Coming to Spain (Still More)

Here are the details on my signing in Granada on July 25:

Librería Nostromo
C/ Buensuceso, 1 - Granada
Tlf: 958 523 818

from 18.00h to 21.00h

I also have the specifics for my appearances in Gijon at Semana Negra.

Saturday, July 12
6:00 pm -- introduction of Corominas' art book of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE

Sunday July 13
7:00 pm -- panel w/ Scott Bakker and Paco Ignacio Taibo II
9:00 pm -- Q&A chat with my translator, Cristina Macia

Those are my only official events at Semana Negra, but I will be arriving on July 11 on the Black Train, and leaving on July 15. In between, you'll often find me at the festival, signing at the Gigamesh booth, listening to the other panels, riding the rides, drinking sangria on the fairway (will the chicken be back, I wonder?), and eating midnight dinners like the Spanish seem to do. Parris and I love to meet my readers, so if you're there in Gijon, don't be shy about coming up and saying hi.

That's in July, though. Right now it's still June and I have one day left before I leave, so I had better cut this short. Things are getting frantic, as they always do before a trip.

Have fun! (and come to Japan next ;)
Jun. 21st, 2008 05:54 am (UTC)
have fun and return home safely (please)

I'll be at Nostromo in Granada :D
I'm glad you like sangría, it's a perfect beverage on Summer ;)
About dinners, we usually eat around 21,30. I guess the timetable changes when you are at Semana Negra (it's not uncommon for dinners with many people to start at 22,00-22,30 and leave around 1 am).
Anyway, I hope you have a great time around Spain.

Wow. It's SO cool of you to set up journals in order to abuse an author. It's so amazing you won't even risk your real identity to say nasty things to people. I'm guessing you're the complete idiot who posted on the previous entry.

What a coward. Please fall off the face of the earth.

Have a great trip! And come to England soon? =)

Have fun!

Wish I could come over - Spain has enough Roman and Mediaeval ruins to have an excuse, but my purse doesn't allow for two major trips a year, alas.

If the Spanish have such late dinners (which would suit a nightowl like me prefectly, btw), do they sleep long in the morning as well?

Dinning too late?

Well, think it the other way round... Why people outside Spain have lunch and dinner sooo early? :D

A hint: on Winter, the sun rises around eight and sets around six, and on Summer, rises before seven and sets past ten in the evening ;)

Mr. Martin, I would humbly submit to you that you ought ignore those silly continentals for a bit and come to enjoy some of lovely Belfast's fine summer* in all of it's natural majesty and splendour!

*Pursuant to the rules of Irish hospitality umbrellas, scarves, and stout will be provided.

fun and safe trip to you and Parris
Have an awesome time in Spain Martin, your the best!

oh and by the way is there a chance of seeing you in the DC area anytime this year or next year?!

I hope the panel with Bakker goes well; he's a fascinating guy.

Maybe you can find this useful:

I hope you have a wonderful trip and the airlines are kind to you. :)

At first I read that you were _singing_ in Granada, and that was somewhat surprising. "Is there anything that man can't do??"

Dear G. R. R.,
I really think you're one of the best science-fiction and fantasy writer of the "Common Era". But (because obviously there is a "but"), I also really think you should stop on one thing and finish it. You know what I mean.


P.S. - Sorry, I didn't want to misuse your blog for such kinds of posts, but because I know you read this posts, I thought it the only possible way to tell you directly what I think.
Jul. 10th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
You're kidding, right? I'm gonna step out from lurking on this, cos this kind of stinking thinking is really getting under my skin these days.

Do you really believe that creativity one of those things you expect people to turn on & off like a water tap on demand.

Get a grip... you go into any working painters, sculptors, seamstress, or any other kind of creative artists studio and you will see not just one, but maybe even dozens of projects in various stages of progress and development. When musicians of all stripes go on tour, they are leaving some of their studio projects unfinished so they can earn their bread and butter that fuels the 'studio' time. When writers tour, certainly there is the pleasure of visiting interesting places and eating good food and enjoying folk's hospitality, but the writer is still promoting his/her works to their far flung audiences including publishing houses and fans.

I think your thinking is petty, immature and churlish. I think you (and anyone else who has twitted George like this) ought to get down on your bony knees and apologize. Your taking him to task was beyond rude and YOU did MISUSE the blog for this.

ADwD Question
Considering your scheduled appearances for the rest of the year, including your absence over the next few months, when do you expect to complete ADwD?

ASoIaF appears to have slipped in your list of priorities given your numerous other projects and travels and as such the multiple year gaps between books appear to have become the rule. Are the subsequent volumes well enough conceptualized so as to provide a more timely release schedule or do you envision similar gaps?

Thank you. Enjoy your vacation.

Re: ADwD Question
I ain't GRRM, but I've seen him answer this question enough times to know that his answer would probably be along the lines of, "It's impossible to tell." Remember that A Sword of Storms, the longest book in the series, took the shortest amount of time to write, which seems counterinstinctive, but it's just how it turned out.

As a fan and based on prior experience, I'd say that it could be 3-4 years apiece for each one, and if it's less than that, than that's a bonus. If it's more, so be it. Plenty of other authors to read in the meantime.
