"One has to be persistent in dealing with you people." - George R. R. Martin was born on September 20, 1948, in Bayonne, New Jersey
- an American screenwriter and author of fantasy, horror and science fiction
- Martin's work has been described by the Los Angeles Times as having "complex story lines, fascinating characters, great dialogue, perfect pacing", while the New York Times sees it as "fantasy for grown ups", others feel it is dark
and cynical. - His characters are often
unhappy or, at least, unsatisfied –
holding on to idealisms in a ruthless world. Many have elements of tragic heroes in them.
- He is best known for A Song of Ice and Fire,
his international bestselling series of epic fantasy novels that HBO adapted for their dramatic
Thrones. - The series has received
critical praise from authors, readers,
and critics alike. Martin was selected by Time magazine as one of the "2011 Time 100", a list of the "most influential people in the world". THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION!
