Coming to San Diego

The next convention on my calendar is the San Diego Comicon.

My dance card is already almost full. Yes, there will be a GAME OF THRONES panel, and I'll be on it. It is scheduled for Friday, July 19, 2:50 to 3:45, in Hall H To be followed by an autographing at the WB booth. Of course, I'll be joined on the panel by half a dozen cast members (no, don't know which ones yet) and David and Dan.

I will also be doing a signing on Saturday, July 20, from 11:00am to noon, in the official autograph area. That one is for Bantam.

Working on two more signings: one for Avatar Comics, which will be launching their new comic of THE SKIN TRADE (based on my novella, scripted by Daniel Abraham) at the con, and one with the marvelous Gary Gianni, the artist for the 2014 ICE & FIRE calendar, which will debut in San Diego. Details on those when I have 'em.

I am not on any panels besides the one for GAME OF THRONES, nor will I be doing any readings (come to worldcon for that), but there should be plenty of chances for anyone who wants me to deface their books, maps, games, videotapes, or body parts with my illegible scrawl. But PLEASE, if you want my autograph, come to one of these four signings. Don't stop me in the hotel lobby or on the street or in a restaurant when I am trying to have dinner.


I now have the details on another of my signings, so I thought I would add them here.

On Thursday, 2:00 - 3:00 pm, I will be signing copies of the 2014 ICE & FIRE CALENDAR, together with the amazing Gary Gianni, the artist. The signing will take place at Gary's booth, Booth #4902/ 4904 on the convention floor. First come first served, as usual... Gary has only 150 copies of the calendar, and I can only be there for an hour. Though this is a signing for the CALENDAR, not my books, I will autograph ONE (1) book for anyone who buys a copy of the calendar. As in other recent events, I will be doing only signatures, no inscriptions. Sorry, I'd love to, but time does not allow. Gary may or may not be doing inscriptions, don't know, that's his call.

Any conventions in NYC on the horizon, or did I miss out?
Mr Martin, first I'd like to thank you for your contributions to the realm of fantasy over the years. I have fond memories of watching Twilight Zone in the 80s as a kid. I think its great that you have this type of forum to communicate with fans and I admire how down to earth you are, with your impeccable sense of humor. I was never one to frequent conventions, but if you're going to be in the NYC area anytime soon, I'd love to attend! Also, I'm sorry if this might be off topic, but are there plans to make GoT/ASoIaF action figures, like the ones that came out for Lord of the Rings several years ago? I'd love to display The Night's Watch and Lannisters next to my vintage Star Wars figures. Take care!

I don't know about action figures, but they have bobblehead like figurines of a few characters. Though fat chance they'll make a Night's Watch one. THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE A SANSA STARK FIGURINE (something which infuriates me to no end.)

I've seen the bobble heads, don't like them too much. GoT figures like the ones Toy Biz made for LOTR would be awesome though.
