You may know Martin for his epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. But did you know who he was before he wrote that series? What were his inspirations? What did he think about? The answer is Dreamsongs I, which reads like an early Martin autobiography, told through story. From official release/information:
Book Description: Dubbed "the American Tolkien" by Time magazine, #1 New York Times bestselling author George R.R. Martin is a giant in the field of fantasy literature and one of the most exciting storytellers of our time. Now he delivers a rare treat for readers: a compendium of his shorter works, collected into two stunning volumes, that offer fascinating insight into his journey from young writer to award-winning master. Gathered here, in Volume I, are the very best of George R.R. Martin's early works, including never-before-published fan pieces, his Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker Award-winning stories—plus the original novella "The Ice Dragon", from which Martin's New York Times bestselling children's book of the same title originated. A dazzling array that features extensive author commentary, Dreamsongs, Volume I, is the perfect collection for both Martin devotees and a new generation of fans.
