This is an auction for BEYOND THE WALL: EXPLORING GEORGE R R MARTIN'S A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE, FROM A GAME OF THRONES TO A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.

Edited by James Lowder.

Foreword by R D Salvatore.

"There were a number of books about A Game of Thrones (the HBO series) and A Song of Ice and Fire (the books) published last year. The one that impressed me most was James Lowder's Beyond the Wall."
—George R.R. Martin

Amazon.com review:

"Robert A. Salvatore's "Foreword" to Beyond the Wall: Exploring George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, From A Game of Thrones to A Dance with Dragons sets a near-perfect tone for this entire book of criticism on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. He says all of those things we'd like to say to those who demean the fantasy genre in specific (and fiction, in general) and he says it all with his particular flair. I must take slight issue with his description of Martin's work as the "tapestry of Westeros, filled with resonating characters who see the world through a different and sometimes magical prism." (p. xi) Rather, I would suggest that Martin's work is a mural of Westeros, carved brutally out of stone and violently defaced as the story progresses by the artist's own and deliberate hand in accordance with the tragic ebb and flow of various factions. If you believe in the value of thoughtful consideration of so-called genre works which do not get sufficient respect, this volume is a must-read. My enjoyment of Martin's work was significantly enhanced by reading these essays."
