About the Author:

In a collaboration that's been years in the making, George R.R. Martin has teamed with Elio M. Garcia, Jr. and Linda Antonsson - the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org - perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator. George R.R. Martin is the author of fifteen novels and novellas, including five volumes of A Song of Ice and Fire, several collections of short stories, as well as numerous screenplays for television drama and feature films. Dubbed 'the American Tolkien', George R.R. Martin has won numerous awards including the World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award. He is an Executive Producer of HBO's Emmy Award-winning GAME OF THRONES, which is based on his A Song of Ice and Fire series. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Review:

`Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, George R.R. Martin is by far the best' Time Magazine `Colossal, staggering... Martin captures all the intoxicating complexity of the Wars of the Roses or Imperial Rome in his imaginary world ... one of the greats of fantasy literature' SFX `The sheer-mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads ... Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias' Guardian
