George R.R. Martin returns to a whole new world with 'Nightflyers' on Syfy

LOS ANGELES - Only a few days removed from this year's Emmys, George R.R. Martin was feeling a bit tired.

It had been another big night for the "Game of Thrones" writer, whose intricate "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels continued their run of prestige TV dominance. Adapted by David Weiss and David Benioff into a powerful HBO series, "Game of Thrones" has earned the network a gaudy 47 awards over a run that this year included best drama series.

Martin is still involved with "Game of Thrones," including plans for prequels for HBO and finishing the highly anticipated next installment of his book series ("Winds of Winter," which has no release date). But he's also moved on to his next big TV project born of his imagination, "Nightflyers."
