Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 3/24/2011

    " A useful look at the author's earlier years. There are some award winners and a few clunkers (which he cheerfully admits). Even some of the better ones remind us that the bar has been raised somewhat since these appeared.

    All in all, worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 2/27/2011

    " Some of the stories are excellent, a handful are kind of blah. I listened to the audiobook on my commute and it was great in that format. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 1/5/2011

    " Martin's short stories do his novels justice and show the progression of how he became the dominant writer he is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stella | 9/25/2010

    " This is a brilliant collection, the only reason it gets four stars is that some of the stories just don't deserve five. But a lot of them are five star whorthy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 5/10/2010

    " Good collection of GRRM's short stories. Printed chronologically, interesting to see the progression from his earliest published works through to some of his award winning stories. Sandkings was probably my favorite, but there were lots of good ones (and a few mediocre ones). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donald | 2/6/2010

    " Reread this in August of 2009 after receiving this as a gift back a few years ago. The version I have is actually the UK version that encompasses both volumes.

    Martin proves himself the master of more than just "epic fantasy" and this is well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 1/27/2010

    " Contains two of my favorite short stories "With Morning Comes Mistfall" and "The Second Kind of Lonliness." You must, at least read those two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/11/2010

    " Some GREAT stories, some total crap. An enjoyable read if you like sci-fi/fantasy. "

About the Author
Author George R. R. Martin

George R. R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally ever since. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid ’90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
