A treasure of books and magazines

One of the holiday gifts I received this past season was a bundle of five books -- the first five books in George R.R. Martin’s ongoing fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire. People are getting to know the books thanks to the HBO series named after the first book, “A Game of Thrones.” Martin (I love writing that!) published the first novel in 1996.
