Home Again

Back in Santa Fe.

The last flight was a little wiggy. We reached Albuquerque. circled for an hour, but were unable to land because of thunderstorms. Then got diverted to Lubbock (!) to refuel. (Sorry, Lubbockians, they would not let us off the plane, so I could not sign any of your books). Arrived in Albuquerque three hours late.

But I'm home now, and my, is there a lot to do.

Was very happy to see you in Seattle both this pass and back in the days of 'Feast'. Good fortune to you!

Three hours? Ouch!

Hope you can get some well-deserved rest before the next round of projects seize you. :)

Did you get your chile fix yet? Are you a red or green guy?

George, have you considered having ASOIAF printed by Easton Press? I'd get Subterranean Press version, but they're always gone so quickly.

Rumour has it that he already ixnayed that notion, but in case it wasn't out of the question, I'd beg for this one as well. Easton Press books are rather addictive, but they are slim pickings for fantasy material. :(

And thank you, George, for the great signing at Redwood City. Even my husband, who has not read the books or seen the show because he loves to torment me, thoroughly enjoyed your answers and the experience. (Yay for having the bar open! I've never seen such a civilized crowd!)

Well you're just in time NFLwise. There was about an offseason's worth of transactions last week but to summarize:

Plax is out of jail and with Sexy Rexy instead of Coughlin
Osi Umeniora is being a malcontent and trying to get traded out of the Giants
The Eagles are picking up anyone and everyone they can get their hands on, I think I just heard they signed Conan Stevens to a deal after being impressed with his work at the Hand's Tournament dubbing him The Mountain that Sacks
And Bill Belichick traded for two questionable resurrection projects in Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth

Glad you got home safely!! The storm was pretty crazy here in ABQ last night but we sure needed the rain. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

*heh* I wonder how long it will take the Furry Overlords to forgive you?

Glad to hear that you're safe back home. This was a whirlwind tour and you deserve to rest up! I have some photos to send you later tonight from San Diego. Thank you so much for making me dream come true and then some. lol!

Joseph-Beth Lexington, Ky
Just wanted to thank you for coming out to Lexington to deface some books. This was the first book signing I've ever attended and it was a fantastic experience! I'm not sure, but I may have been the only one who pleaded for the life of the great Blackfish of Riverrun, as I heard many pleas for Arya, Jon, etc. And hopefully you forgive my insolence of being a Dallas Cowboys fan, as I have thanked the gods that, at least, you aren't a Patriots fan!

Mr. Martin, this is a bit off topic from your post, but I have a question for you! Are you familiar with a website called Reddit? You have a huge fanbase on that site. Would you be willing to do an AMA. It's where you allow users to ask you anything and you can answer whatever you'd like. We'd really appreciate it!

They are actually called Lubbockites, but plenty of us Red Raiders would have loved to meet you also.

Yeah, as soon as I stumble off a plane in Albuquerquerquerque it's not 20 minutes til I'm eating green chile cheeseburgers @ Rex's.
