George R. R. Martin is an American science-fiction/fantasy author from New Jersey. He is most well known for his series, A Song of Ice and Fire. A lifelong comic book fan, Martin became interested in writing at a young age. In the 1980s, he began writing for several science-fiction television series. After writing for television, Martin was struggling with a new book in the 1990s. In his story, he developed a scene where a group of children find a dead direwolf and several direwolf pups. This scene would go on to plant the seeds for A Song of Ice and Fire. A Game of Thrones is the first installment in his series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Martin is finishing the seventh and final installment in the series, which was originally intended to be a trilogy. The series has been translated into 27 languages and was recently made into an award-winning television series on HBO.

A top aide of the new king has died under mysterious circumstances, the heirs of the deposed despot seek to raise an army to reclaim the throne, and winter is coming, a cold and harsh winter that threatens to last for years. As a mysterious and horrifying force gathers in the wilderness, edging ever nearer to the unsuspecting people of the Seven Kingdoms, Lord Eddard Stark, a close friend of the king, investigates the death of his aide and uncovers a conspiracy that could tear the kingdoms apart. As families and steel clash amid a web of deception, Stark learns that when playing the game of thrones, there is one rule: you win, or you die.
