  • October 29: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Winter is coming.

The Seven Kingdoms is moving into a decade long winter, when ice and snow will cloak much of the land. It is also winter for the current ruler who is struggling to maintain his throne amidst treachery and revolts. King Robert Baratheon asks his oldest and most trusted friend, Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell, to take on the roll of Hand of the King, pulling Ned and his family into the intrigue and moral ambiguity of life at court.

On the other side of the Seven Kingdoms, Viserys, a vicious and amoral princeling, schemes to win back his family’s power by selling his only sister into slavery as the bride of a warlord. Daenerys, however, is perhaps more than the young girl she appears…

Named USA Today’s 2011 Author of the Year, George R.R. Martin had flourishing careers in science fiction, horror, and scriptwriting, before turning his attention to epic fantasy with the Song of Fire and Ice series. Authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien, David Eddings, and Robert Jordan have had flourishing fantasy careers over the years, creating worlds with knights, dragons, magic, and battles against evil, but Martin’s version depends more on history and characterization. As he says, “Every character is the hero of his own tale.” And there are many characters and tales to tell.

Check for available copies of A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin at the Circulation Desk or through our catalog where it is available as a book or audiobook. It is also available from Digital Downloads in ePub, Kindle, and eAudiobook formats in our Digital Library.

Please join us for our discussion on the October 29!
