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.


Of course, there are certain things I am always willing to sign.

Do you, sir, or anyone who happens to read my comment, know where I could find the 2009 and 2011 calendars besides Amazon?

We should have a small supply of the 2011 calendars on sale at San Diego. But get to the Random House booth early, they don't last long.

The 2009 calendar is another story. None for sale anywhere I know.

Ah, that's too bad. I thought the 2009 one was especially beautiful. Perhaps I can find someone with a used version who is willing to give it up, though it won't come cheap. And as I am unfortunately unable to make it to Comic-Con (much as I want to) I guess I'll have to do the same for the 2011 one. Alas. But thank you!

2011 calendar
For the 2011 calendar, I know that it was available through Diamond distributors, so if you go to your local comic book shop they might still be able to order you a copy (that's where I'm getting mine)

Re: 2011 calendar
Okay, thanks, I'll give that a try!

Re: 2011 calendar
Ah, apparently not. I checked with my comic books store but he said he couldn't get it. Bah. Thanks anyway.

Dabel bros 2009 calendar
The 2009 calendar had certain... problems. It is indeed a collector's item now as it was practically useless, unless you preserved it and for 2015. Unfortunately I only have one, sealed and entombed until 2015 when I may or may not hang it up, otherwise I'd offer to sell you a copy. It is indeed quite beautiful and certainly frame worthy.

I almost ruined my calendar when my basement flooded and a lot of my other collectibles suffered water damage. Luckily, the calendar was in one of the higher safes off the floor.

Re: Dabel bros 2009 calendar
The fact that I could still use it in the future makes me want to buy it even more! Hmm...where does one find collector's items, do you know?

I'm glad yours wasn't ruined! My basement flooded once as well and my books and photographs weren't so lucky. :(

If you wouldn't mind, could you take a look at your calendar and see who the publisher/maker/distributor is? Perhaps I could call them and get a copy from them directly? =/

Re: Dabel bros 2009 calendar
Dabel Brothers were the publisher. They screwed the pooch, but what's funny is the calendar is now a genuine collector's piece due to all the problems surrounding it. Lot of people were really pissed at the time, but I bet many of them regret throwing out their calendars now.

Good luck with getting in touch with any customer support from Dabel. In my experience they haven't been very professional and kinda live in a bubble of their own self importance.

Anyway, George explains what happened here:
