Hi,

 

I am doing a gift exchange on another website, and the person I'm assigned to likes the author George HH Martin. I know nothing about sci/fi and fantasy books.

Would someone please be able to suggest similar authors?

 

Thank you so much for your help-

Sherry

Robin Hobb comes to mind.

Also, since Martin's Game of Thrones became an HBO miniseries this year, there's a lot of gift-type stuff out there related to it -- calendars, t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc.  Perhaps that might be a useful gift idea.

Hi,

Thank you very much! I'll check into that author and the gift ideas.  What kinds of stores would sell those things? Barnes and Noble?  Please pardon my ignorance.

 

Thank you,

Sherry

HBO sells things related to their series on the web, and Amazon had calendars, games, books of artwork and other items.  CafePress has some items as well. I don't get out to the mall much, so I'm not sure what's available in brick and mortar shops -- sorry.  Perhaps a bookstore or video place (if they haven't all gone extinct now) would have something locally, or those calendar stands they set up at the mall for the holidays?
