George R.R. Martin has written six novels and many screenplays for television and feature films. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
`Mr. Martin is a literary dervish, bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers. And Tyrion is his grandest creation' New York Times
'I love Tyrion Lannister. He's a baller and a drinker but he's also dry, cynical, jaded. An atheist and an aesthete. I'm telling you about him because I think you will love him too, and I want to not be the only person in my social circle who has a poster of him on the wall in their kitchen' Caitlin Moran
Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire:
`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'
