This limited signed hardcover edition of Fevre Dream comes signed by George R.R. Martin, author of the New York Times best-selling novel series A Song of Ice and Fire. Behold, a moonlit tale of feuding vampire clans, death, and debauchery in the bayou!  Set in 1857 along the muddy Mississippi, Fevre Dream introduces Abner Marsh, a remarkably ugly man who longs to captain the fastest steamboat on the river.  When a pale, mysterious gentleman named Joshua – who keeps strange hours and stranger friends – approaches him with an offer of partnership, Abner’s dreams appear to come true... though he may have unleashed a nightmare on the unsuspecting shores!  Adapted by Hugo-nominated author Daniel Abraham and artist Rafa Lopez, this graphic novel stays faithful to Martin’s original dark vision, immersing the reader in the tortures and seductive pleasures of vampire society.  Features a gorgeous painted cover by artist Felipe Massafera unique to the George R.R. Martin signed edition.

From the Inside Flap:

When struggling riverboat captain Abner Marsh receives an offer of partnership from a wealthy aristocrat, he suspects something's amiss. But when he meets the hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York, he is certain. For York doesn't care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh's dilapidated fleet. Nor does he care that he won't earn back his investment in a decade. York has his own reasons for wanting to traverse the powerful Mississippi. And they are to be none of Marsh's concern--no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious his actions may prove.
Marsh meant to turn down York's offer. It was too full of secrets that spelled danger. But the promise of both gold and a grand new boat that could make history crushed his resolve--coupled with the terrible force of York's mesmerizing gaze. Not until the maiden voyage of his new sidewheeler Fevre Dream would Marsh realize he had joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare...and mankind's most impossible dream.
Here is the spellbinding tale of a vampire's quest to unite his race with humanity, of a garrulous riverman's dream of immortality, and of the undying legends of the steamboat era and a majestic, ancient river.
