Next Sunday at the Jean Cocteau

If you're going to be in Santa Fe a week from tomorrow -- or anywhere in the Land of Enchantment, really -- do swing by the Jean Cocteau Cinema.

We've got not one but two very special events planned for Sunday, July 24.

First up, at 2:00 in the afternoon, will be a Wild Cards Author Event, followed by a signing. Yes, most of the Usual Suspects will be on hand, the motley crew of New Mexico writers who started the series some thirty years ago, but they'll be joined by some Wild Carders, new and old, who are coming in from afar to join us. Right now we have some nineteen (yes, I said 19!) writers scheduled to take part... from Chicago, from Denver, from New Hampshire, from Texas, from California, from Kentucky. Come by and meet them all! And get your books signed... not only your Wild Cards books (though we expect to have all the volumes presently in print on offer), but also some of the other great novels by the participating writers.



The format of this one should be fun. Melinda Snodgrass will be hosting, interviewing each of our guests in turn. But we'll be doing this "in universe," so she won't be interviewing the writers, she'll be interviewing their characters. And Weeds knows where all the bodies are buried, so I expect this to be a hoot and a half.

And that's just the afternoon event.

Come evening, we'll be putting Melinda to work again, with a very special screening of CHAOS ON THE BRIDGE, William Shatner's tell-all documentary about the rocky beginnings of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.

Melinda knows where the bodies are buried on the Enterprise as well; she was there, and she was one of the insiders that Shatner interviewed for the documentary. She will be hosting the screening, and answering questions afterwards... and if that was not enough, she's arranged for DAVID GERROLD to join us as well, via the wonders of Skype.

It should be quite a Sunday. Be there. I will.

Hey GRRM, I just wanted to tell that I ordered some books from Brazil, and they arrived very fast. This was a great service, please keep the international orders going. Thanks a lot.

wild cards event
That Wild Cards event sounds so awesome! But Santa Fe is outside my travel budget. Any chance it might be recorded and posted somewhere online?

Sounds like lots of fun, I won't be able to make it as I'm in Florida but I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll all sign some extra copies for us collectors to order. Have fun! Xoxo

I need to get out of North Jersey and head back to the southwest. Your theatre has been added to my "long list of things in the SW I need to go back and see"

from a fan
Hi George. I noticed you read these comments so I came here to reach you. Sorry for going off topic, and sorry for the english-as-a-second-language-like mistakes.
I'm a simple fan from Argentina, I started reading asoiaf in 2011. Never watched the series. I've just finished Dance for the 8th time, and I wanted to share something with you. As I was reading the final sentence, I imagined I had a copy of Winds on my lap, ready to be read, and I literally got goosebumps of joy. I can't describe how happy it makes me to know that it's on the way.
Thank you, George. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for writing asoiaf. Thank you!!

A fan.-

Re: from a fan
I appreciate the kind words...

But, really, we need people to stay on topic in these comments.

What a Show!
STNG what a show! And one I became a fan of by accident. I used to sneer at lovers at ST. And then I was stuck at home one evening, with nothing to do and decided to just watch an episode of STNG and thought, this is not bad....ended up watching re-runs and was hooked. The show was massively popular up here in Canada. I tried to get tickets to see the final episode at the Skydome but it was 'sold out'. But truly the show was creativity at its' best.
