Home Alone

Well, not really alone. Parris is here, and my minions, and the Cocteau staff, and the cats... but I am not in San Diego at Comicon, and I have to admit, that feels strange.

Staying home was the right decision. I just got back from Chicago and the Dead shows, and before that it was Europe, and it is hardly as if HBO needed me in San Diego to represent... not with so much of our cast on hand. I have so much work to do, I am way behind on everything, and I have a wedding to attend in Jersey in a few weeks, and worldcon after that... and if truth be told, San Diego has gotten overwhelming in recent years. There are always good times catching up with friends, and hanging with the cast, but it's not as if I can walk the floor anymore and look for old comic books, the way I once did.

Even so... even so... it does make me a little sad, not being there.

Anyway, those of you who are there, be sure and catch THE EXPANSE premiere. I wish I could. Everything I've seen suggests that it will be a terrific show. The books were certainly great. Say hi to Daniel and Ty for me.

You might also visit the Random House booth to buy a calendar, and drop by the Tor/ Macmillan booth to buy a stack of books and show your support.

You may think you're home alone George, but Conan is watching:

Thanks
George,

Sorry for the off topic post, but I wanted to send a quick (cheezy) thank you. Your novels rekindled my interest in reading after about a 10 year slumber, and now I write POV style short stories for my two young daughters every few months (they love them). ASOIAF was directly responsible for all this, so thanks. Can't wait for the next book.

PS. Please let Stannis win the battle :)

I'm sure you could ask someone to look for Comic Books for you, but that takes all the fun out of looking through all the books and the pleasure and excitement when you find just the one you've been searching for.

I know how much I treasure my own anonymity that allows me to stroll, shop and visit any place I choose. I'm sorry that is no longer available for you.

With each passing day we are all poked in the jaw with the reality that life provides us an infinite amount of trade offs.......

Show reviews?
So what did you think? Seriously? Not sure what type of couple you two are or the friends you go to shows with, but I can't stand people comparing shows to the yesteryears...here's how I look at it, any time I see them, its fresh energy and its new. I love it and doing any comparisons serve to escape the moment and lose touch with the magic you are experiencing.

I'm jelous dude, been living in Austria for a year and of course, this happens. Ah well, DVD will come out so I will try to throw a end of the year party and live it up.

Side note, your thoughts on the bobby documentary? Very very good.

Home Alone
George, being home alone isn't so bad, it gives you time to sharpen your swords. I would gladly go to Comic Con on your behalf but, I don't know what comic books you like... I drove by your ranch in NM a few weeks ago and thought that you could shoot much of GoT there. I live in Colorado, and I can see from the highway the remoteness of your ranch. It is much like a wilderness area, I'm sure you enjoy that. I love to get out to the remote wilderness areas and hike around and stuff, much fun... I get ideas in my head when I am out like that and I have to remember to write them down or I forget when I get back to civilization.. I like to hang out around Leadville, it's really remote and there are bears. Lions too. I met Goose Gossage in the Safeway there once. Well I just wanted to say Hello and yes Imma fan. I'll send you a hello once in a while and, if you get to Denver I'd love to meet you. Thanks for everything George.

Gilbert...

Thanks, but I am not doing interviews just now, and I never do email interviews.

Maybe when WINDS OF WINTER is done.

Good luck with your website.

I feel ya
Hard to miss out on all those good times.
Hope the good work gets done. Good friends always fill you in on what you missed. It's gonna more crazy there than last year anyway. So much going on.

This year I had to choose Anime Expo over ComiCon for work reasons. It's the first year in awhile my wife and I didn't make CC :( my work table has 4 pages to ink and 6 pages to penci for me! Hahaha work is never done.

you could walk the floor of Comicon unobstructed by cosplaying as the Thing or a Ninja Turtle.

Couldn't you just say you're cosplaying as George RR Martin and still wander about?

I've never been lucky enough to go to Comic Con, but I do hear there are guys who cosplay as you. It could even be like those stories about how some celebrity entered a look-a-like contest and lost.

It's going to be my first ever Worldcon, and I'm going as staff for my uncle. Any tips or recommendations for a first timer?

Worldcons are very different than comicon, and much much smaller, but they can still be exhausting. Pace yourself, wear comfortable shoes... and remember, the best part is the parties at night.

Who is your uncle, and what will be your function as his staff?

To my hero:
Hello, George!

I know this is really not the place to ask such questions, but I have to know...did "A Clockwork Orange" have any influence at all on a certain illegitimate member of House Bolton? A simple yes or no will suffice.
