In Warsaw

I'm in Warsaw. Spent the morning doing interviews and a big press conference. Now I'm about to leave for a signing at the Traffic Club, whioh is actually a bookstore.

Getting here was somewhat of an ordeal. Our flight from Abluquerque to Chicago was an hour late, which resulted in us missing our connection, and the direct flight that would have gotten us into Poland yesetdray morning. Instead we had to cool our heels half a day in O'Hare and then go by way of London, with a change of planes in Heathrow. We got into Warsaw yesetrday evening instead, and had to go straight to a big HBO interview at a movie complex. There were several hundred fans there, an amazing turnout. Alas, I was too exhausted to sign books and had to go get some sleep... but I am about to make up for that at the Traffic Club.

Anyway, I'm fine (if tired) and glad to be here. (But my assistant Ty is sick as a dog. We're hoping he'll be better by tomorrow, when we leave Warsaw for the con in Ndiza).

Have a nice time.
It strikes me you came here via London, so you've sort of repeated the route of Polish fighters during the Second World war, some of them were parachuted from the airplanes and landed in the terrotory occupied by Nazies, so your journey was rather less interesting and tiring compared to those.

And while I'm here let me say your books have many fans in Russia (and now the series is watched by many people too)

Travel
Alas, the process of traveling these days is not easy nor pleasurable. There are so many places I want to go, then I realize the hassle of getting there and get so turned off. Best wishes to Ty, not fun either, to be sick abroad.

next time you're stranded in Chicago, you should let me know. I'd run some deep dish pizza out to you at the airport.

Wow, sounds like a rough trip! Hope Ty is feeling better soon.

I have to ask. How has Ty handled becoming a celeb? What a dream job!!!

Try some dreamwine or milk of the poppy. You'll feel better tomorrow.

Greetings from Warsaw
I was on this HBO interview in Warsaw. You're awesome and you talked with a lot of sense (even without sleep). I love story about "this guy was on the cover of book" and we would really sacrifice our interviewer for answer to question how will it all end ;)
Thanks for everything :))

Nidzica
Hello, I'm a fan from Romania, I'll be in Warsaw from 16.06 for a medical meeting, but on friday morning I'll take a bus to Nidzica and hope to see you at the con. I hope you'll be signing books, because I will have with me the first romanian hardcover edition of "Game of thrones" and hope for an autograph. And at 15.00 I have to leave for Warsaw and it will be a honor to have a books signed.
Hope to see you well in Nidzica.

We really do appreciate that George managed to make it for the HBO interview (straight from the airport). I was lucky enough to get a handshake.

The crowd at Traffic Club today was (still is?) also massive. I got there, had my book signed and just came back home, but I am sure that George is still there signing...

Thanks for coming George and enjoy the con in Nidzica!!!

Enjoy your trip
Mr. Martin,

Enjoy your trip to Poland. I'm sure you've heard about the remarkable reactions to Episode 9 of the series. It's a testament to your story telling and HBO's adaption that even a reader of your work was still so emotionally impacted by the final scene of the episode.

Hope Ty recovers swiftly and you get some down time for yourself.

Thanks for signing and kind words.
Though my wife said she wouldn't read the books, she can't resist your personal encouragement.
