Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire "One of the best series in the history of fantasy."--Los Angeles Times "Long live George Martin . . . a literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers."--The New York Times "The only fantasy series I'd put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings . . . It's a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don't read fantasy."--Chicago Tribune "Martin amply fulfills the first volume's promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written."--The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings "Martin has produced--is producing, since the series isn't over--the great fantasy epic of our era. It's an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in."--Lev Grossman, Time "Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel."--Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows "Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined."--The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons "I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers."--Robert Jordan
