Margaret Atwood & George R.R. Martin Fansite Curate Flipboard Magazines

flipboardbigNovelists Margaret Atwood and George R.R. Martin fansite Westeros.org have Flipboard digital magazines. Anyone can read these free magazines at these links: MaddAddam’s World and The World of Ice and Fire.

Random House partnered with the digital app Flipboard to build these new offerings. AppNewser has all the details:

Atwood’s Flipboard is based on her new novel MaddAddamm, and the fan site Flipboard is a collection of all things related to the author’s worlds. These Random House publications are included in sections curated by Flipboard’s editorial team. App users can discover the magazine in sections including: books, culture, tech, and Flipboard picks. In addition, Flipboard is promoting the new publications with an exclusive “Red Couch” interview with Random House authors including Atwood.

Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that George R.R. Martin curated the Westeros.org Flipboard magazine.
