Today is the LAST DAY to earn the right to nominate for this year's Hugo Awards by joining either Chicon 7 (this year's worldcon) or LoneStarCon (next year's). Assuming you are not already a member.

You do not actually need to submit your ballot till March, but you need to JOIN today.

So sign up now and nominate, or forfeit forever your right to grouse and whine about the lousy list of nominees!

Just sayin'

Grousing and whining, that's something that's more in people's blood than an actual right ;) lol

Large Print?
Hello Mr. Martin. I got to see you on a panel at Marcon a few years back, which was awesome, but that's not why I'm leaving this. I'm a public librarian working in Outreach; we provide books and other materials to patrons who can't make it into the library. Most of our patrons are older and can only read large print. I'm wondering if you have any information on whether your Song of Ice and Fire books will be made available in large print at any time (I know they'd be massive, but we've had some pretty hefty books in that format). Many of our older readers would love to read you but can't deal with the small print in the books. I've been giving the audiobooks to our patrons who can listen to them, but I'd love to be able to share your books in print as well. Thanks for reading!

it is also my white dream (of spring:)
It is a wonderful idea. My mum is currently 78, her English is excellent (as contrasted with mine )-:) and she has been reading the series in original since the day she first encountered the “Blood of the Dragon“ novel somewhere back in the distant year of 1999. She recently went through 2 cataract operations but it doesn’t help too much. She is still reading a lot but the process is slower and I do not know how to say that but large print I am sure will bring her back the joy of reading ASOIAF books already written and those we are all waiting for. I wish this (large print) dream come true soon.

    Still working on that. When we have a final, I will share it.

    All the Wild Cards books under Tor have had absolutely stellar covers. I'd frame them and hang them on my wall if I could.

    Are all these examples digital artwork? It doesn't look like traditional oil on canvas. I miss the fantasy/sci-fi covers of the '70s and '80s. Even the paperbacks had amazing covers.

    Whatever anyone can get their hands on is, I suspect, the right answer.

    At the last party, it was an open bar with pretty much everything you can imagine on offer. There were some special drinks as…

    Any chance you could tell us who’s doing the cover art for Fire and Blood? And maybe when we can expect a glimpse of it. Thank you!
