About Tony DiTerlizzi:
New York Times bestselling author and illustrator, Tony DiTerlizzi, has been creating books for over a decade. From his fanciful picture books like The Spider & The Fly (a Caldecott Honor book), to chapter books like Kenny and The Dragon and the WondLa trilogy, Tony always imbues his stories with a rich imagination. With Holly Black, he created the middle-grade series, The Spiderwick Chronicles, which has sold millions of copies, been adapted into a feature film, and has been translated in over thirty countries. In 2014, he teamed up with Lucasfilm to retell the original Star Wars trilogy in a picture book. This year, a highly-anticipated collection of his early work, REALMS: The Roleplaying Game Art of Tony DiTerlizzi was released. October will see the debut of The Story of Diva & Flea, a collaboration with fellow kid’s lit bestseller, Mo Willems. Tony’s work has been featured in Time magazine, USA Today, CNN, PBS, the BBC and The Today Show.

Comments Off on NYC – The World of Ice & Fire
George R. R. Martin appears at the 92nd Street Y on Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 8:00 pm! Moderated by Laura Miller
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.
Every ticket purchase includes a pre-signed copy of George R.R. Martin’s new book, The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones.
As a writer-producer, he 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.
The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones
Written by George R.R. Martin, Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson
The never-before-seen history of Westeros and the lands beyond • With hundreds of pages of all-new material from George R. R. Martin
If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice and Fire.
This lavishly illustrated volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org—perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.
Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers. It is a chronicle which stretches from the Dawn Age to the Age of Heroes; from the Coming of the First Men to the arrival of Aegon the Conqueror; from Aegon’s establishment of the Iron Throne to Robert’s Rebellion and the fall of the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen, which has set into motion the “present-day” struggles of the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons and Targaryens. The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin’s dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice and Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.
