Coming to Comicon

I'm off to San Diego tomorrow morning, for comicon.

Tickets have been sold out for months, alas. But for you lucky 150,000 who will be lucky enough to get in, here's my current schedule of signings, panels, and other public events.


10:00 am - 12 noon Daniel Abraham and I will be signing copies of the FEVRE DREAM graphic novel at the Avatar booth (#2701),

12 noon - 1:00 pm EPIC FANTASY panel, rm 6A

1:30pm - 2:30 pm The panelists from Epic Fantasy will be signing in autograph area AA1

3:00pm - 4:00 pm The GAME OF THRONES panel, an hour long discussion of the HB0 series with showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and actors Lena Headey (Cersei), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime). I'll be moderating.

4:30pm - 5:45pm The GAME OF THRONES cast and I will be signing posters at the Warner Brothers booth #4545.


10:00 am - 11:00 am I will be signing copies of the DOORWAYS graphic novel at the IDW
booth (#2643)

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm John Picacio and I will be signing copies of the 2012 Ice & Fire calendar in the autograph area, AA 21 I will also be signing A DANCE WITH DRAGONS and my other Ice & Fire books during this appearance.


1:00 pm - 3:00 pm I will be signing A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, the other Ice & Fire books, and anything else you care to bring in the autograph area, AA 18.

5:00pm - 6:00 pm Tor Books will be giving away complimentary copies of INSIDE STRAIGHT at their booth, and I'll be on hand to sign them, along with Melinda Snodgrass, Daniel Abraham, Carrie Vaughn, and other members of the Wild Cards crew. We'll also be glad to deface FORT FREAK and any other Wild Cards books you care to present to us.


10:30 am - 11:30 am WILD CARDS panel. Half a dozen of your favorite Wild Cards writers will assemble to talk about the past, present, and future of the long-running shared world series in the field.

12:00 noon - 1:00 pm The Wild Card panelists will adjourn to AA1 to sign your books.

Later that afternoon, I will heading over to Mysterious Galaxy for my signing there, but that's offsite, and not an official part of the SDCC schedule.

A couple of notes about the signings:
1) as on my tour, I will be autographing your books, but I won't be able to inscribe or personalize them (unless by some chance you catch me at a slow time when there's no line),
2) many of these signings are keyed to particular books and projects. At Avatar, I'll be signing FEVRE DREAM, at IDW it will be DOORWAYS, for Tor WILD CARDS. The place to get your DANCE WITH DRAGONS signed is at the big general signings on Friday and Saturday. We've scheduled me for four hours of signing between those two days... so please, respect my other publishers and DO NOT ask me to sign your Ice & Fire books at the booth signings. Those are meant to promote my other projects.

George would it read funny if I read a Feast Chapter and then ADWD Chapter???

I am on my re-read of the whole series (currently halfway through Clash. I already own A Dance with Dragons. When I get to Feast. Would it read fairly smoothly if I went a chapter of Feast and then a chapter of Dance and so on? I know Dance "catches up at some point, but I am wondering if that would read in a somewhat chronilogical way? or do you believe it would be a better experience just to read Feast and then backtrack in time with other characters in Dance?

Let me know. Thanks!

Not Safe For Work should be a more common occurence
You are a very busy man sir, but this is good busy! The last pic is priceless! Good to see you enjoying yourself! Though you are off the market, hopefully, with your significant other's understanding, may you sign many more of those for the years to come!

Just a quick question, are Sahara Knite, Sibel Kekili and Esme Bianco going to be in the next season, or was that a one off (especially for Ms. Knite) for them? I liked Sibel Kekili and Esme Bianco, not only because they are gorgeous, but their talent is quite apparent. They took small roles, in Ms. Kekili's case, or those that didn't even exist, in the case of Esme Bianco, and managed to bring to life some unforgettable characters. I hope D&D consider giving them some scree time on the next season!

Your book is THE PERFECT gift.
Dear Mr. Martin,
I don't know how else to reach you, but I was wondering if it was possible for me to ask of you a favor?
It is my best friends' birthday coming up, and I thought the perfect gift for him would be an autographed copy of your book, A Game of Thrones.
We made it a habit to watch every HBO episode together while he is stationed in Hawaii, and I live in Minnesota.

If this is at all possible, please, I would be honored, and willing to pay all postage and for the book as well.

If you could, reply to my e-mail;

and I can give you my address.
His birthday is August 5th.

Thank you so much for writing and creating great works. You are an inspiration to many.

Game of Thrones panel
I sat in line for over three hours just to see the Game of Thrones panel at comic con. And it was worth it. The panel was fantastic and all the actors seemed like they were having a good time too. And if you get the chance to see Nicolaj again, tell him he has a wonderful nose!

Best Seller Lists
George is only the second author this year to become what I'm calling "The Mega Sweepers". A Dance with Dragons has hit #1 on all four major NYT Best Seller lists. Hardback, eBook, Combined eBook/Paper, Combined Paper. But then he also hit #1 this week on the Mass Market list with A Game of Thrones, its third time at #1. The only other author who has done that this year is James Patterson, and there's debate that James doesn't write his own books anymore. Certainly not by himself.

So far in 2011, the only books that have swept the four big lists are the following:

A Dance With Dragons (No surprise here)
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich
The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly
Tick Tock by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

The eBook lists and combined lists are new and were introduced in February of 2011.

Congrats, George, and so far I love The Dance. I'm 300 pages into it and it's fabulous.

Book signing in Lexington
I will be driving 7 hours to get to the book signing in Lexington and was wondering; how long are the lines usually as far as a timeline? If anyone could please give me some idea I would like to know what time I should try to get there. TIA

And thanks for everything George!
