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story focuses on a character named Corwin, who “awakens on Earth with no memory but soon finds he is a prince of a royal family who has the ability to travel through different dimensions of reality (called ‘shadows’) and rules over the one true world/dimension known as Amber).
George R. R. Martin, author of Game of Thrones source material A Song of Ice and Fire, was good friends with Roger Zelazny, calling him a “storyteller without peer” whose worlds were “as colorful and exotic and memorable as any our genre has ever seen.”
This isn’t Robert’s only recent association with Game of Thrones, however. He famously criticized George telling the Thrones showrunners how he planned on finishing his novels.
“I would never do that. That's the one thing I’m disappointed in George R. R. Martin for doing,” Robert told Rolling Stone. “He should have just been like, F—k you. You make it up now, I'll get to mine when I'm ready.”
He quickly walked back those comments, though, tweeting, “George R. R. Martin is a far better writer than I'll ever be. And I'm loving the new season of Game Of Thrones. It's my favorite show on TV!”
Well, imitation is the highest form of flattery!
