UK Re-release and Ebooks

Voyager, George R.R. Martin’s publisher in the U.K., has informed Westeros.org via via Twitter that they’re going to have a meeting with Sky (the U.K. broadcaste with rights to Game of Thrones) with the intention of sorting out plans to re-release A Game of Thrones with a media tie-in cover, much as Bantam will be doing in the U.S. in March. This edition would also feature brand new typesetting. They also noted to us that “properly proofread” ebooks (unfortunately, the U.S. editions—at least in the Kindle format—have introduced many typos into the text) are in the works, and clarified that these would be coming out well before Spring. They explained that usually, the process of converting to e-book is done out of the sight and hands of the editors, but that in this case Voyager is making a special effort for George.

This was all prompted by this tweet: “Also v busy prepping for THE George R. R. Martin on Mon. Building a fort of A Game of Thrones books around my desk. I think he’d be proud.” It looks like George will be in London for a day or two after taking leave of Malta, and doubtless will then be headed back home. His next public appearance will be at Days of Ice and Fire, a Fantasy Flight Games-sponsored event in Roseville, Minnesota.
