an evening in NYC with George R. R. Martin

Who hasn't heard of Game of Thrones by now? Who is not hooked on the HBO TV series? Do you live under a rock? 

The stage is set at 92Y.

Not us! We are die hard fans of both the books and the series. Yes, there's more than one! 

The now famous series, A Song of Ice and Fire, includes A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons

So hang on to your pantalones gang. The adventure has just begun.

Long lines around the block.

On 26 October 2014, 8:00 p.m. at the Kaufmann Concert Hall (92Y) in New York City, this lavishly illustrated coffee table book was launched - The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones, written by George R.R. Martin, Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.

Over bright but still recognizable.

The event overview proclaims: "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 and Fire." 

Martin's live journal announced: "It boasts 300 pages of back story and original artwork by the some of the world's top fantasy illustrators.  This one-of-a-kind coffee table book contains maps, folk lore, detailed family histories, and endless insider information dealing with the world of Westeros. Providing vividly constructed accounts of epic battles tackled by famous heroes, and their journies before becoming important figures in the Song of Ice and Fire series."

Collaborating with the author in this grand endeavor are Elio M. GarcĂ­a, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site The team will henceforth be known as possibly the only other humans who knew this world almost as well as its visionary. 

We guarantee you they won't remain so now that we can all get this book.
