The Armageddon Rag


The Armageddon Rag

"The Armageddon Rag" is a book by author George R. R. Martin, published in 1983. Unlike his later novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, it is a mystery novel rather than fantasy. [cite web|url=http://www.sfsite.com/05b/ar248.htm |title=The Armageddon Rag: A review by Katharine Mills |author=Katharine Mills |accessdate=2008-02-03] Martin has described it as probably his most ambitious and experimental novel but "a total commercial disaster" that almost destroyed his career.
