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.

Ah. It was a little while ago, yes. Hehe.

He was a dear friend of the family and I knew he worked with many working and aspiring writers st the time in that area so was curious if your paths had crossed. The names you mentioned sound familiar though. Who knows.

Safe travels! Hope to see you at the con. :)

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..

I'm from Barcelona and I'd like to know if you will be "reachable" there. You know, book signing or somethink like that...

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.
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!

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

Have a safe trip! We'll be looking forward to the GOT Comic Con panel on You Tube.

Enjoy the trip(s)!

While in Barcelona you should visit "La Sagrada Familia", you're gonna love it! Come soon!

My bad luck
Just when I'm leaving Madrid for a well deserved vacation you come here. My bad luck, I guess. I'll have to read all about it afterwards. Have fun in Spain!
Jul. 12th, 2012 12:39 pm (UTC)
Have a safe trip!!
I was wondering if you were going to be signing books or something in Madrid and when. I would like to go, too!
Jul. 12th, 2012 02:02 pm (UTC)
I really think that you should be traveling via Air Force 1 and some kind of armored personnel carrier when on the road (with, perhaps, an escort of Dothraki screamers). You need to stay safe for the sake of us all, Mr. Martin! Thanks for everything and best wishes!

Have fun at ComicCon and Spain.

george should perform at wootstock
Google it if you don't know what it is.(its basically nerds performing short acts on stage). It is going on at Comic Con. Wil Wheaton runs it. I think John Scalzi is performing at it. I'd like to see George man up and show us some of his talents. Maybe they could sing a duet?

from russia
And would like to express my appreciation for the adaptation of the book. It's great that thousands of Russian reading rooms could get acquainted with your creativity. But the film - not a book, of course. The book is better :)) Interestingly, Google translator allows you to understand me?

Quickly comes the casting, by the Seven, Ellie Kendrick is adorable: I could just die.

Missed your signing! Couldn't get into the panel
Hope you had fun at comic con! So bummed we didn't make it in for your panel! Then I couldn't get into the signing either! I hung around at the line looking sad and hoping they'd feel sorry for me and let me in, but no such luck!Have fun in spain! See you at the next local con!
