Time’s Techland on Top 10 SF/F of Decade

At Time.com’s new Techland group blog, Lev Grossman—the critic who dubbed George R.R. Martin “America’s Tolkien” and a recently published fantasy novelist in his own right—presents a list of his picks for the ten best SF/F novels of the decade. At #2? A Storm of Swords, of which Grossman writes:

“The third and (so far) best novel in Martin’s bloody marvelous Song of Ice and Fire epic, which depicts the collapse of Westeros into civil war following the death of the king. Martin delivers blow after stunning blow to his characters—the “Red Wedding” is one of the most devastating scenes in contemporary fantasy.”
