In London

Left Malta today for a quick visit to London and my British publishers.

The shoot is still going well.

I'd post more, but I'm in serious need of sleep.

It's uncomfortably cold here already, I hope you packed some warm clothes.

Sorry you missed Guy Fawkes day.

Why now?
Just curious as to why you have been observing this particular period of shooting? Does it have anything to do with the episode you wrote the script for?

Enjoy your sleep.

Peter is a tremendous actor, but much too handsome to play Tyrion, will they be using make up to give us a proper Imp?

My mood: Intrigued
A quick visit to your publisher, huh? I'm pretty sure that doesn't mean what I hope it means.

But I guess we will see in the morning.

You must get some serious jet lag! I hope you'll enjoy some of your time at these places, at least!

When you get home..
George...when you get back Stateside, make sure you take a few days off and relax, yeah? I think it's time. :)

Wow, you have a very busy life, George, tomorrow you could be in South Africa (Or in Westeros...)

Hi George, I know there's nothing on your appearances page about it but if you decide to do a signing whilst in London or drop into Forbidden Planet or something, please let me know as it would be great to meet you and get some books signed. It's not often your favourite author's in town :)

Re: London
No time for that, sorry.

Re: London
Ok no problem. I imagine you can't wait to get home after all the travelling you been doing :)

You'll have to come back for a longer visit next time you get the chance though.

good luck with the shoot!

I'm glad ASOIF given the opportunity to travel and see new places and so therefore the output delay of the book. I like feast of crows because it develops over the history and the issue of the three queens is very interesting. Amazing chapters of Dorne and iron men. I know his novel for only 2 months and I loved it. My question is if you know the end of his story or is improvising? I also like dying of the light. I'm not sure of the final but I think I imagine the worst right? sorry for my english.

Re: to george
Dying of the Light was a very cool read. That book really had me thinking.. I kept going back to it in my thoughts for weeks. I think it is safe to assume an unhappy ending... the story of Worlorn was a fairly grim tale.

If you like Dying of the Light I would suggest picking up Fevre Dream. Another great story by Mr Martin. Entirely different from Dying of the light to the same degree that Dying of the Light was different from ASOIAF.

Though the writing style of Martin is fairly similar in all his works I still find it amazing to realize that they are the same author. The tone and flavor of his books are so entirely different from eachother.

To Mr. Martin, from a longtime fan.
I just wanted to take a moment to stop by and say that your constant traveling and work really impress me. You obviously work very hard on your myriad projects, and we as readers and viewers are lucky to have you. I hope you get the chance to take a well-earned break soon. Take care and good luck to you!

on the flight
Will you be reading Towers of Midnight on the flight home?

The Greyjoys
Saw you in our boardroom today, which was amazing. Wanted to ask about the Greyjoys, but I didn't want to interrupt any of the procession...

Will they be in the HBO series, and are they possibly nuanced a bit by vikings (in the books)?

Without a K.

I'm glad you made it to London safe! But I'll be even happier when you make it back stateside! I've been hankering for some more Wild Cards action and will feel a lot better once you can get back and get plugged in to that! Need my fix badly and would love to get news of a new Wild Cards book next spring. It'd make for a great christmas present (hint, hint!)

Sorry to hear you're so wiped out...
You deserve a vacation!
Nov. 9th, 2010 02:11 am (UTC)
Minnesota trip comming up as well...
I hope when you are done with your trip to Minnesota, you will have some time to rest (and by rest, I selfishly mean working non-stop on knocking down Kong...and then some real rest).

Hey George! It must be cool to travel everywhere on the backs of such a great story.

So, this is sort of tangentially related to the series, and not meant to be one of the complaints: doesn't the show's schedule give you only five years to get out Dance and Winds, and six to get out Dream? If you're doing a season of TV for each book, it seems like you would at least have to release the books concurrently.

Any idea? Or are you crossing that bridge once you're over Dance?
