Coming to San Diego

The next convention on my calendar is the San Diego Comicon.

My dance card is already almost full. Yes, there will be a GAME OF THRONES panel, and I'll be on it. It is scheduled for Friday, July 19, 2:50 to 3:45, in Hall H To be followed by an autographing at the WB booth. Of course, I'll be joined on the panel by half a dozen cast members (no, don't know which ones yet) and David and Dan.

I will also be doing a signing on Saturday, July 20, from 11:00am to noon, in the official autograph area. That one is for Bantam.

Working on two more signings: one for Avatar Comics, which will be launching their new comic of THE SKIN TRADE (based on my novella, scripted by Daniel Abraham) at the con, and one with the marvelous Gary Gianni, the artist for the 2014 ICE & FIRE calendar, which will debut in San Diego. Details on those when I have 'em.

I am not on any panels besides the one for GAME OF THRONES, nor will I be doing any readings (come to worldcon for that), but there should be plenty of chances for anyone who wants me to deface their books, maps, games, videotapes, or body parts with my illegible scrawl. But PLEASE, if you want my autograph, come to one of these four signings. Don't stop me in the hotel lobby or on the street or in a restaurant when I am trying to have dinner.


I now have the details on another of my signings, so I thought I would add them here.

On Thursday, 2:00 - 3:00 pm, I will be signing copies of the 2014 ICE & FIRE CALENDAR, together with the amazing Gary Gianni, the artist. The signing will take place at Gary's booth, Booth #4902/ 4904 on the convention floor. First come first served, as usual... Gary has only 150 copies of the calendar, and I can only be there for an hour. Though this is a signing for the CALENDAR, not my books, I will autograph ONE (1) book for anyone who buys a copy of the calendar. As in other recent events, I will be doing only signatures, no inscriptions. Sorry, I'd love to, but time does not allow. Gary may or may not be doing inscriptions, don't know, that's his call.

Quiet dinner - leave the Gaslamp
While people should have manners, you may consider leaving Gaslamp for dinner if you want peace and quiet. There are great spots close to the area in Hillcrest and Kensington that will be Comic Con free. Then again, you may get the more casual fans who will just stop by to berate you for the Red Wedding...

Hopefully I'll make it by a signing, since I will have a couple young kids with me who will have no interest in the panel!

Mr. George, I'm a game designer and I want you to be in my MMORPG history, I ask you also make the story of my game, would be a more than an honor.

I am not quite sure what you are asking. But in any case, this is the wrong venue to ask it. Email my assistant Ty at grrmbooks@gmail.com and let him know what you're proposing, and we'll consider it.

In any case, good luck with your game.

Have a great time in San Diego!

I just can't get myself to CCSD no matter how many people offer me free tickets. See you in San Antonio though!

I just want to say I had the honor of attending a reading you did at the (now defunct, alas!) west side Borders in Madison, WI. It was for the release of A Feast For Crows. You were so engaging I became a fan right then. I relish the experience.
Jul. 5th, 2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Very kind of you.

We miss Borders here in Santa Fe. With them gone (they had two big stores here), the only bookstore in town with a decent SF and fantasy section is Hastings, and they're mainly a music store. The nearest B&N is an hour away in Albuquerque.

security? sheesh
Do you at least get to have them wear black suits and shades and talk to their cufflinks?

Happy Fourth!

Too quiet...
The Jets have been out of the headlines for almost a month now (Sanchez and his dance themed video sequel to the Buttfumble is the last cringe inducer that I can think of), while the Patriots have been in them. That violates several intergalactic offseason football laws.

Is this... is this really happening?

I hope there will be a video for us international fans.
On another note, there was a few days ago the Palio of Siena and I don't know why but I could totally see that happening in Westeros or maybe more in one of the Free Cities like Braavos. I don't know if you heard about it or watched some videos on youtube.

Since you are not on the roster for DragonCon which is close to me, and I am not able to attend there, is there a good way to send a fan gift to you? Is the fan mail address in Santa Fe someplace where you would actually receive what I plan to send you? I know you must get tons of mail and gifts, but what I want to send is totally unique, I can assure you, as a thank you.
Jul. 7th, 2013 01:13 am (UTC)
That's very kind, but really, you don't need to send me gifts.

Having you read and enjoy my books is gift enough.

But yes, the address in Santa Fe is THE address.

I can´t believe it :D
oh my god I just realised you´re coming to switzerland next year!
I live in Germany and that´s the closest thing you´re coming the next time, I suppose : )?
Have you ever been to Germany or Switzerland before? I hope you will enjoy your stay, even though it´s still some time left till you're visiting us over here :)
One thing I would recommend when you´re here is to order a good, classic bavarian beer (even though it's Switzerland, I´m pretty sure they sell bavarian beer, the swiss know very well we germans, especially bavarians, got the better breweries ;D)

You´ve got lots of fans over here, who love and adore you and your books, and we're all looking forward to see you :D

Kind Regards

P.S: I've got the Stark Blood in my veins for real! My Nana is a born Stark. Tried to explain her how epic that fact is, unfortunately she didn´t get the point in it : )

P.P.S: Sansa is my most beloved charakter like...ever <3

Re: I can´t believe it :D
I spent a month in Germany in 2000. (Seems like last week).

I have never been to Switzerland before.

Capclave 2013 in Washington, DC

I'll be attending this year's Capclave in Washington, DC, which I see that you will be the "Author Guest of Honor." Will you be signing books there? Even if you aren't, I do promise not to bother you if I happen to see you at the hotel.

Re: Capclave 2013 in Washington, DC
Yes, I do signings at every con I attend. Sometimes more than one.

I'll be waiting to see you at Sydney Opera House in November...along with Tyrion. :P

Do me a favour and make sure that whores are mentioned at least three times in that convention. :P

Would signing a kindle be out of the question? I'm one of those people...
