george rr martin world of ice and fire gi Watch George R.R. Martin 'The World of Ice and Fire' 92Y live streamGeorge R.R. Martin has created a book that will help “Game of Thrones” fans explore the world of Westeros and the lands beyond. “The World of Ice and Fire,” an illustrated history of Martin’s book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” will be released on Oct. 28, and the author is making one appearance in the United States to promote the project.

On Oct. 26, Martin will be speaking at the 92Y, and fans who aren’t attending the event can watch it live. The 92Y Tumblr will be posting a live stream of it, and people can submit questions for Martin here. The event begins at 8 p.m. ET.

“The World of Ice and Fire” was co-written by Martin and Westeros.org founders Elio M. Garcia, Jr. and Linda Antonsson. It’s described as the “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.'” 

The volume includes more than 170 original maps and pieces of art; a full family tree for Houses Stark, Lannister and Targaryen; a compilation of folk tales passed down through the ages and more.
