Skins for Capclave

October is going to be an absolutely insane month for me.  I have so many things coming out, even I can't keep track of them all.

But I've just gotten the green light to announce one of the coolest.

Those of you who check out my Appearances list regularly know that I'll flying to Washington DC in a few weeks, to be Guest of Honor at Capclave.  Well, as it happens, WSFA Press likes to release a "Capclave book" every year, to honor the con's GOH.

This year, that book will be a new collector's edition of my novella "The Skin Trade" (a World Fantasy Award winner, donchaknow), illustrated by the amazing award-winning artist RICK BERRY.  You can check out the details here:

http://www.wsfapressbooks.org/?wpsc-product=the-skin-trade

CapClave attendees will get first crack at this book, after which unsold copies will be offered to the general public.  This illustrated SKIN TRADE will be limited to 1000 copies -- 500 signed by me and Rick, and 500 unsigned.  (Must remember to bring my pen to Washington).

So add THE SKIN TRADE to the list of stuff I have coming out next month, along with OLD MARS, MEATHOUSE MAN, THE DANCE WITH DRAGONS paperbacks, and THE WIT AND WISDOM OF TYRION LANNISTER.

About THE WIT AND WISDOM OF TYRION LANNISTER
What kind of book will it be THE WIT AND WISDOM OF TYRION LANNISTER? Short one, only a few pages, most of all illustrations, or longer with an analysis of the character?

Thanks!

This is really cool!
Does that mean if I pre-order from WSFA and have it sent to Australia (signed copy) I'm not guaranteed a signed copy if it sells out? Because the option is available for me to purchase a signed copy and your blog states that CapClave attendees get the first crack at the 500 signed copies.

Hooray
Those paperbacks are indeed a marvelous idea. Finally a way to read without heaving those heavy hardcovers up. Keep them coming!
Mr. Martin, I can't count all the times I've written a comment here.
I even wrote a fan-letter to you, but I doubt you've ever actually received it. It is my biggest wish to visit you in Santa Fe, but I am only 15, from germany and I can't just simply catch the next airplane. And hey, I'll even consider to bring some german specialties ~ nom nom nom! Please Mr. Martin, this means really a lot to me. Respond, please.


P.S. Hodor!

Re: Hooray
Next year you'll be 16 - do you think you migh be able to convince a parent to take you to the WorldCon, LonCon 3 for a day or more? I don't think they've announced the single day rates yet. You can google the name of the con or follow links from George's appearances page on his web site. I'm writing this on my iPad and can't do links easily.

Whenever anyone has a question about where George is going to appear check the website listings. We're now booking 2018-2019 appearances. You can always count on us going to WorldCons, wherever they may be.

Will you be signing at Capclave?
I have a piece of Game of Thrones comic book original art that I've been wanting to get your autograph on for some time. At Capclave you'll be within a three hour drive. I'm sure it would be a fun trip anyway, but my primary purpose would be to get this page signed.

Can't Wait
Can't wait for the Wit and Wisdom... although after first reading the announcement I got mixed up telling someone about the Christmas Memories of Tyrion Lanister... That could be an interesting read too. About how he had to dress as an elf...

Not a blog
Looking forward to some of the up coming material that will be released. Really looking forward to Dangerous Women and the dance sample chater.

That being said Happy Name Day, hope your year will be as full and rewarding as the past few have been. Thanks again for your material and accessibility.

Not a Subject
Just read Not A Blog rules, I'm kinda new here.
Just finished The Tales of Dunk & Egg after reading ADWD.
This could novella could be a nice change of universe as I await to come back to Westeros.
Going to get off topic now but, still, happy nameday Mr. Martin! :)
Regards from Brazil.

Happy nameday
:) thanks for everything you've given, and good luck on your continued writing. I know you have a ton on your plate and people are desperately clammering for WoW... but take your time and always be proud of what you done and how many lives you've improved.
