The  Author

George R.R. Martin
author's official websiteIMDb listing {since 1984]entry at Wikipedia
Amazon's George R.R. Martin Page
entry at the Internet Speculative Fiction Database
George R.R. Martin was listed as one of the "TIME Magazine 100 Most Influential People In The World" in 2011.

George Raymond Martin was born on 20 September 1948 in Bayonne, New Jersey, USA; he added the confirmation name Richard at age 13; he participated in comic books fandon during the 1960s; after graduating college in 1971, he registered as a conscientuious objector during the VietNam War draft and served two years as a VISTA volunteer in Chicago. He taught at Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa until moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1979.

George Martin wrote short stories beginning in the 1970s; many were standard scifi and were nominated for or won Hugos and other awards. His excellent vampire novel "Fevre Dream" was published in 1983, followed with the horror novel "The Armageddon Rag" [1984]. He then wrote and produced television shows in Hollywood. After a string unfulfilling and-or unproduced TV & movie projects, he returned to writing novels in 1991. His epic fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire" was inspired by the Wars of The Roses (1455‑87) and by
Sir Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe" [1820] and intended to comprise seven volumes.

"A Game of Thrones" was published in 1996. "A Feast For Crows" [11/2005], the fourth novel in the series, became a New York Times #1 Bestseller and also a Wall Street Journal #1 Bestseller, plus other awards. The fifth book, "A Dance With Dragons", was published in July 2011, and quickly became an international bestseller, including achieving a #1 spot on the New York Times and many other lists, remaining on the New York Times list for 88 weeks. The remaining two novels are named "The Winds of Winter" and "A Dream of Spring". Book 6 is still unfinished (Summer 2016) and Martin has announced that he has halted work on all other projects; various parties hope that the book sees publication by year-end.
