The World of Ice and Fire is a companion volume to the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, provisionally known as a 'world book'. The book is being written by Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson in consultation with George R. R. Martin. In the United States the book was published by Bantam, in the w:United Kingdom:United Kingdom by Harper Voyager.

History

Garcia and Antonsson run Westeros, the largest A Song of Ice and Fire community and online concordance of information on the series on the internet. Martin has already confirmed that he sometimes uses the existing online concordance to rapidly double-check information if he is away from his notes. He has joked that his co-authors know more about the continent of Westeros than he does.

Contents

The World of Ice and Fire is divided in several parts:[3]

  • Ancient History, starting with the Dawn Age, and ending with the Doom of Valyria
  • The Reign of the Dragons, telling about the war of Conquest
  • The Targaryen Kings, about the reigns of all Targaryen Kings, beginning with King Aegon I Targaryen and ending with the reign of King Aerys II Targaryen
  • The Fall of the Dragons, about the Year of the False Spring, Robert's Rebellion itself and its aftermath.
  • The Glorious Reign
  • The Seven Kingdoms, histories about the North, the Wall and Beyond, the Riverlands, the Vale, the Iron Islands, the Westerlands, the Reach, the Stormlands and Dorne.
  • Beyond the Sunset Kingdoms, about the Free Cities, and the lands east from there.
  • Appendix, consisting out of a family tree for House Targaryen, a family tree for House Stark, a family tree for House Lannister, and an overview for the reigns of the Kings.

Further, the book contains artwork by twenty-seven different artists.[3] Both the art in the book, and the family trees displayed as an appendix, are completely out-of-universe.[4]
