    The never-before-seen history of Westeros and the lands beyond. With hundreds of pages of all-new material from George R.R. Martin.

    If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire.

    This lavishly illustrated volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones.
    In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, 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.

    Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including:
    • full-color artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces,
    • full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen,
    • in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros,
    • 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book.

    The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin’s dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice & Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords

    O avtorju

    -George R. R. Martin-

    George R.R. Martin se je rodil 20. septembra 1948 v Bayonne, New Jersey.V mladih letih je postal strasten bralec in zbiratelj stripov. Dvajseta številka stripa Fantastični štirje vsebuje njegovo pismo uredniku, ki ga je napisal v srednji šoli. Tej objavi in veselju do t.i. fanzinov pripisuje veliko zaslug, da je postal pisatelj.V zgodnjih sedemdesetih letih je pisal kratke zgodbe, in kljub neuspehu (eno zgodbo so različne revije zavrnile kar 42) ni obupal. Kasneje je dobil nekaj nagrad Hugo in Nebula. Prva zgodba, ki je bila nominirana za te dve nagradi, je bila With Morning Comes Mistfall, ki je izšla leta 1973. Nagrad ni dobil, je bil pa zadovoljen že s samo nominacijo.

    V osemdesetih letih je začel delati na televiziji. Sodeloval je pri serijah Območje somraka in Lepotica in zver. Prav tako je bil urednik, kjer je nadziral serijo Wild Cards in tudi sam napisal nekaj delov.

    Leta 1996 se je vrnil k pisanju romanov. Začel je pisati serijo Pesem ledu in ognja (v navdih sta mu bila roman Ivanhoe in državljanska vojna v Angliji, znana kot vojna med belo in rdečo rožo. Za celotno serijo je načrtovanih sedem knjig. V novembru 2005 je postala četrta knjiga A Feast for Crows, najbolj prodajana knjiga na lestvicah The New York Times in The Wall Street Journal. Septembra 2006 je bila knjiga nominirana za nagradi Quill in British Fantasy. Knjiga je prejela pohvale od pisateljev, založnikov, bralcev in kritikov. Martin trenutno piše peto knjigo v seriji, A Dance with Dragons.+

    Januarja 2007 je HBO Productions objavil, da je prejel pravice za izdelavo in predvajanje celotne serije Pesem ledu in ognja. Avtor sodeluje kot izvršni producent. V načrtu imajo, da bo vsaka knjiga imela svojo sezono (po preteklih serijah na HBO, lahko sklepamo, da bo vsaka sezona imela 12). Produkcija bo potekala na Novi Zelandiji in v Evropi. Martin je pristal, da bo napisal en scenarij na sezono. Novembra 2008 je Martin na svojem blogu objavil novico, da je HBO dal zeleno luč za snemanje pilota.

    Martin je bil tudi učitelj novinarstva (na to temo ima tudi magistrsko nalogo). V prostem času zbira srednjeveške miniature in še naprej ceni svojo zbirko stripov, ki med drugim vsebuje prvo izdajo Spider-mana in Fantastic Four. Čeprav je dokaj aktiven na internetu, pravi:" Pišem na drugem računalniku, kot pa na tistem , ki ga uporabljam za pošto in internet. Deloma zato, da se obvarujem virusov, črvov in drugih podobnih nevšečnosti (...) Pišem pa s pomočjo WordStar 4.0. na računalniku z DOSom."
