Brett Says Goodbye

So Brett Favre is retiring.

A sad day for the cheeseheads... and for football fans everywhere, no matter what team they root for. Brett was a class act, and one of the all time greats at his position. He will be missed. A great, great career.

And just think. If it hadn't been for those damned Atlanta Falcons, he would have been a Jet. Sigh. "Broadway Brett." Okay, okay, almost only counts in horseshoes and grenades, but a boy can dream.

Goodbye, Brett.

Sold Out

Well, I told you to get your copy of the Subterranean Press signed, numbered, limited edition of FEVRE DREAM before they were all gone. I hope you listened.

Bill Schafer of SubPress has just informed me that FEVRE DREAM is now sold out.

They still have copies of their deluxe illustrated edition of HUNTER'S RUN, signed by all three authors, but those too are going fast. If you want one, this would be a good time to visit the Subterranean website, before Ramon and Maneck follow Abner and Joshua down the river.


And Speaking of Subterranean...

... I am pleased to be able to announce that they have just signed up artist Marc Fishman to illustrate their deluxe limited edition of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS.

Don't know Fishman's work? Go to and check it out. He's amazing, and it will be a real thrill to work with him.

I've actually had a Fishman cover once before. His painting "The Return of the King" (which can be seen on the website) was used by my German publishers as the cover for one of their volumes of A FEAST FOR CROWS. A gorgeous painting... but of course it has nothing to do with my books, Goldmann just plucked it out of their Big Box o' Fantasy Covers and decided it was close enough. It's the best of the covers I've gotten on my German paperbacks, beyond a doubt, but all the same I'm jazzed to know that this time Marc will actually be painting the characters, scenes, and settings from my book.

If you'd like to get in the queue to snag a copy of the illustrated DANCE, it is never too late to drop by the SubPress website and place your order.
