Amid cries for him to write like the wind, George R.R. Martin is releasing a new book this October, but it’s not quite the one that fans are dying to read. The World of Ice and Fire is an illustrated history of all things Westeros that spans from Dawn Age to the fall of the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen. The book was co-written by Martin with Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson, the webmasters of Westeros.org who also fact-checked to make sure everything was accurate.
Martin is also holding a special, one-time event to promote the book in New York City with the $125 ticket price including a signed copy of the new book.
