In light of GAME OF THRONES, I thought a new series on HBO would be a good theme for my GEEK SOUL BROTHER QUESTION OF THE WEEK - #GSBQOTW. So What Book(s) would you love to see HBO produce into a series? I asked my Twitter Family (months ago) what they thought. They tweeted back some great suggestions. My book reading queue just exploded.
The first answer I got was from my buddy - Papa Kenn Media (@PapaKennMedia) - Locke & Key - a graphic novel series by Joe Hill (aka Stephen King's son). It seemed the most requested were novels by Octavia Butler, African-American Science Fiction Author. And Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER was a popular choice. I'm sure if you take a look at this list you will find something that you might not have read. Thank you so much to all my followers.
