25 Years of Spectra

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Spectra, Suvudu.com is hosting write-ups concerning novels published in each of the 25 years. So far, two have been devoted to Anne Groell—editor on A Song of Ice and Fire (and editor of The World of Ice and Fire)—as she recalls details about the publication of A Game of Thrones and the story behind the cover for A Clash of Kings. In the first post, she also notes that she believes A Dance with Dragons is very close to completion, although the publisher has been wrong about this before.

For those curious about the first Stephen Youll cover that Groell mentions, besides ARCs, the cover was used on the first Swedish edition of A Game of Thrones.  George has the cover in his gallery.
