Back From LA

Just back from a week in LA.

I did Conan (the O'Brien, not the Cimmerian) and the Today Show, and taped a segment for a BBC special about Machiavelli... along with the usual dozen or so meeetings.

Also, while in town, swung by the Bookstar in Studio City and signed all their stock of my books, which was considerable. So if you're an Angeleno or just visiting LA, and want to snag an autographed copy of one of my novels, get yourself to Studio City while the supply lasts.

And now I'm back in the land of wolves and savage dust storms, digging out from under.

Fun times
Loved the Conan appearance. I was wanting to see your reaction to the YouTube videos and you did not disappoint.

I wonder how different the reactions have been from non-book readers who watched the show vs how book readers reacted way back when the book was first released.

Great job on Conan. Always a pleasure watching your interviews.

I recently read "Dying of the Light"... and my goodness was it fantastic. Really interesting to read the early "Sandor Clegane" in Bretan Braith. :) Like the Hound, he was one of my favourites. I like to think he maybe dug a grave *cough* for Dirk after they finally duelled ;)

Glad your trip went splendidly. Love Conan and seeing you on there was a delight.
Also I am excited most by hearing that WoW writing is going swiftly. I enjoy seeing you about and sometimes wish you would drive down to ABQ more often so I could buy you a beer but I am most excited for the book.

But seriously, would love to meet you, shake your hand, buy you a beer and then explain how i was hooked on your writing and how i passed around your GoT book to hook all my friends.

Thank You!
I was never an avid reader, but thanks to HBO turning your words into scripts I had to read your books. After season two, I purchased all five books and read them all. The Red Wedding was probably the most depressing event in the story. Since you portray the Stark family as honorable and just people, your writing makes you feel a tremendous amount of sorrow for their family.

Keep up the great work! I look forward to the final two? or three books!

I saw you on Conan... it was awesome. You beautifully illustrated what I've been trying to say to all those fans of the show who haven't read the books: "now you guys know how all us nerds felt when we read A Storm Of Swords like a decade ago!" :)

sorry, but what about Game of Thrones Season 3 Blu-ray release?

Probably next March or thereabouts.

busy busy, past, present and future
Peter Dinklage was just confirmed as the voice of one of the main characters for Bungie's new game Destiny. Does that have anything to do with your visit to them a couple of years ago? You said you couldn't talk about it... but if the cat is out of the bag...

Nothing at all.

Just wanted to say I'm thankful the surging popularity of ASoIaF helped get Tuf Voyaging back in print. I'm reading it now, and it's an absolute delight. I'll be recommending it to friends who only know you from ASoIaF, or that simply enjoy fun sci-fi. And any cat lover I meet will be greeted with "All cats have a touch of psi. This is well known."

I know what I'll bring if I ever make it to one of your book signings! Although it is a bit hilarious how the publisher tried to make the cloned animal and weapon shadows on the new cover look like the Iron Throne...

Edit: I finished the book. "Delightful" might not be the right word for the closing sections, but they're quite powerful. You surely know how to write an ending!

In Stride
Nice job on the talk show circuit. I would have a hard time keeping my ego in check if I ever became ridiculously famous, but you seem pretty grounded. The publicity must be hard to deal with (especially after a certain wedding). Way to take things in Stride.
