Review: The Lands of Ice and Fire
Missing GoT already? Here's what to check out after the HBO phenomenon's finale. We may never know. For starters, GoT was not George R. Martin's first book.

George R. The centerpiece of this gorgeous collection is guaranteed to be a must-have for any fan: the complete map of the known world, joining the lands of the Seven Kingdoms and the lands across the Narrow Sea for the first time in series history.

Tagging along is his diminutive squire, a boy called Egg—whose true name is hidden from all he and Dunk encounter. Though more improbable heroes may not be found in all of Westeros, great destinies lay ahead for these two. The Lansdale name is legendary in the horror field.
They are canon — and the only maps to cover the east of Essos, including everything from Qarth to Asshai. In I was commissioned to illustrate the official maps of Westeros and Essos for the world of Game of Thrones. Each map is 3 feet by 2 feet in size, 72 square feet of maps in total. Warning — the last map contains spoilers as it shows the character journeys up to the end of A Dance With Dragons. The entire world map of Game of Thrones stretches past the Bone Mountains that divide Essos down the middle, over to the far East. Those distant lands include Asshai, in the Land under Shadow, with the mysterious and luminous ghost grass, as well as Carcosa, and Leng — both Lovecraft references that make it into Game of Thrones on the very edge of the world.
