(From The Independent) This is going to infuriate Game of Thrones readers….

Author George RR Martin is busy working on a new sci-fi series for HBO.

The show, tentatively titled Captain Cosmos, will reportedly focus on a young science fiction TV writer in 1949. The as-yet-unnamed character will pen novels that no one “would dare to write” at the time.

The late 1940s is right at the start of the TV era and after the end of the first golden age of science fiction, when the genre was languishing in the doldrums having fallen out of public favour with the narrowing of the pulp sci-fi market.

Captain Cosmos is in the early stages of development and a pilot episode is being written by Michael Cassutt, the man behind SyFy’s Z Nation.

Martin is already an established TV writer with credits for The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, along with penning the scripts for several episodes of Game of Thrones.
