Skins for Capclave

Spain

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.

Will the A Dance With Dragons paperback have a sample chapter from TWOW that's different from the ones you've released so far?

Happy Name Day George.

I'm looking forward to Meathouse Man. I've already read it, but it should be really messed up with pictures to go with all the disturbing things that happen in it.

Happy Birthday to Us
Happy Birthday George!

Cheers from Brazil!

It's my 25th birthday and it is an honor to share it with you.
I am one of your new fans, discovering your work only 3 years ago, but it blew me away so much that I jumped head on.

Nowadays I've been spending so much time reading about words and phrases to grasp meanings and clues that it can be used as grounds to put me on a straight jacket.
Well, if reading and rereading passages on books was a crime we would have to arrest all priests in the world.

I guess what has drawn me so much was the prose and amount of detail you put into it. I also like how you switch archtypes and play around with exterior and interior perceptions.

I really hope to write something good one day.

Brazil isn't big on local authors and we only have lame conventions, but eventually something must give on this subject.

I'm not really used to sending fanmail, but since its our birthday I thought it would be nice.

*lifts glass*

Here is to us, dreamers! Let those born in September always hold a strong gaze upon the fields of imagination!

Cheers,
Hans Erik

at the end of book IV
I love your books. They are exciting and I'm unable to put down and flew through the first IV and intend to keep going. The amount of detail combined with imagination and research of historical eras make it more fascinating. Got to get back to book IV before my library loan ends.

Thank you for inspiring me!

Excited for Capclave
George,
I have always been a sci-fi fan (since Star Wars) and once I saw GOT on HBO I bought all the Ice and Fire story and have been all over westors since. Your writing has inspired me to write and explore my own new worlds and characters. I live only a few miles from the Capclave and look forward to attending and getting my hands on Skin Trade. Is there any time line or schedule of events for the convention. I have been looking everywhere and can't find it. Anyways thanks and I look forward to the convention. Happy birthday!
