Former leading New Zealand publisher and bookseller, and widely experienced judge of both the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, talks about what he is currently reading, what impresses him and what doesn't, along with chat about the international English language book scene, and links to sites of interest to booklovers.
"Game of Thrones," the hit HBO
show that everyone has been talking about for years, is based on George
R. R. Martin’s fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire. Of the seven
planned novels, five are currently published. It’s arguably the greatest
fantasy series of the century so far. However, many readers stop after
the first book, A GAME OF THRONES. I just want to let you know that this
is a huge mistake!
