First published in 1996, A Game of Thrones is the first book in G.R.R. Martin's award-winning and bestselling epic fantasy series Song of Ice and Fire. Since then, the original planned trilogy has expanded into what will eventually be a seven part saga. So far five volumes have been published, and Martin is currently working on the sixth. But to keep fans happy the new history of the Targaryens, Fire and Blood was released in November 2018 and added more depth to the already established story.
As Ben from our IT team says:
"Even if you’re not a fan of fantasy, it's hard not to be swept up in this brutal and intricately plotted tale. Martin brings a real atmosphere of historical realism to his imagined world but it was the vividly realised characters and the depiction of the labyrinthine political structures they move within that kept me reading to the end (and on to the next instalment). Brilliantly paced and relentlessly thrilling, this book really does deserve its classic status."
The books have become even more popular since being adapted for televison, gaining a new and ever growing fan base. The finale series in 2019 trod it's own path in terms of the storyline, as Martin is still to finish writing his books, but the interest in the worlds he has created continue to burn and be passed on.....until the mania is re-ignited when Martin publishes his conclusion!
Below is a selection of books available, from the original novels, to guides to the Seven Kingdoms, and our range of gifts and stationery.
