A Game Of Thrones Ge­orge RR Martin, 1996

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 20 Greatest Books -

When the first novel in the Song Of Ice And Fire se­quence hit book­stores, it was Ge­orge RR Martin’s first full- length novel for 13 years. This gap was a re­flec­tion of the way Martin’s ca­reer had fal­tered in the wake of the fail­ure of The Ar­maged­don Rag ( 1983). Riff­ing off the Wars of the Roses, Martin hooked read­ers via bril­liant char­ac­ters and com­plex sto­ry­lines, and re- en­er­gised epic fan­tasy too.

When will we get to the end of the saga? “And this one’s in Near Mint con­di­tion!”
