Back From LA

Spain
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.

I'm reading A Distant Mirror by Tuchman - very useful for asoiaf. One siege technique she describes is digging under castle walls, propping up the tunnels with wood, the firing the wood causing that section of wall to lose its support and fall. It's a great little book following mainly one rather high placed and successful knight with a castle East of Paris. As harsh as Westeros seems sometimes now I think you have softened things up over there compared to our history.

Oh, yes. As brutal as Westeros can be, it's Disneyland compared to some episodes of our real history.
