George R.R. Martin

Born in Bayonne, New Jersey, legendary fantasy fiction author George R.R. Martin (GRRM) began writing early, selling monster stories to his school friends for pocket money as a child. He wrote part-time for fantasy journals throughout the 1970’s, whilst working as a teacher before becoming a full-time writer in 1979, penning novels including the vampyric historical horror novel Fevre Dream, a host of award-winning short fiction and writing for television. In 1991 he began working on the fantasy epic series - inspired by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings – which would become A Song of Ice and Fire. The first novel, A Game of Thrones, was published in 1996 and by the time of the fourth novel’s publication in 2005, the series had become New York Times bestsellers. The series was adapted into a major television series by HBO, making A Game of Thrones a household name. To date the series encompasses five novels as well as associated short fiction and accompanying volumes.

From the masterly imagination behind A Game of Thrones - one of the greatest fantasy epics of all time and an unmissable HBO hit series - comes a definitive history of Westeros’s past as told by Archmaester Gyldayn. Unravelling events that led to A Song of Ice and Fire, Fire and Blood is the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens in Westeros. Revealing long-buried secrets and untold lasting enmity, it sets the scene for the next heart-stopping title in the series, The Winds of Winter.

300 years before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire, long before the schism that set the houses of Westeros at each other’s throats, one house ruled supreme and indomitable. House Targaryen, the house of the last remaining dragonlords.
