Signed Books

We had a pleasant surprise last night at the Jean Cocteau when Elizabeth Bear and Scott Lynch dropped by for a short visit.

Of course, we immediately took advantage of their presence by making them sign books.

So... for as long as the supply lasts, which will not be long... we have hardcovers of ROGUES signed by Scott, and hardcovers of OLD VENUS signed by Elizabeth.

Rogues comp A March 17 lo resOld Venus final jkt

Of course, I've autographed both of these as well... and the copies of ROGUES on hand also have signatures from another contributor, Walter Jon Williams.

Also, from the day before, we have copies of THE DOLL COLLECTION, autographed by editor Ellen Datlow and contributors Jeffrey Ford and Stephan Graham Jones.


All of these, and many other titles, can be ordered from the Jean Cocteau bookshop at:

Happy reading.

a question thats been on my mind for quite a while
Dear George,
you often said in interviews that you started working on ASOIAF in 91 when you wrote the first chapter of AGOT though you didnt know what you had back then. You also said many times that you "knew you were doomed when you draw the map".
Can you give us a little insight on what happened between those two events? When did the Lannisters come into play, when Daenerys? Whats going on in a mind like yours after finishing that first chapter?
Being able to create this enormous world fascinates many people including me so I would really like to know some of the steps that took place between finishing that first chapter and drawing the map.
For example did you at some point just go like "you know what? actually i think i need another story line" and then create Stannis? Or was it all there from the start? (stannis is just one of many examples here, you dont have to go into detail on him)
I really admire your creativity so I'd love to have a little tiny insight :)
have a good day!

Not very likely.

Making an awful day better
Had a truly terrible day at work (i'm a lecturer in a college in austerity Britain) and saw GRRMs twitter post about the books, so have ordered a signed storm of swords to cheer myself up.

Thanks George, a small lance of light through some black clouds

Any updates on more copies of the hardcover Lands of Ice and Fire?

Cool. I haven't seen scott_lynch online - mostly because he probably doesn't post on Livejournal these days. But I see him and Elizabeth at CONvergence.

I have to say, it make me wish I lived in Santa Fe, and I love Seattle!

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms publication date
This post about your recent books reminded me of your upcoming A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, so I looked for a publication date on your website and saw that it's coming out on August 6, 2015. I seem to remember you saying it would be released in October--can you confirm which is correct? Hoping for August!

Re: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms publication date
October is correct.

Old Mars
Does anyone know why there is no Audiobook version of Old Mars? It seems like the other anthologies have audiobooks but Old Mars is conspicuously absent from Audible.

Damned if I know.

Old Venus and the Science Fiction genre

I hope this finds you well. Right out of the gate, should I buy Old Venus? I suppose I should have at least looked up its description prior to this question but I see it on your site so often; spur of the moment. I'm getting into a science fiction kick and know you are quite the SyFy aficionado. Maybe some suggestion of your favorites?

Hey, thanks for ASOIAF. Adore it, bought and read anything related to it. Dunk and Egg is dope, thrilled for the next additions. I'm saving a vacation day for the 12:00 release of TWOW.

Good luck!

In my experience as a legal writer, great writing is a product of hating everything you've written that isn't great. Eventually you reach a state of peace. How much of the material you're proudest of comes from the first draft, and how much from touchups and line edits? Is it hard to let go?
