Home Again... with Ick

I am back home again in Santa Fe, after two weeks on the road in Baltimore and New York City.

Great trip... but I seem to have brought the plague home with me.

Some kind of con crud was going around at Balticon. My assistant Jo was stricken with it, as was my friend Lezli Robyn, though in both cases it did not manifest until after the con. Coughing, fever, headache, congestion, more coughing.

I got it too, albeit a milder case. And then my assistant Lenore was stricken. (So far Parris has been spared, knock wood).

We're all still under the weather, though recovering.

So I will keep this short. Lots to report on, lots to catch up on, but just now I don't have the energy. More sleep and more fluids... I should be my old self shortly....

I figured it all out
Sorry, but it's done. Asoiaf is some time-dimension bending infinitely looping epic story.

Hacking off afflicted parts do sometimes stop the spread of the disease, but not always. Many a man have sacrificed one arm or foot, only to find the other going feverish. Once that happens, hope is gone.

Con crud
Remember, feed a fever, feed a cold, feed every sickness because your body fights with calories not magic.

Remember your words, George. Remember your words.

Feel better!
Oh man. That sickness sounds terribly familiar. My family went through two cases of something like that this year and it seems highly contagious.

Take care of yourself!

All people must cough...
I had that shit last week too, though I'm not any where near NY or Baltimore. Was down for a week, but on the bright side, it gets better. Hope you and yours gets better soon too.

Dude, hot tea, hot chicken soup (with saltine crackers), a hot bath, Vicks vapo-rub on chest and neck (and under nose) and go to bed - you'll feel much better tomorrow.

In the meantime I'll reveal the big news for you: TWoW is coming out after episode 10, so perfect for Summer reading and as a Christmas gift and to absorb before GoT S7 starts next April.

Brienne and Jaime sittin' in a tree (just kidding) ... S7 and S8 to be shot together and then for Christmas 2018 the big movie version - that's when we'll see Dany, Jon and Tyrion on dragonback, Varys riding the Kraken, and the Night's King on the Ice Dragon (oh, and the Red Priests and Priestesses doing their spell stuff)
