    Though the official publication date of the HarperCollins/Voyager (1996) edition of A Game of Thrones was technically earlier, Bantam went to print several months early in order to distribute copies at the American Bookseller's Association. On his website FAQ, Martin notes that he considers the Bantam edition to be the true first but that the print run was also significantly larger than the UK first edition and thus less scarce.
