Back From LA

Just back from a week in LA.

I did Conan (the O'Brien, not the Cimmerian) and the Today Show, and taped a segment for a BBC special about Machiavelli... along with the usual dozen or so meeetings.

Also, while in town, swung by the Bookstar in Studio City and signed all their stock of my books, which was considerable. So if you're an Angeleno or just visiting LA, and want to snag an autographed copy of one of my novels, get yourself to Studio City while the supply lasts.

And now I'm back in the land of wolves and savage dust storms, digging out from under.

A brief heads-up
Hey, George—
First off, I just cannot wait to read more and have loved your work since the Thousand Worlds stories started showing up in the little mass market Hugo anthologies my friend Mark had stockpiled in his basement. You're the best. I've been reading the newest excerpt on the webpage and thought you'd want to know that there's a small typo—you've got "Straights of Tarth" about 2/3 of the way down. Can't wait to read more.

GoT '90s edition
I know this is... maybe not entirely related to your appearance on Conan, but I had to share it and didn't know of anywhere else I could get your attention: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fPgIIB67bw

More to the topic at hand, I really enjoyed the "spoilers" you threw out on the show! I always knew this whole mess was a Planet of the Apes-style mindscrew.

Great interview on Conan, George! I love how you smirked gleefully at the video of the tv viewers' reactions to the Red Wedding.

Also, the outtake "spoiler" real ("Jaime starts a metal band called Kingslayer"..."Hodor") was hilarious. I've watched it several times now!

Conan and his writers get all the credit for the spoilers. I am not nearly so funny.

Love your work
Was the Iliad a piece of inspiration for A Song of Fire & Ice?

I too enjoyed your Conan interview! And was super excited to hear that we may soon have new pages to turn!

I love you, Mr. George RR Martin, but, and I type this with delicacy and utmost respect, going on Conan and then doing a book signing does not constitute "everyday life".

Hope you've had nice travels Ser Martin. I enjoyed seeing you on Conan. I feel like I know you!! I know I adore you! Now that you're home you can work on the Jean Cocteau. ;) My friend from HS moved out there too from Rockland County (over the border of NY/NJ years ago and told me she lives near the JC. I hope to visit her and come and see you there maybe some day. :) xoxo

Hey George saw the interview with Conan and you were brilliant. Interesting and entertaining....well done!
But I know there is nothing so sweet as coming home after a trip away no matter how enjoyable.

Awesome television appearance! I'm seriously glad the television series is able to push so many people toward the novels. I've gotten my entire group of friends to read the books and the newly shared interest has led to some of the most entertaining and memorable conversations we've ever had with each other.

greetings
it was good to see you around on television. after the red wedding people had to know the real brain behind Westeros (i am one of your innumerable admirers but some of the show watchers remain ignorant about the books hope that will change after RW). A break is very important given the nature of work you do and to utilize it in such a way was even better.
After this i can see WoW coming out by the end of 2014 and even if you refuse to comment on the release date i have this gut feeling that as always you are going to surprise the readers by doing what they dont expect i.e releasing it by 2014. keep up the brilliant work.

Spice Mining
As an aspiring writer who is still struggling to find form, voice and hit my stride, and who seems to spend a great deal more time thinking about writing than actually writing anything of substance, (fits & starts) I wonder how you yourself manage with all the day-to-day pressures and distractions of your deserved success?

Minions.

Minions are the answer.
