George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age, and is now available in a collectible box set, including an exclusive fold-out map of Westeros. Now a major Sky Atlantic TV series from HBO, featuring a stellar cast. George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Labelled by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J.R.R. Tolkien's, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years. Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.

Well im not sure with this one, as Books 3/5 (A Clash of Kings, A Dance With Dragons) were both split into two books, but im not sure whether this set has the split volumes or just the one big book, so i just put in 5 books!

ok i voted hot anyway just for the pic of dany

'Hottest' character on TV at moment...fact!
Books are awesome reading...if you haven't got around to it already get them!
TV series is actually managing to do pretty good job of the books but still lots of detail missing that you just can't replicate from paper to TV.
Hot Hot Hot from me!

Slight correction, book 3 was A Storm of Swords and yes it was split 1:Steel and Snow 2:Blood and Gold. (The hardcovers for both 3 and 5 are one book) In fairness they've listed them in the wrong order on Amazon

Apologies, was too early in the morning for me

Don't forget to read the Dunk and Egg books too. Excellent addition and explain a great deal.

I’m sure you will find this cheaper sometime in the next six months, which you are going to be waiting for this to be delivered. I’d rather pay a few quid more to get it in a few days rather than months.

Ok, so does this cover the same material as the 7 book set? It's always confused me so it would be great to clarify before I take the plunge.

I see this a lot, but no idea where to actually get them. Got a link or anything?

According to wikipedia the 6th book is currently being written

My main concern is how long it will take him to Write the last two books, there was a long gap between books 4 & 5.
Have read them all now, just have to wait.

Given how long it took to write the last one and the one before that I wouldn't hold my breath. I have been reading the books since 1997 I think. It took him about 4 years to publish each of the last two books.

Having said that there is an excerpt from the next book on his website georgerrmartin.com/exc…er/

Why is this a pre-order? All these books are out and have been available as a box set for ages.

I think it's a re-release because A Dance with Dragons is being re-released to include a chapter from The Winds of Winter or something!

George is taking so long to write the books they made a song about it.

Bought the 7 book boxset which also gives a map of Westeros.
I don't understand why they are releasing them again and setting it as a pre-order.
You can find deals on this 7 book boxset currently from The Works website.

Unless they plan to release book 6 as well in this collection, but doesn't seem likely as Martin likes it slow.
Or maybe they are releasing it as 5 books all in hardback.

You may have 7 books, but you dont. $ of the books are 2 parts of 1 book, if you get what I mean
