This is an exploration of George R.R. Martin's bestselling A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series, on which the HBO series A Game of Thrones is based. The world created by George R.R. Martin in his high fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire - now the basis for the hit HBO series Game of Thrones - is not only richly drawn, but also immensely popular. By the time the TV show aired in May 2011, the series had already sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. Since then, A Game of Thrones and subsequent titles in the series have appeared consistently on the bestseller lists. The latest title in the series, A Dance with Dragons , sold nearly 300,000 copies on its first day in print. Beyond the Wall explores the book series' influences, its place in the fantasy pantheon, its challenging narrative choices, and the pull of its stunningly epic scope.
