If you’re into the small screen adaptations of fantasy classics, you will be happy to hear that Neil Gaiman and Akiva Goldsman will turn Mervyn Peake’s five book saga GORMENGHAST into television series with Free Mantle Media. As ‘Deadline’ reports a great battle was lead for the rights over the unusual fairy tale which follows the inhabitants of Castle GORMENGHAST     a sprawling, decaying, gothic structure with a raft of characters including Titus, the heir to the throne of the House of Groan, scheming kitchen boy Steerpike and twin sisters Cora and Clarice.
