Time for a New Calendar - Reux

Spain
We're well into December now, and time is running out on the year, and your 2012 calendar. So I thought I'd update my plug about all the nifty 2013 calendars out there.

First off, there's an astonishing SONG OF ICE AND FIRE calendar for 2013, with art by Marc Simonetti.

9780345531544

You can get that one via Amazon at

http://www.amazon.com/Song-Ice-Fire-2013-Calendar/dp/034553154X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354065445&sr=1-1

or from your favorite local or online bookseller (no, alas, it is not likely to show up at one of those calendar kiosks that pop up in malls around Xmas, they prefer to feature only their own calendars).

Maybe you loved the 2012 calendar so much that you're slavering for more John Picacio art, however. That's cool too, and as it happens, John is going into the calendar business on his own through his new company, Lone Boy. He's doing a "greatest hits" compilation of some of his favorite cover paintings, launching it through KickStarter.

Now, for something completely different, there's the Literary Pin-Up Calendar put together by Patrick Rothfuss and friends.

The art is by Lee Moyer, and all of the proceeds will go to Worldbuilders on behalf of Heifer International. The art is by Lee Moyer, featuring sexy (but tasteful! tasteful!!) pin-ups of characters created by Peter S. Beagle, Ray Bradbury, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, Neil Gaiman, Charlaine Harris, Robin Hobb, N.K. Jemisin, Terry Pratchett, and Patrick Rothfuss... and me. All guaranteed saucy. So if you're a lover of fantasy, of "good girl" art, literature, the female form, or feeding the world's poor... actually, helping them feed themselves... or just want to ogle Nekkid Cersei, this is a calendar you need to have.

Best of all, you can order NOW. Just go to:

So... that gives you three great choices for 2013. Picacio, Simonetti, or Moyer. Hey, why not get all three? Everyone should have a calendar in every room.

Oh, but what about 2014, you ask? The new year will be done with in no time. And it always pays to plan ahead. So right you are. But as it happens, we have you covered. I've just gotten a look at the cover for the 2014 SONG OF ICE AND FIRE calendar, with art with the amazing Gary Gianni, and I couldn't wait to share, so:

Martin 2014 3

That one you can't buy just yet. You will need to wait till July, I fear. But I think the calendar will be worth the wait. Gary has finished nine of the twelve paintings as I write, and they're all more spectacular than the last.

Calendars
I already got mine back in July and cannot wair ro open it. This is my third ASOIF calendar, and sure enough next summer if all is well I shall get the next one too. I like the calendars I have, the artists are all great, but there is something about Simonetti's work that blows me away, in my mind he really captures the vision of ASOIF, that being said, I do not mean to take anything away from the other artists.

PS I have just started reading "A Dance With Dragons" and I dread reaching the end...because I really don't know what to read next...not much outhere compares with ASOIF! I mean I'll re-read Tolkien, finish Jordan's "The Wheel Of Time" (I habe been reading that series for 20 years now!!!), I still have Rotfuss's "The Wiseman's Fear", Vance's "The Dying Earth", William Gibson with "Spook Country" and Guy Gavriel Kay with "Ysabel" and "Under Heaven" , plus Max Brooks and "World War Z". Is that an adequate reading list? Any other suggestions?
