Carrie, Carrie, Carrie

We had a fun afternoon with Carrie Vaughn today at the Jean Cocteau. Talked about new book, MARTIANS ABROAD, about Old Mars and New Mars and Podkayne and Heinlein, about her bestselling Kitty Norville series, about her contributions to Wild Cards.

If you missed it, have no fear. We taped it, and plan to upload a streaming video soon.

Before she left, of course, we made her sign lots and lots of books for us, so if you're looking for an autographed copy of MARTIANS ABROAD or any of her earlier books, or a hardcover of INSIDE STRAIGHT signed by both Carrie and yours truly, you need look no further than the JCC bookshop.

Check out these and other signed books at http://jeancocteaucinema.com/product-category/author/

Books Books Everywhere!
I'm going to go broke. I looked into Stephen Leigh and picked up Assassins Dawn. Stumbled upon Fevre Dream picked that up too and now I can feel Martians Abroad calling my name. I enjoy these posts even if my wallet can't handle them. Keep them coming!

Just a thought...
Every time I get a notification like this one, I immediately think of "Carrie" the Stephen King novel. It's crazy how certain words elicit automatic thoughts! Have a good week ! MaryEllen

I know that you don't like to talk about ASoIaF on your LiveJournal, and I wouldn't be upset if you ignored this comment, but I was wondering if you could answer a question of mine about the books.

I have been reading a series of theory essays concerning the "Deep Ones" mentioned in the World of Ice and Fire companion book. The series is basically about the origins of the Deep Ones and their lost society, as well as the marks they have left behind on Planetos in the wake of their disappearance.

When I read the WoIaF, I considered the Deep Ones to simply be great a great piece of worldbuilding and nothing more. However, upon my community re-read I came across numerous references to the Deep Ones, particularly in A Feast for Crows.

My question is born out of curiosity, and I would take any kind of response you would be willing to give, whether it be a confirmation, a debunking, or even a cryptic "keep reading".

Will the Deep Ones play any role in the main storyline, or is it nothing but clever world-building?

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I'm sorry if I've frustrated you with this question. I love your books, and I am patiently awaiting the arrival of The Winds of Winter.

Re: Winds
No, I don't see the Deep Ones rising to trouble the people of Westeros, as amusing as the idea might be.

I don't expect any of my characters to make it to Carcosa either.

Sometimes I just like to have a little fun.

I agree with all of you. I have so many new things to read since finding these posts. I had not heard of Carrie but am excited to start reading one of her books. Which would be the best to start with?

Fevre Dream is amazing! I found it right when I went to spend a year near the Mississippi River. I was definitely more excited to be there right after reading it.

Star Wars question
You said Rogue One is the best Star Wars film since The Empire Strickes Backs. I have to say that I like it very much, and I thibk is one of the beest Star Wars films too, but I'd like to know what do you think about the episode III The Revenge of the Sith, because I think is a great movie, at leats as good as the "mean" of the original trilogy...

Thanks for taping it. I look forward to watching it.

It would be wonderful if more of your readings and talks at the theater could be posted online.
