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 full title is The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones.

The book was 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 United Kingdom by Harper Voyager.

The World of Ice and Fire was released on October 28th, 2014.[1][2]

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.

Samples

A few sample chapters were released in the months prior to the release of the book:

Further, Harper Voyager released a Fact of Ice and Fire in the days leading up to the release of the book, through their twitter account.[4]

Cover

The english versions of The World of Ice and fire are available in two different versions: the red cover, displayed on the top of this page, and a black cover. The former version of the book is published by Bantam, the latter by Harper Voyager.
