New York, New York... and Providence Too

October has arrived, the leaves are turning, and I am headed east.

The U.S. hardcover of THE WORLD OF ICE & F IRE is scheduled for release on October 28, and Bantam is bringing me to New York to help launch it.

WOIAF cover

I will be making an appearance on the Seth Meyers show on Tuesday, October 28 and doing an event at the 92nd street Y with Laura Miller on Sunday,October 26.

Tickets for the latter are still available, but they are going fast, so if you want one, move quickly. I will be signing a thousand copies of THE WORLD OF ICE & FIRE for the Y, and the ticket price will include the autographed book.

((Sorry, no plans for other signings while in the city)).

I will also be turning up in Providence, Rhode Island on this trip. Brown University is honoring me with the Harris Literary Collection Award, and I'll be attending a dinner there on October 23 to accept. My friend Tom Doherty, esteemed publisher of Tor Books, is also being honored. It will be a real delight to share the journey, and the moment, with Tom. Brown students will have first dibs on tickets to that one, I am told... I'll add a link here as soon as I have one.

((Never been to Providence before, aside from speeding through it on the Acela. If I have time, I will try to make a pilgrimage to H.P. Lovecraft's grave, which I believe is required of anyone who has ever written horror)).

Song of Remembrance
"Se você pensa que as Gêmeas não remoem uma ofensa
Convido-lhe a pensar no que aconteceu
Com Aquele que com outra se casou

Pense bem antes de ir contra Elas uma vez
Pois será a última vez
Que o Sol brilhará para você

E então se lembre dessa Canção
Pois ela é um aviso permanente
Para quem tenta a traição"

"If you think that the Twins cud not an offense
I invite you to think about what happened
Him who with another married

Think twice before going against since they
It will be the last time
That the sun will shine for you

And then remember this Song
Because it is a permanent warning
For those trying to treason"

Canção da Lembrança
