Renovation Schedule

It seems as though San Diego Comicon and my nine-city book tour just ended yesterday, and yet here comes worldcon, bearing down on me like a wedge of charging knights.

As I said at every one of my tour appearances, the BEST place to meet your favorite writers (including me, if I'm one of them) is not at a bookstore signing, but at a con. And there's no con like worldcon. Yes, comicon is bigger. So is Gencon, Dragoncon, and many more. But worldcon is the source from whence they all sprang, the granddaddy of them all, and still the center of the SF/ fantasy universe.

And hey, they give the HUGOs there!

Here's my schedule for Reno:

THURSDAY, August 18
1:00 pm A reading, from THE WINDS OF WINTER (AO1+6, RSCC)
3:00 pm autographing (Hall 2, RSCC)

FRIDAY August 19
11:00 am The Art of Ice & Fire, with John Picacio and Martina Pilcerova

SATURDAY August 20
11:00 am - 1:00 pm "The Pointy End" - a special screening of my episode from
the first season of the HBO series, with commentary

4:00 pm The Ethics of Adaptation, a debate/ dialogue w/ Melinda Snodgrass

8:00 pm HUGO AWARDS (Peppermill, Tuscany Ballroom) I will be presenting.

SUNDAY August 21

12:00 noon WILD CARDS panel (Ao1+6, RSCC)
1:00 pm autographing (Hall 2, RSCC)

Of course, the daytime programming is only a small part of what worldcon is all about. The other part is the room parties. And yes, I'll be hitting those as well, partying every night -- and you can expect that the Brotherhood Without Banners will once again throw the best, most kickass party at the con, as they've done for most of the past decade.

Unlike comicon, worldcon does not sell out. Full memberships and day passes will be available at the door. All you need do to attend is make it to Reno.

See you in Reno!

A reading from The Winds of Winter?
I hope this will be appearing in your sample chapter shortly after the Con.

(serious question: Are you currently working on book 6, or is on the back burner while you were finishing up your book signing tour and recent and future cons? Is it too early to ask for a page count?)

The worst part of your books Mr. Martin, is that they end... and I am going through serious Dance withdrawal. If it is anything like Feast withdrawal... it will last 2-3 years (followed by 2-3 years of anticipation). So anything like that helps (sample chapters, interviews, etc.)

The best part about waiting for Winds, is that at least every year, for 3 months or so, I have the HBO series to tide me over.
