GRRM is Coming to France & Switzerland

Hey all you European Fans, GRRM is officially on his way to France tomorrow, he will be signing books at the lovely Librairier Grangier bookstore in Dijon from 2PM -6PM on Thursday July 3rd.




Then after a short visit in France, it's off to beautiful Switzerland and the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival, or NIFFF, which GRRM will be attending from July 5th to July 12th.  During this wonderfully weird event highlighting fantastic films from all over the world they will feature three movies personally picked by George,  Hitchcock's PSYCHO, CASABLANCA and of course the forever classic FORBIDDEN PLANET.  GRRM will be introducing all three of these features and giving a short speech as to the influence these particular films had on him.

GRRM will also be hosting a panel about being an author, working in television and the overall adaptation process.  The Panel is listed as the Writer's Room at NIFFF and is being scheduled for Monday the 7th of July at 2PM.

There will also be a signing session for fans during NIFFF it beings at 2PM on Sunday July 12th.

Please visit NIFFFs website for more details on all the fun happening in Neuchâtel this July.



This Announcement has been brought to you by the Minions of Fevre River…. :)

Dear George,

Hope all is going well with your trip to Europe so far. I know you're back for Loncon and Shamrokon in August. I'd love to attend on a day you're at Shamrokon. Do you know what day you'll be there? Are you signing books at these conventions?

Re: Shamrokon.
Not sure I will be at Shamrokcon. Depends on the Emmys.

I was there
Thank you for coming, I am from Dijon and it was a huge surprise to see you coming in my lovely little city ! I wish I could have told you things but I was, well.... star struck :) so thank you thank you again !! And thank you for all your amazing female characters and your disabled characters, they are so important. Though I could not say it out loud.

Seven Kingdoms, Third Person
Even though I know you didn't, I imagined you writing this in the third person and it made me smile. Safe travels!

Forbidden Planet
I always mistake it for Fantastic Planet. Now I'm going to have to rent it!

Also, you should toss out some restaurant recommendations upon your return! You go to so many interesting cities, I'd like to here your take on some of the local eateries!

movie intros
Would you please post your intros to the movies? CASABLANCA is one of my favorites, and I'd be interested in hearing how it influenced you, much like I'm enjoying the material in DREAMSONGS on your developing career.

Psycho lives on
I think Hitchcock really captured lightning in a bottle with Psycho; a low that brilliantly displays a taut atmosphere with little more than angles and lighting. Not to mention, of course, they...(SPOILER)

...kill the main character 1/3 of the way into the story. Anyway, cheers George, make sure to allow time for some fun.

Mr. Martin! Was that you?
This has nothing to do with your post, I apologize.

On June 21 we went to Trader Joe's in Santa Fe. Our toddler was banging on a can of TJ's coffee and squawking, and I was getting a wine sample. A guy who looked a lot like you commented on my toddler's drumming skills. He was wearing a Bubonicon t shirt. My first thought was that it was YOU, but I didn't want to be all "Hey are you GRRM??" if he was NOT you. Because that would be a little crazy. Also, I have seen doppelgangers of you in SF before who turned out to not be you upon closer, surreptitious inspection.

After we left my husband said that it was definitely you.

It is now driving me insane wondering if it was you or not. So if it was you, could you please confirm?

I'm a fan, and have been since Game of Thrones. I love your books and the TV series! Every new ASOIAF book that has come out I have stayed up pretty much all night trying to finish it in one night. Doesn't usually work out too well for me.

Sorry to post this here, I wasn't sure where else to post it and I am really curious.

At any rate, have a great European tour!

response to "you'll die before you finish"
Saw part of your interview where you responded to the question of "some people speculate you'll die before you finish."

You're response was milder then it could have been but very appropriate in my opinion. Bravo Mr. Martin, Bravo!

Hope the trip was pleasant otherwise.

Just saw your interview in Switzerland. your true fans feel the same for and about you and we're glad to see you respond the way we do on your behalf. Hugs! Also, not only are you a brilliant writer but you and Parris are fantastic Hero's to a noble and beautiful cause for Wolves. xoxo

Aww, I wish I lived in France so I could see you! Can't wait until you swing by LA again.

Sorry to be off-topic, but can you tell us if Arianne is going to be in season 5 of GOT? We've seen casting calls for a ton of (awesome) Dorne characters, but many of us are concerned as we've heard nothing about Arianne. She's my favorite Martell, so I'd really love to see her onscreen.

I was planning to come to the festival for the signing session of GRRM (fortunately I live near there :D), but I was wondering, is it necessary to buy some tickets only for the signing session?

Thank you :D

I'm interested in hearing your opinion about those 3 movies. I don't see any video online about the 3 featured movies and your speech.

Also, do you have any favorite sci fi movies of recent memory specifically from the year 2000 and above. Good sci fi seems hard to come by in mainstream hollywood.

Killing it at the Grangier. I saw a video of the book signing and wish I knew more French so I could follow the interactions. Some things are universal, however. One-finger salutes! lol
