Book Description

HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R R Martin’s internationally bestselling series A Song Of Ice And Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age.

George R.R. Martin's A Song Of Ice And Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.

Three great story lines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.

Seasons one and two of the HBO adaption of A Game of Thrones aired world-wide to critical acclaim.

The box set includes :

A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords - 1 : Steel and Snow
A Storm of Swords - 2 : Blood and Gold
A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons - 1 : Dreams and Dust
A Dance with Dragons - 2 : After the Feast

        different type of story well written by author. Written in a fashion where readers imagination is to the for and absorbing. Characters in lead roles are depicted as very young but act and respond as older in age.

              Perfect for fans of the book and tv series, this convenient box set works out cheaper than buying the books separately, and allows you to keep reading continuously since you have all the books you need.

              It also comes with a map of Westeros which is a cool little bonus!

                    A brilliant read. The most original story i have read in a long time. Before you watch the show, read the books that inspired the TV series! However I wouldn't recommend to young readers, does contain adult themes.

                    'Of those who work in the grand epic fantasy tradition, 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' 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

                    George R. R. Martin

                    George R.R. Martin was born September 20, 1948 in Bayonne, New Jersey. His father was Raymond Collins Martin, a longshoreman, and his mother was Margaret Brady Martin. He has two sisters, Darleen Martin Lapinski and Janet Martin Patten.

                    Martin attended Mary Jane Donohoe School and Marist High School. He began writing very young, selling monster stories to other neighborhood children for pennies, dramatic readings included. Later he became a comic book fan and collector in high school, and began to write fiction for comic fanzines (amateur fan magazines). Martin's first professional sale was made in 1970 at age 21: "The Hero," sold to Galaxy, published in February, 1971 issue. Other sales followed.

                    In 1970 Martin received a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, graduating summa cum laude. He went on to complete a M.S. in Journalism in 1971, also from Northwestern.

                    As a conscientious objector, Martin did alternative service 1972-1974 with VISTA, attached to Cook County Legal Assistance Foundation. He also directed chess tournaments for the Continental Chess Association from 1973-1976, and was a Journalism instructor at Clarke College, Dubuque, Iowa, from 1976-1978. He wrote part-time throughout the 1970s while working as a VISTA Volunteer, chess director, and teacher.

                    In 1975 he married Gale Burnick. They divorced in 1979, with no children. Martin became a full-time writer in 1979. He was writer-in-residence at Clarke College from 1978-79.

                    Moving on to Hollywood, Martin signed on as a story editor for Twilight Zone at CBS Television in 1986. In 1987 Martin became an Executive Story Consultant for Beauty and the Beast at CBS. In 1988 he became a Producer for Beauty and the Beast, then in 1989 moved up to Co-Supervising Producer. He was Executive Producer for Doorways, a pilot which he wrote for Columbia Pictures Television, which was filmed during 1992-93.
