Leaving on a Jet Plane...

... in a few hours. This time my destination is San Diego Comicon.

(I was the first registrant at the very first comicon, did I mention? Drew about thirty people to a seedy hotel in Greenwich Village. But I did get to meet Steve Ditko and Fabulous Flo Steinberg. Comicons have grown since).

I expect I will see some of you at the HBO panel. I'm the lucky one, I don't have to stand in line for hours to get in.

From San Diego, I fly direct to Spain. Look for me in Aviles, Madrid, and Barcelona.

I will be scarce around here until I get back home at month's end, but I leave the house, the office, and the blog in the hands of my trio of able assistants, Terrible Ty, Rambunctious Raya, and Perky Pat. You may hear from them from time to time while I'm gone.

First Comicon? Did you happen to know a fellow back in the day named Ken Krueger? Owned a comic shop down that way and had a hand in the organization of the early comicons.

Don't remember the name, but it's been a long time.

That first comicon was organized by Len Wein and Bernie Bubnis.

Game of thrones season 3
Hi. Though i'm sure you won't read this, I really don't know where else to write to you or the producers of the show.. I just wanted to ask if you've ever considered Michael Fassbender as Edmure Tully, because I came across a picture of him and I immediately thought that he would be amazing as Edmure. I think he looks just like him! Auburn hair, bright blue eyes, high cheekbones. I just wanted to let you know how I felt, although I doubt my opinion will make a difference, just wanted to get it off my chest. Thanks! , Sofia.

PS: Sorry if I misspelled/misfrased something..

Re: Spain - Barcelona
not all the details have been arranged yet or made public. But we do expect there will be some sort of public event while in Barcelona. The best suggestion I can offer you is to check the Gigamesh web site, or contact Gigamesh and ask if they have made final plans for George's public events.

George will be doing sessions at the Celsius festival in Aviles (Asturias) starting on July 18th, I believe. Haven't seen his schedule yet, so can't give you details.

Hope to meet you while we're visiting.

1000 Winds of Fortune upon your heels...
Have a good time GRRM! You seem quite suited to this life of swift travels and gab of worlds you share from your skull.
LOL!
I suck at it, so I'll stop.
Too bad they STILL don't have Comic Con in the Village! Curse you California for taking even COMIC CON from us here in NY!

again,
Safe Travels fare, Ser Martin!

PS, please tell us since Winter is coming you'll be dedicating your time to Book 6!!!
AND PSS, Cersei is SUCH A proverbial royal bitch!!!

:)

Hiya Mr Martin!
I wanted to send you an email, but I can't easily find your email address on the site. I found it once, but it has disappeared off the face of the earth (your site)! Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for all the endless hours of reading. Very much looking forward to the next one and in the meantime I also enjoy reading your blog and hearing about your coming and goings :) Good on you for running the charity drive and I wish I could be attending some of your events in America! Wish you and Pat and Neil and Brandon would come down to Australia one time. I might just die of happiness... or just squeal endlessly and pass out from lack of oxygen. xxx
