Odds and Ends and More Odds

We leave on Monday for Ireland. Seems like I just got back from Australia. Damn, but I'm tired. And still not caught up on all the stuff that piled up here while I was travelling.

Ah, well. I knew the job was dangerous when I took it.

Got a million things going down, on a number of fronts. Let me touch on a few.

For those of you who like to hear me pontificate, there's a new podcast with me up on io9 where I talk with John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtly, holding forth on a wide variety of topics, including the HBO show, Wild Cards, fandom, my comic book projects, the anthologies I've been editing with Gardner Dozois, and of couse A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, even the infamous Meereenese knot. You can give a listen at http://io9.com/5656513/ -- though I should mention that the interview was recorded last spring, and parts of it are already outdated.

On other fronts, got some cool news from my editors at Bantam Spectra. The mass market paperback of A GAME OF THRONES has just gone back to press for its 34th printing. Which normally would not be worthy of note -- but as it happens, this new print run will push the paperback over the 1,000,000 copy mark. A lovely round number, I think.

Oh, and for Wild Cards fans, I should mention that Pat (wretched Cowboys fan that he is) of Pat's Fantasy Hotlist is doing one of his famous giveaways for the Tor reissue of the first volume in the series. Check it out at http://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/2010/10/win-copy-of-wild-cards-1-edited-by.html This new edition will include some extra added content: three brand new stories, never before published, by Carrie Vaughn, Michael Cassutt, and David D. Levine, plus all the text of the original 1987 edition.

SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH, our Jack Vance tribute anthology, was a finalist for the British Fantasy Award and has been nominated for the World Fantasy Award. If you missed the Subterranean limited edition and the Voyager trade hardcover, and have been waiting for a cheaper edition, wait no longer. Harper has just released SONGS in a trade paperback:

Pick up your copy from Amazon UK, or any other online UK bookshop.

G'day George! I apologize that I didn't watch your blog space in the last few months, and so therefore had no idea you where visiting Down Under! I sincerely hope that you enjoyed your stay here, and hope that you return when your schedule isn't so busy! My best mate and I where commenting last night that if we knew you where in the country, and if you had book signings on your list of things-to-do, we would have traveled ANYWHERE to get our books signed! We will be ready if that ever comes up in the future (hint hint)! All the best anyway, I look forward to "A Game of Thrones" HBO, and all of your future work!
