Biography

Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson are authors known for their contributions and expertise in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, co-writing in 2014 with Martin The World of Ice & Fire, a companion book for the series. They are also the founders of the fansite Westeros.org, one of the earliest fan websites for A Song of Ice and Fire.

Elio Garcia was attending the University of Miami, while his partner Linda Antonsson was living in Sweden. At that time, in 1996, Antonsson introduced Garcia to the A Song of Ice and Fire book series when it came out on paperback. After the second book, A Clash of Kings, was released, they decided to create a forum for discussion of the series, creating an early iteration of Westeros.org, and later expanded it as the series became more popular. As of 2016, Westeros.org had more than 100,000 registered members.

Garcia and Antonsson met while playing a game based on The Lord of the Rings over the internet. They were married the same day that The World of Ice & Fire was released, 16 years after the couple had become engaged. Garcia moved to Sweden in 1999, where the couple now lives.
