Deadline is reporting that author George Martin is executive producing a television adaptation of Roger Zelazny’s Roadmarks novel for HBO. Kalinda Vazquez, whose previous credits include executive producing Fear the Walking Dead as well as writing credits on Star Trek Discovery, will bring the adaptation to the network.
Published in 1979 the novel is about a highway that can be used to travel through time. It links all timelines and places together for the people who are lucky enough to discover it.

I’ve never heard of the novel. But considering I’m a sucker for time travel (have been ever since I watched Back to the Future) the premise sounds like something I would be interested in. So there’s a very good chance I will be checking this series out when the time comes.
This news most likely comes as bittersweet at best for those readers of Martin’s most famous work. A Song Of Ice and Fire. Who have hoping Martin would keep his focus on finishing The Winds of Winter. The long-awaited sixth novel in his series. Fans have waited the better part of a decade now for the book and for the most part, are unsure of how much longer the wait might be. And this new project for HBO appears it will be another item to keep Martin from finishing the next installment into his beloved novel series.
