Me and Ryan

For all those who can't seem to get enough of me talking... and were not able to make our COLONY event at the Jean Cocteau Cinema... IGN has uploaded a video of my conversation with COLONY's co-creator Ryan Condal.

Have a look... and do check out the show. It's good.

Re: Sci-fi
For my own stuff... if you like short stories, dream DREAMSONGS, my retrospective collection. It has most of my best SF shorts in it.

Other people? Alfred Bester THE STARS MY DESTINATION. Roger Zelazny LORD OF LIGHT. Robert A. Heinlein THE PUPPET MASTERS. Ursula K. Le Guin THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS. Samuel R. Delany NOVA. And Jack Vance. The Demon Prince series (5 books) is amazing.

Mr. Martin, I know you've been asked at length about comparisons between Tolkien fantasy and your own version and you've mentioned that most fantasy has followed the good versus evil characterization; the black and white depiction within a story. What other fantasy writers would you recommend that have added that bit of 'grey' the way you have within ASOIAF, as well as the depth you have secured in your characters, their histories and the world they live in?

Try Daniel Abraham. Patrick Rothfuss. Scott Lynch.

Have you ever considered writing a story where you pour everything in fantasy you are not that fond of, like the dark lord, ultimate good vs ultimate evil, chosen one, magic sword, cursed forest and so on, and adds your own twist on it, just to get it out of the system?

Re: Sci-fi
Thanks I appreciate the response, hopefully I will find this new genre interesting, especially if it's anything to the caliber of ASOIAF.
