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).

Wonderful signing in Warsaw. My publishers tell me that a thousand people passed through the line. Which is pretty amazing. And would explain why I'm so tired.

Polish fans seem very nice. Especially that very pretty young woman who kissed me on the cheek.

And GAME OF THRONES has been the #1 bestseller in Poland for two months running.

Great country.

Off to the con tomorrow...

Damn... I knew I would regret not coming to Traffic. Life and work are brutal, aren't they? But I am glad I could see you live in the cinema...
Is there any tiniest possibility I can gain your signature per mail? ;)

Hahaha, you're the man.
Too bad I couldn't be at the HBO interview or in the Traffic Club, but your visit just happened to be during my exam session :( Let's hope for more luck next time!

Oh God, I just realized that I have to read A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords and A Feast for Crows in the upcoming month. Sweet torture.
