    I live in Asia and run an ASOIAF blog, many people in my country asked me which English version should they choose. Since it's hard to find them in bookstores here, I don't know how they look and feel in read life.

    So I wonder, how shall I recommend to them which version to choose, in terms of paper/font/print quality?

    1. For low budget, the choice between US paperback / US Mass Market Paperback / US leather bound set / UK paperback in 6 volumes / UK paperback in 7 volumes. (I also want to know how to tell US paperback from US mmp since online booksellers in my country don't tell you which version they're selling, I can only tell from the covers, but it seems paperback and mmp use the same cover sometimes.)

    2. For higher budget, the choice between common US / UK hardcover.

    3. For TWOIAF, the choice between US / UK hardcover.  

    4. For F&B, the choice between US / UK hardcover.

    5. For AKotSK, the choice between US / UK hardcover.

    You can come to our FB group and ask us!

    There are many takes to collecting the firsts!



  2. Hello Ran!

    I have sent you several messages after we last conversed more than two months ago, but I believe you were not able to read them because your mail inbox was full!

    I wanted to briefly ask you again regarding us being able to contact old non-active members. This venerable forum was THE HUB when it comes to collectors trading/buying/selling specific books and it would be amazing if we can get ahold of their contact info so we can pursue the deals!

    By any chance, would it be possible to get a contact info for the fellow member named Dramatic Exit? 

    Greatly appreciated!


  3. Happy New Year everyone.

    Since the group's inception, we have garnered more than 200 members and have discussed many topics related to GRRM's works.

    We have also covered proofs, manuscripts, 1sts, signed, and limited edition works.

    There are many art connoisseurs amongst our ranks who have graciously shared their artwork collection.

    This is not reserved only for rare books and artworks collectors. Others have also shared minted coins by Shire Post and prop replicas collection.

    If you guys want to find more about collecting GRRM's works, our door is always open!

    I am looking for a copy of A Feast for Crows by GRRM in the signed-limited edition by Subterranean Press. I have all the others. It doesn't need to be a specific number.

    Thanks for your help!

    I am looking for any Letter or Numbered matching set for SP or MM. How can I get in touch with sellers listed? 

    Hello Mike! My suggestion is for you to use search function on the forum, seek the members who have to e matching numbered/lettered set, and message them directly.

    Or you can use www.camelotbooks.com to find matching set. They currently have two matching numbered sets I believe? You can directly email them for the set ([email protected]). Email Kim and she can help you out. Please do say hi for me (Arnold) if you do message Kim!

  7. Hello Becca69!

    I am new to the forum and I joined to seek limited/lettered editions of the Song of Ice and Fire books.

    First of all, thank you very much for hosting the space for all interested parties to buy and sell!

    Could you kindly update the "want" list with the want list of my own?

    [WTB]: Any lettered edition of the Song of Ice and Fire by both MM and SP. The books need to come in original slipcasing and they need to be in FINE condition, without any visible detects including foxing, tears, chpiping, wrinkles, damps, ownership signature marks, corner and edge wears, color discloration, fading, and etc.

    I am not looking for a matching set as the pricing tends to double-triple. I am just interested in any Lettered edition, individually!

    I have been a collector of other modern firsts and antiquarian books and as such, the lettered books need to be in the most pristine condition!


    Thank you very much!
