Coming to Chicago

Now it can be told. I'll be headed back to Chicago (my old stomping grounds, in my younger days) next month, April 16-18, as a guest of Avatar Press at C2E2, the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo. For more details check out

http://www.avatarpress.com/conventions/c2e2

and the rest of the C2E2 website.

Avatar is bringing me in to help promote the debut of their adaptation of my historical horror novel FEVRE DREAM, due out that month. They're doing the novel as a ten-issue miniseries, scripted by Daniel Abraham, with art by Rafa Lopez. I'll be doing the usual round of panels and readings, and also spending a lot of time at the Avatar booth in the dealer's room, signing copies of the first issue of FEVRE DREAM and whatever else you might want me to sign.

See you there, I hope!

Very cool. I doubt we'll make it out to the con, but I'm excited to check out the Fevre Dream adaptation.

Ok, I know this isn't a comment about this post, but thanks for letting us fans know about the suvudu cage matches. I haven't laughed that hard in a while and it really brightened my day.

Re: Cage Matches
Yeah, it goes better than I hoped.

I liked Fevre Dream. Personally, I'm not into comics, but it's a story I can see working well in that form and gaining new readers.

Wow! Congratulations. Seems like this a big year for you on the little screen!
Loads of luck. I'll be sure to catch this when this comes out. May there be many more.

Not a tv mini series
FYI, this is a graphic novel adaptation of Fevre Dream. Not tv or film.

I wasn't going to go to C2E2, but now I may have to.

Go U Northwestern!
Any chance you'll be stopping by our old alma mater? Drinks at Nevin's perhaps?

Just read Fevre Dream as part of a SciFi book club I'm in. One of the big discussion points is that we all independently imagined Abner as looking like you in this profile pic, only wartier.

Great book!

Con stuff
Cool.
So is the reading session going to be a mix of your works, just DANCE, or just FEVRE?

A yet unrevealed Dance chapter would be super sweet...I'm sure that hasn't been brought up to you by anyone yet. Actually a Dying of the Light or Meat Man nugget would be way cool.

Either way- looking forward to the visit.

I've never been to a convention before, but my friend and I are now strongly considering going. Will there be a chance to get a book signed without getting a VIP pass?

Saw this on the Avatar ticket page:

"Also included is access to special Avatar VIP-only autograph lines for Garth Ennis, George R.R. Martin, and Max Brooks. Only VIP holders will get into these priority signings, the best way to get autographs from these creators!"

So it sounds like VIPs get first crack at autographs, then everyone else.

Damn!
I live an hour's train ride from Chicago. You are my all time favorite author in the universe, ever. I mean that sincerely. However, on the evening in question, I will be enjoying the following activities: cleaning up after my children, disciplining said children, taking dogs out to crap, and waiting up til 1 AM for my over worked under paid husband. I'm just afraid I'm booked solid. Unless of course they invent a way for me to LEGALLY strap my kids down and force them to be quiet for several hours. But, alas, that has not happened yet. I'm afraid you'll have to await my presence for many moons to come, Mr. Martin. Until then I'll be cuddling up with A Song of Ice and Fire to refresh my memory whilst awaiting the Dance... *tear*

Can't wait for C2E2, George. This will be my first Con, and I intend to make meeting you a priority. I've digested just about all of your work that's in print, and some that's not. See you in Chicago!

Any chance you'll be doing any other signings in the area while you are visiting?
