London, Voyager, 1996. Paperback Preview Edition containing the first couple of chapters. A fine copy. An important GRRM collectable being the first appearance in the UK of his Song of Fire and Ice series. Quite possibly the most significant work of fantasy since Tolkien, indeed the series is oft seen by fans and the press as a US equivalent. Following the HBO series, demand has taken a dramatic rise, but for a good decade now the book, especially this UK edition but also other US editions, has been a highlight of modern fantasy. A rich history and realism has been applied to the various interweaving stories and there's little doubt that this will long remain on the various lists of top speculative fiction.
