George R. R. Martin is a legend in the fantasy world. As the author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which sparked the HBO adaptation, “Game of Thrones,” George is responsible for the creation of Westeros and all the novel creatures and people that inhabit it.
Like all great authors, George is an avid reader. As a child, he loved to spend his spare time reading comic books. As he got older, he was introduced to science fiction and fell in love with the genre. Here, he discusses the first science fiction book he ever read, a classic sci-fi book, and a sci-fi retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo.
