George R.R. Martin

Described as ‘the American Tolkien’, George Raymond Martin was born on 20 September, 1948 and writes fantasy novels under the name George R.R. Martin. The author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series (originally intended as trilogy!) that inspired HBO’s TV phenomenon Game of Thrones, George’s books are page-turners full of mystic elements where no character is safe. His background includes stints working as a story editor on TV shows The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast and Max Headroom.

George’s first published writing was actually in the form of a letter to Marvel Comics praising an issue of The Fantastic Four in 1961. He is such a huge fan of comics that he bought the first ever Comic-Con ticket. He still writes his books on a 30-year-old PC using Wordstar 4.0 and contributes to Not a Blog. Now living in New Mexico, George R.R. Martin is a big fan of New York Mets and New York Jets and is actively involved in a number of wolf charities.

    The return of the famous shared-world superhero books created and edited by George R. R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire The American Triad Series #1: Mississippi Roll #2: Low Chicago #3: Texas Hold 'Em WILD CARDS MEET WILD WEST Following World War II, the Earth's population was devastated by a terrifying alien virus. Those who survived were changed forever. Some, known as Jokers, were cursed with bizarre mental and physical abnormalities; others, granted superhuman abilities, are the lucky few known as Aces. San Antonio, home of the Alamo, is also host to the USA's top high school jazz competition, and the musicians at Xavier Desmond High are excited to outplay their rivals. But they are also Jokers: kids with superabilties and looks that make them stand out. On top of that, well, they are teenagers - prone to mischief, mishaps, and romantic misunderstandings. Michelle Pond, aka The Amazing Bubbles, thinks that her superhero know-how has prepared her to chaperone the event. But little does she know the true meaning of the saying, "Don't mess with Texas." Edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R.R. Martin, Texas Hold 'em features the writing talents of David Anthony Durham, Max Gladstone, Victor Milan, Diana Rowland, Walton Simons, Caroline Spector, and William F. Wu.
