GRRM's cryptic location blog post

Recommended Posts

GRRM wrote "that would be telling" under his location. He usually posts he is in Santa Fe or the town when he goes for meetings and cons.

Why would he be cryptic about where he is?

A couple of posts before that one he says he’s taking a break from the Not A Blog for awhile. Maybe he just doesn’t want anyone knowing where he is so he can actually get some work done.

He has said many times that he only writes at home on his DOS PC in Santa Fe.

He does things on his blog. he is a weirdo. we are all waiting with baited breath to get any little sliver of winds info so we try to dissect everything that he writes on it to see if there is something cryptic going on even though he stated unequivocally that when winds is done he will just tell us

I want to believe. I want to believe. It's been seven years since the last book.

I agree. Discussion about delicious popcorn can only feed one for so long ^_^

Considering the travel stuff it might be connected to the Nightflyers series or the GoT sequels. He writes his books at home, and unless he no longer has, you know, internet, he can tell the world from his home that he his finished some book. As he did in the past.

Thats a good idea. Maybe he finally does a cameo and didn't want to spoil it.

Yes, this site mostly consists of weirdos. I tend to quickly click onto some other tab if an adult family member walks by while I'm indulging myself here, out of instinctive embarrassment. I'm a grown ass man, after all, obsessing away about fantasy characters and fake worldbuilding arguments.

There must be a name for this condition. I don't think it's entirely normal.

Did we ever get an explanation for that doom of Valyria, Iron born, revelation post?

Fire and Blood just got a date estimate (and a cover for the German version):  Link

Early October (not finalized). 

So, I'm guessing George is in NY finishing F&B with his publishers.  That's what the location mystery is about imo.

Yes, GRRM may be in NYC meeting with his publishers and submitting the final manuscript for Fire and Blood.

weirdos, nerds, geeks and other names as well, but desperate is the big qualifier for all of them. Remember how awesome it was that he was canceling all his appearances to concentrate on getting the book out by spring 2016?

Wasn't that a song by Sonny & Cher?

Anyway, perhaps GRRM is at home but daren't tell us in case we get over-excited.. either that or he's shacked up with Varys in a rebuilt Tower of Joy, and they've just fixed the wifi and cracked a couple of bottles of shade of the evening
