Praise for George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire
“The only fantasy series I’d put on a level with J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings . . . It’s a fantasy series for hip, smart people, even those who don’t read fantasy.”—Chicago Tribune
“Martin amply fulfills the first volume’s promise and continues what seems destined to be one of the best fantasy series ever written.”—The Denver Post, on A Clash of Kings
“Martin has produced—is producing, since the series isn’t over—the great fantasy epic of our era. It’s an epic for a more profane, more jaded, more ambivalent age than the one Tolkien lived in.”—Lev Grossman, Time
“Addictive . . . George R. R. Martin has created the unlikely genre of the realpolitik fantasy novel.”—Rolling Stone, on A Feast for Crows
“Epic fantasy as it should be written: passionate, compelling, convincingly detailed and thoroughly imagined.”—The Washington Post, on A Dance with Dragons
“I always expect the best from George R. R. Martin, and he always delivers.”—Robert Jordan

This is just a simply beautiful calendar and I can't wait for 2013 to hang it up!
The pictures depicted are:
January - The Night's Watch
February - Sam & Gilly on the Cinnamon Wind
March - The Iron Islands (theon?)
April - Road to Kings Landing (just a bunch of swords intertwined)
May - Mother of Dragons (same as the cover art)
June - Riverrun
Centerfold - The artists sketchbook. Several rough sketches of characters
July - Forging of the Iron throne (Balerion breathing fire, blacksmiths creating throne)
August - Little Birds (Varys' spies)
September - Battle for the Wall (Stannis)
October - House of Black and White (Arya)
November - The Kings Hand (Tyrion naked lying with Shae)
December - North of the Wall (Direwolf killing a stag)
The sketchbook is the highlight for me and was a nice touch for the centerfold. The previous versions of the calendar just repeated a prior months artwork. Mother of Dragons is my favorite artwork in the calendar. I like the subjects depicted in Little birds and forging the iron throne. The lowlights for me are the road to kings landing and the kings hand. Road to kings landing is supposedly depicting many swords intertwined in battle but to me it just seems odd that so many swords could possibly in such a short space in an actual battle (no room to swing!). And I feel a bit weird about having a naked dwarf hanging from my wall. Other than that Donato Giancola did a superb job on the artwork.
The manufacturing is garbage.
The first book I opened had about 15 unattached pages, because the binding was so terrible.
I stashed those pages and thought to myself, I should reglue that at some point...
Then I went about my life.
I'm really glad I've already read these books, because I had the book in my back seat while driving one day, and decided I should put the windows down. About 20 more pages flew out, and I lost 5 or so out the window.
Pay a few bucks more and get a QUALITY set of these books.
The books themselves are very interesting. But I must warn potential readers, these books aren't for the faint of heart, those with short attention spans, or who don't enjoy fantasy, cuz you will be sorely disappointed. I myself, having love the fantasy genre and enjoy it when authors add a sense of depth and reality to a fictional setting, love the series. I love how Martin actually has variety of characters. And that there are many sides to a person, while still having some typical "Baddies" that I enjoy hating. And Martin provides a very interesting and realistic (my personal opinion) portrayal of a medieval society, while still giving it a magical edge.
Over all, very good books for those with the taste to read them.
However, my issue is with the books themselves. When I got to the second book I noticed that approximately 70 pages are missing. I can't tell if this is the case for the rest of the books, but I'm certainly dissatisfied with the product.
