About the Author

George R. R. Martin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including the acclaimed series A Song of Ice and Fire-A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons-as well as Tuf Voyaging, Fevre Dream, The Armageddon Rag, Dying of the Light, Windhaven (with Lisa Tuttle), and Dreamsongs Volumes I and II. He is also the creator of The Lands of Ice and Fire, a collection of maps from A Song of Ice and Fire featuring original artwork from illustrator and cartographer Jonathan Roberts, and The World of Ice & Fire (with Elio M. Garcia, Jr., and Linda Antonsson). As a writer-producer, Martin has worked on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and pilots that were never made. He lives with the lovely Parris in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Reviews

Virtuoso mastery of atmosphere justifies this deluxe, illustrated 35th anniversary reprint of Martin's debut, which long predates his star turn with Game of Thrones and its sequels. Dirk t'Larien, responding to what he imagines to be a call for help from his former lover Guinevere, voyages to the distant planet Worlorn, which is drifting rapidly out of the galaxy. Life is evolving strangely on the chilly, darkening world, and the humans still living there are an eccentric lot. Dirk isn't certain whether Jaan, the scholar/warrior from bleak High Kavalaan, is Gwen's lover or captor, nor does he understand the harsh code that labels non-Kavalars "mockmen," shape-shifters who are fair game for hunting. Violent, repeated misunderstandings and reappraisals naturally follow. This is a young writer's book, full of romantic foreboding and foolishness. Nonetheless, Warlorn's grand, gloomy landscape is an evocative backdrop for characters obsessed with love, duty, and death, and their drama may well linger in the reader's memory for another 35 years.
