GRRM in San Diego

I'll be there wearing my BWB Winterfell but Casterly Rocks T-shirt (in order to point out I'm not a Johnny-come-lately). The venue should be crammed. (It was years go, and GRRM's frame has only grown.)

He told me during the one-on-one signing that he had 4 Clarion short stories he had to read after the signing for Thursday's class.
Kathy, If you see this it was nice to chat with you again. See you at the next San Diego GRRM signing.

He also mentioned he wanted to have it finished before starting on his script for Game of Thrones. He ended up finishing his script in April. So I don't know if that is something to get too excited about.
The 1400 pages sounds promising though.

I was mondo lucky and got invited to a dinner party where GRRM was guest of honor. Unfortunately, I was mostly brain dead and didn't ask anything interesting. But HBO-series wise, he is going to be writing one script per season. They are going to attempt one book per season (although GRRM posited that when they hit SoS, it'll have to be split over two seasons). He said that the number of episodes per series isn't necessarily set in stone, so they might be stretching out to 12 episodes later on. I also asked him if having the series dramatized was going to affect how he envisions the characters and he said that was a good question. He thought about it for a second, and then said that there's one actress (they're currently in negotations with, so he couldn't mention the character or the actress's names) who doesn't look anything like the character she auditioned for, but she's so damn good that they want her, and if she does get cast, it's definitely going to have an effect on the how the character gets written in the book.
The only other thing I remember (and it's of no interest to anyone, I just thought it was funny) was that I was burbling on about NTLive and Alan Bennett's The Habit of Art, and GRRM said that they'd tried to get Richard Griffiths for Game of Thrones, but it fell through. I was just joking and said, "Who'd you get instead--Ian McNeice?" and he laughed and said, "Yes, actually."
