George R. R. Martin's Top 25 Reads


George R. R. Martin: "I get emails all the time from fans asking me to recommend books for them to read 'while I am waiting for your next one.'

I can't possibly reply to all my emails, of course. But I do reply to some, when the mood strikes me. And I am always glad to recommend good books. There is so many of them out there that do not get half the attention that they deserve."
