Home Again

A long, long day of travel yesterday, Barcelona to Atlanta to Albuquerque to Santa Fe. Followed by collapse.

But it's a new day, and I am back at my desk in the land of green chile. Just finished getting caught up on my email. So much work to do.

Thanks for all my friends in Spain for making our visit so much fun.

Followed by collapse is right!! :D Hope you had a good trip, though. Someday I'll go to Spain and stand in front of Guernica.

Atlanta airport
I walked right past you in Atlanta airport. I was too busy phoning my wife - telling her guess who I just saw to ask for an autograph. Hope you are refreshed after all the travel

Why was the US mass market paperback and paperback version of A Dance with Dragons pushed back to March 2013?
Aug. 1st, 2012 10:45 pm (UTC)
At the request of booksellers.

Hello Mr Martin,

Just wanted to let you know that I just finished reading A Storm of Swords... I hate you, but I still love you. Hehe isn't that exactly what you want to inspire in people?

Nice to meet you
I hope you enjoyed Barcelona. I really enjoyed sharing with you a wonderful meal and the song of "El Oso y la Doncella" in Barcelona last Saturday, we look forward to come back soon!

I hope you can get some good rest, relax and concentrate on "The Winds of Winter".

Agreed haha :P

If I were to guess, I'd say he's 60% done writing it.
Aug. 2nd, 2012 11:07 am (UTC)
Welcome back George!
What do you think of them making "The Hobbit" a trilogy? Maybe we're going to see Gandalf battle the Necromancer?

At least you made it home in time for football. Cheers!

I read "Sandkings" in Omni Magazine way back when (early 80's I think). I just now connected it with you! I loved that story, and have told many people about it over the years, but couldn't remember the author. It is possible, that in a box in the attic, I still have that copy of Omni.

I'm glad you made it home safely from your trip.

Thank you for sharing the stories in you head with us. Like everyone else, I'm looking forward to the next book :)

Re: Sandkings
I also love Sandkings. I think it could be adapted into a great horror/sci-fi flick. I know Outer Limits did it as a short episode, but technology is soo much greater now. It would be amazing to sink into that Aquarium and watch the Sandkings battle it out against each other and the other creature's their God/Owner drops in to ammuse his party guests. Plus when they do escape, it could be one of the scariest movies ever if done correctly. One of my fave Short Stories along with the Yellow Wallpaper by Perkins-Gilman.

Not sure what happened to my first comment. Stinking iPhone.
Welcome home. Just finished the "A song of Ice and fire" first five.
I'm a little sad now. I'm looking for some other books to catch up on till book 6.
Any help would be appreciated.
Anyone please feel free to reply. I'm new on here and it was a bit of a pain signing up.
GRRM, if you find yourself in Lubbock, please post so I can get an autograph.
Aug. 13th, 2012 04:28 am (UTC)
No plans to be in Lubbock, but the worldcon in 2013 will be in San Antonio, and I will definitely be on hand for that one.

And I will be in College Station next year as well.

See my Appearances page on my website for links and details.

Returning to the land of real green chile is a very good thing. Oh yes indeed.

To market, to market for fine Spanish ham
Home again, home again - Green Chile! Hot damn!

Aug. 3rd, 2012 04:44 pm (UTC)

If it is not on my Appearances page, it is not on my schedule.

Hi George!
I just read on your website that you'll be coming to Australia next year. I can't tell you how excited I am!
I have questions about both BatB and Brienne for you, so I'll be first in line.
Aug. 3rd, 2012 11:52 am (UTC)
Hell omister Martin, I just wanna tell you that i'm so excited cause "Les Dragons de Meereen" will be in store in France in one month and that's hard to wait, I really wanna know what's gonna happen to all these characters; I want to see how far you can go in them darkness and how you can make tham suffer in the same way!! You make me dream and i'm sure not being the only one, so merci beaucoup, and have a good day

Welcome Back!!
I'm glad to hear your back. Not all is quite on the home front. While you were away Eli Manning turned into a fairy and is hanging out with Deon Sanders. lol. I guess money knows no bounds. By the way, in case your wondering hanging out with Deon is worse than dressing like a fairy.

Seeing how you are such a big tolkien fan,how do you feel about the hobbit adaptation being split into a trilogy?
Aug. 3rd, 2012 04:43 pm (UTC)
Re: hobbit
It boggles the mind a bit, but I am willing to give Peter Jackson the benefit of the doubt.

Question: do you make your own chile, or do you have a special place you visit faithfully? If you make your own batch, I am sure I'm not the only one who'd love a recipe or three. ;)
Aug. 4th, 2012 05:20 pm (UTC)
I don't cook.

But Santa Fe is full of places with great chile. I would suggest Tecolote Cafe or Chris's Cafe for breakfast, the Shed or Tomasita's or (especially) Maria's for dinner or lunch.

Dear George,

I have devoured your Game of Thrones books recently; I would like to thank you for your excellent work, the rhythm of the prose and story line are impeccable.

The balance you strike between the absolutely real and the magical also ensnares me, it is a style I love.

I have been working hard for the past few years to put myself in a position to be able to write myself, your style fascinates me and although I do write fantasy our story lines are quite different.

I can imagine you are an extremely busy individual yourself, however I would like to ask a small favour, I am looking for a mentor, I would be eternally grateful if that could be you, yet I understand that this may be unlikely, however maybe you could suggest someone?

Yours sincerely,
A Fan & Aspiring Author.

Re: A fan
I have no time to mentor anyone, sorry.

I would suggest you check out the FAQ on my website, where I have some good advice for aspiring writers.
