Getting Started

BOOKS


The most recent release in the A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE series, A Dance with Dragons was released in July of 2011.  It is currently only available in Hardcover, and Kindle formats.  The paperback release is scheduled for July, 2012. The exciting news about the paperback release is that George has stated that it will contain a new sample chapter from The Winds of Winter before it's release.If you are interested in reading even one of the books from A Song of Ice and Fire, it's probably a good idea to buy this set of 4.  The savings you get from buying all four makes it less than buying just two of the books separately. In addition, the artwork on the smaller paperback sizes is surprisingly good. Normally the hardcover books have the high quality artwork, and the paperbacks get an afterthought but that is not the case here.You’ve read the books. You’ve watched the hit series on HBO.
