AbeBooks Puts George RR Martin on the $20 Bill

Inspired by Jane Austen‘s upcoming spot on the British £10 note, AbeBooks printed some imaginary money featuring great authors–including George RR Martin on the $20 bill. Here’s more from the bookseller’s blog:

He’s been writing since 1970 and yet Martin is the author of the moment thanks to the continuing success of Game of Thrones on the telly.
