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)).

Hi George,

I grew up in Rhode Island and spent my teen years in Providence. Lovecraft's Grave is certainly a good point as is Roger Williams Statue @ Prospect Park. It's a bit too late for the Gondala's I suspect or the Fire Festival Downtown which is something.
When it comes to food, RI standards are NY system (I know right?) Hot Weiners (Veal Link with seasoned ground beef, onion, mustard and celery salt) and Stuffies (Stuffed Quoahog)!Crab Cakes and Choweder of course and we all grew up on Coffee Milk so you cant go wrong getting a Coffee Cabinet (Milkshake)

I just made myself really hungry! ;)

You really must be from RI with all the talk of Stuffies and hot wieners and coffee milk! No one believed me about coffee milk until I had my family send me some Autocrat for proof!
