A GAME OF THRONES
"Do the dead frighten you?"
Martin first attracted readers through highly detailed worldbuilding so intricate that he himself has compared it to the carvings of a Gothic cathedral. However, it is his deeply beloved, yet flawed, characters that have brought the book such a fervent fanbase. Unusual for most fantasy in the Tolkien tradition, Martin's series directly confronts the brutality and violence of his medieval world, including the consistently shocking demise of major characters. The HBO series based on Martin's books has broken multiple records, including most Emmys for a scripted series, the largest ever TV simulcast, most viewers in both cable and broadcast (broken multiple times, with Season 7's finale currently holding the record at 12.1 million), and most views for a trailer (over 60 million for Season 7). Jacket illustration by Jim Burns. A fine signed copy of a masterpiece in modern fantasy.
