Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire
"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
