Item specifics

Special Attributes:



George R. R. Martin signed hardcovers of all five A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE novels (second of three items by George R. R. Martin offered for this auction)

These are Random House general trade editions of the books the hugely successful HBO series GAME OF THRONES is based on. Donated by Martin and his family, George has also offered to write a note on his personal stationary thanking the high bidder for supporting the Pearl Foundation. Each book can also be signed and personalized , and on request he will write something in the colophon page about it being donated to the Pearl Foundation. Condition: new.

Generously donated by George R. R. Martin and Parris McBride Martin.

Janis says: I first met George and Parris in 2001. I’d performed at the Philadelphia Folk Festival the night before, and was having a quick breakfast at the hotel before leaving to attend my first Worldcon. (Which, coincidentally, Anne and Gigi McCaffrey had insisted I attend, and Mike Resnick had then forced me into signing up.) I was terribly nervous about meeting Mike for the first time, not to mention the other authors I’d worshipped over the years. In the next booth, I heard someone mention “Worldcon”, so I politely asked whether the people there were attending? Parris and her friend Dave Axler invited me to sit with them, and I barraged them with questions about how the convention would work. At some point I asked Parris if she knew any of the writers, and were they nice... I had no idea she was George’s long-time spouse! Parris and George were the first people to suggest this auction, and the first to sign on with items. Always so nice when a great artist is also a great person.
