Ok, don’t get too excited you Game of Thrones fans! This book is not written only by George R-Reezy Martin, but it does include a couple short stories by him. The whole book is a collection of short stories written by multiple authors (including some of my favorite guys like Roger Zelazny and Lewis Shiner), but all within the same world and same characters. It’s amazing how all the authors bring their own funk and style to their individual parts while staying in the same world!
Long story short, this book is like if the X-Men were real. It’s about a crazy alien virus that infects humans, making some super human, and some into mutated freaks. Great read if you love sci-fi, fiction, and great story telling in general! AND, it’s just the first in a ‘trilogy’ of sorts, so there’s more to go after you read this one! It’s cold outside! Go get this book and curl up by a fire!
