A GREAT REVIEW FOR GRRM

October 29, 2003

Just had to share some great news. GRRM: A RRetrospective, my massive new career-spanning collection from Subterreanean Press, got a terrific review in the October 26 issue of the WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD.

“… the most ambitious volume ever to come from an American specialty press” and “… one of the most important — and generous — single-author collections of recent years” are my favorite bits, but the reviewer had lots of other good stuff to say about the book as well. For those who are curious, the entire review can be found online here.

Subterreanean released the trade hardcover of the RRetrospective at Torcon, where I was Guest of Honor. That edition has already sold out, as has the forthcoming superdeluxe lettered edition of 52 leatherbound copies, each in a handcrafted traycase. However, some copies of the numbered edition still remain available at this writing, and can be preordered from Subterranean. The numbered edition sells for $125, and for that you get an autograph, a handsome slipcase, and half a million words of stories, scripts, and commentaries.

I’m very proud and pleased with this book, and I’d like to thank all those who contributed to its success: Gardner Dozois for his introduction, Leslie Kay Swigart for her bibliography, and artists Phil Parks, Tim Truman, Ron Brown, Tom Mandrake, Janet Aulisio, and Mark Nelson, whose illustrations brought my characters and stories so splendidly to life. And thanks as well to William Schaefer and Tim Holt of Subterranean Press, for all the time, effort, and care that they lavished on this project. Their exquisite design and attention to detail made GRRM: A RRetrospective a gorgeous example of bookmaking at its best.
