George R.R. Martin coming to Australia

Recommended Posts

I'm sure many Australians are aware by now that George R.R. Martin and Peter Dinklage will be attending Supanova in Brisbane and Adelaide this November, but they will also be making appearances in Melbourne and Sydney:
Supanova's Website.

Personally, I'll be seeing them in both Melbourne and Adelaide.
Now, which book should I ask them to sign?

Heyoooo! Never actually been to one of these before, how are they? I'm glad GRRM is signing for free cause $100 for a photo with Peter Dinklage is out of my price range...:(

As to your question I have no idea haha maybe AGOT??

I read a news release on Dow Jones Factiva a couple days ago that Peter Dinklage has "postponed" the trip as he is committed to filming "Rememory" in Canada. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) will substitute for the two events.

hello,

next week i will meet big george at supanova festival in brisbane... i wonder if there is anything i have to know (like the fact you can't ask him about the relase date of the next book), but what about pictures and other things?
he seems a very nice guy to me, but is always better to be prepared! any suggestions?

Try to avoid questions about Winds of Winter as a whole I reckon, if he wants to talk about it he'll do it on his own terms i suspect.

Just got back from the signing/Q & A Session. Unfortunately, the Q & A was rather short and GRRM was signing furiously for the rest of the day, so it was difficult enough to get a "Hello" out of him, let alone ask him a question.



At least I have all my HB's signed now :D

Hi All, I attended the talk he gave in Melbourne at the MCG Olympic Room (was fortunate to be in a smaller group talk beforehand too) and he signed my copy of the Pygmalion French edition of the first 2 Dunk and Egg novellas (published in the one volume: "Le Chevalier Errant/ L'Epee Lige"). True, there was very little time to chat but he did ask me if the translation is good to which I replied, yes, I thought so. Interestingly for fans of the D&E novellas: he indicated that there was a new 3 volume reprint of these coming soon, which would be lavishly illustrated by one of the calendar artists (I'm looking forward to that!) and more than once he indicated his determination to write several more of these novellas to continue the whole Dunk and Egg story (after Winds of Winter and Dream of Spring, of course!).


Was also the Wheeler Centre event the evening before that. Michelle Fairley was very charming - both she and GRRM engaged with the audience in a convivial way. I was surprised no one asked her about Lady Stoneheart (in fact there didn't seem to be all that many questions from either the official interviewers or the audience about book characters at all - most of the audience questions related to advice for budding writers and the like, and the interviewers focussed on his overall career). I wanted to ask about how difficult it is to write the GoT episodes compared to writing the books (any tensions felt when working within the different constraints imposed by the needs of TV and the script version of the story, compared to writing his own story)... but, alas, no time!


I really enjoyed the events, though: thank you Mr GRRMartin and Ms Fairley for your valuable time :)
