I'm not really a book collector and I want to sell them off to others who will appreciate them.
It's taken the better part of 10 years to amass some of these books and there are some books that rival the biggest Martin collectors in the world.
Update 02/29/2012. Well, that was FAST. I did well on some, fair on others but overall pretty happy with what I got. Total amount generated: 24,400
Everything is sold. For those who came late to the party here is what I let go:
1. Matching Numbered Set of Meisha/Subterranean Press limited editions.
2. Matching Lettered Set of Meisha/Subterranean Press limited editions
3. Fevre Dream Lettered
4. Game of Thrones U.S. 1st edition Silverfoil SIGNED
5. Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings, Storm of Swords British UK 1st editions SIGNED
6. Slipcased Edition Volume 1 Art of a Song of Ice and Fire Numbered Limited Edition SIGNED
7. Volume 2 of Art of A Song of Ice and Fire SIGNED
8. Guardians of Order Game of Thrones Limited NUMBERED rulebook SIGNED
9. Tuf Voyaging Lettered
10. GRRM A RRetrospective. Subterranean Press. Lettered
11. GRRM A RRetrospective. Subterranean Press. Numbered
Some "low value" stuff: I still have a Legends signed by him and Robert Jordan, A Legends II signd by him, and of course Regular U.S. hardbacks books 1 to 5 all signed by him. Books 4 and 5 are first editions. Probably put 1-5 signed on Ebay when I have a chance and then that'll be it. Liquidated my entire GRRM collection in less than a month.
A little sad as it is the passing of an era but no regrets. I can do a lot with the money raised that will make me happy in other ways and I'm happy to say every single book wound up in the hands of GRRM fans and collectors who will hopefully treasure them for years to come like I did. Not one wound up with a secondary book seller as far as I know.
Cheers and thanks for the support and offers.
