Description

Alien meets Psycho in this chilling mystery set on a spaceship, soon to be an original series on Netflix, by the #1 best-selling author of A Song of Ice and Fire George R.R. Martin. Brought to electrifying life with artwork by David Palumbo.


On a voyage toward the boundaries of the known universe, nine misfit academics seek out first contact with a shadowy alien race.


But the real enigma is the Nightflyer itself, a cybernetic wonder with an elusive captain no one has ever seen in the flesh.


Soon, however, the crew discovers that their greatest mystery - and most dangerous threat - is an unexpected force aboard the ship wielding a thirst for blood and terror...


Dark and beautiful art by David Palumbo brings the words of George R.R. Martin to life in a story of horror, murder and outer space that you do not want to miss.

Review quote

'I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers'
Robert Jordan


'Of those who work in the grand epic-fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best. In fact . . . this is as good a time as any to proclaim him the American Tolkien'
Time


'Long live George Martin....A literary dervish, enthralled by complicated characters and vivid language, and bursting with the wild vision of the very best tale tellers'
The New York Times


'George R.R. Martin is one of our very best writers, and this is one of his very best books'
Raymond E. Feist


Praise for A Song of Ice and Fire:


'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best ... tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting'
