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.

I do, actually. There was a time when I would walk the floor at comicon for hours, checking out the booths, visiting friends, buying books and comic books. No more. Now I need security.

But there are compensations, of course. The dumptrucks full of money are nice. All that green helps me Do Good, Fight Evil, and Have Fun. (But not dinner).

All in all, I actually do NOT want to be Greta Garbo, fwiw.

Please GRRM
George, is there any chance of you coming to Argentina? We love you, man. We'd love to have you over here. You're my hero.

P.S: Please don't kill Jaime.

Re: Please GRRM
One day, I'd love to, but it's not on my schedule for the next few years.

Re: Please GRRM
Great to here! Hope you enjoyed our lovely country. May it be ever to HBO should they want to film some Game of Thrones here.

Re: Please GRRM
Now we can all start wondering if you are talking about killing Ser Jaime or visiting Argentina :D

At home in Santa Fe, at least, are you able to go out peacefully to a diner?

Most of the time.

Comicon is different. The number of people attending comicon is twice the population of Santa Fe. And they're all geeks (me included), and they're all in the same room.

You are so deserving of those dump trucks of money! All the reading and watching and adoring of the world you created lately has given me much enjoyment.

Thank you so much!

You can get around it...
Wear a Chewbacca costume, and you can go wherever you like.

I've heard of other notable folks doing it to great success.

That's sad that people do not respect your privacy.. :-D wear a costume or disguise mayhaps that may throw some rabid fans off.. or have look a likes walking around so people don't know who is who is who is who!

Enjoy! Be safe and I will be watching it online!
