Sorry, Brazil

I was supposed to make an appearance yesterday at a fan festival in Brazil, taking questions from my Brazilian readers via the wonders of the internet.

Well, I did appear, kinda sorta:



Unfortunately, the internet proved less wonderous than promised. We were using Skype, and while everything was working fine on my end, down in Brazil the sound kept cutting in and out. I did get to say hello and field two questions, but I am not sure how much of my answers was actually heard. Every few seconds the proceedings would be halted yet again while they switched to a new computer, tried a new setting, fiddled with some knobs, or whatever.

We finally had to give up, defeated by technology.

Sorry, Brazil. One of these days I will have to try and make it down there in person.

I am sure Vince Gerardis filled in admirably in my electronic abscence. None of this GAME OF THRONES stuff would be happening if not for him.

You could come to Afghanistan. We've got a core group of fans here, and our university hosts interesting international speakers, including writers, on a semi-regular basis.

The setting is amazing for providing ideas and inspirations about corruption, "power to the strong" mentality, tribal conflict, prejudices, and other such interesting/depressing themes that fit perfectly with the grittier fantasy worlds.

And don't sorry about security. Kabul is safe enough. No bombings for a couple months now. The snow seems to be keeping the Taliban at bay, and they are mostly just targeting government and military anyway.
