Howard, Gardner, and George Show



Warning: contains risqué anecdotes and off-color stories that may offend some.

I should also mention that I had a senior moment during the panel, when I mentioned that I won my first Hugo in 1985 and appeared on my first panel in 1986.  While the relation between those two events is correct, the dates aren't.  I misplaced a decade there.  I actually won my first Hugo in 1975, and appeared on my first panel later that same year (at the same con where the trophy was presented to me).

Galaxy Magazine, is that still around? Funny the things you leave behind when school and work and life gets in the way. I'm sure I've got an old collection of those somewhere falling apart.....

"The air was filled with quarters!"LMFAO That is classic.
I attended a San Diego comicon in 1988 just after I had gotten out of the service. I think the big deal that year was Ghostbusters along with a sea of comic books. On the schedule, was a tribute to Robert Heinlein, which got me very excited as I was (and still am) a big fan of the Dean. Then I get to the panel only to find out it was a MEMORIAL tribute! Apparently the man had died! I sat there bummed for the whole panel.
Later I was cheered up by purchasing X-men 101 which is the emergence of Phoenix. I saw alot of comics there I wanted but didn't have the money at the time. Of course, SDCC has gotten huge over time, but I wanted to share that Woody Allen-esque experience with you. Loved this video! Hope to see you at a Comicon soon! :-)

Happens to all of us George. I find as I get older my wind works like an older car. It will get me there eventually just needs longer to warm up and won't necessarily make the trip as fast as it used to! :)

This is only necessary for people who've never met Gardner,

South Park Parody
Dear Mr. Martin,
I'm not sure if you've been made aware of this, but A Song of Ice and Fire has been made the focus of a South Park 2-part parody that debuted last Wednesday and finishes tomorrow during their normal new-episode timeslot. Though some of the satire is more pointed towards the HBO series, they do seem to be using your series as the template. It seems that the creators of the show, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, are fans of your work, and unlike many of their targets on the show, they do seem to respect your work as well. Just thought you should know while you're on the road trip.

P.S.: I read the sample chapter of Winds of Winter in the Dance with Dragons paperback and loved it. Can't wait for the Battle of Mehreen.

Great Panel
I spent about 8 min looking up those Hugo Trophies.

Also it's off topic but I'm sure you'll hear about it soon. You were in today's episode of South Park. It was the second part of a storyline that has the kids choosing sides between the Xbox One and PS4 and how they will go to war on Black Friday to reach the front of the line.

Some of the kids seek your help and go to your home. And let's just say you're a little obsessed with wieners.

South Park
I, like many of your fans, am curious of your take on the latest "South Park" episode/s. Your warm sense of humor as shown on the "Conan" show has to be flaring at this moment. I know "South Park" has a "take no prisoners" kind of attitude towards people in the limelight and obviously they have a familiarity with your work in order to make fun. It was good spirited in my opinion. A fan boy being sardonic and crass for the sake of humor and its own viewership.
Anyways, I was just curious if you have an opinion or a thought on the matter. If you haven't yet seen it. I understand there can't be a comment. Thanks for your amazing works. You are at true artist that makes amazing worlds and characters. The very fact that you created so much interesting material,makes any caricature of your work almost endearing to me. Thanks, and I'll shut up now. Enjoy the Australian continent. I hear it's lovely.

This was truly wonderful. I didn't think I'd enjoy this so much. It was funny and really interesting! Thank you for sharing!
