George RR Martin and the FDO™
Okay, I'm sold on Comic-Con. ARealGirl and I were having a nice little Junkie meet-up at Players Sports Bar in San Diego. People start coming into the bar loaded with George RR Martin books -- turns out he's doing a signing at Mysterious Galaxy Books in the same strip mall. I've done a few signings at Mysterious Galaxy (a rockin' store), so we zipped on over. I got my book signed and got to say "hi." Last time I met George was seven years ago. I was unpublished and on a panel with him. So much has changed since then. He has copies of THE ROOKIE and THE STARTER, but I don't think he's read them yet (thanks to BigJohn for making that connection). 

Quite a thrill to shake the man's hand, I'm a big fan. So, sold on Comic-Con! I'll be back next year.

it's always

nice to get to meet one of your favorite authors and get a book signed by them.

Confession

I have an embarrassing confession: I have all Scotts books but have only read the Dragonmoon Ancestor edition.

but I have listened to all of the podcasts several times each. Does that seem right to you?

 

You think things are rough in the GFL? Try being a dwarf in turtle armor riding a 7 ton t-Rex into a death match.

I didn't read the whole post; my bad for assuming it was the same as the Facebook post. D'oh!

Wow, that is AWESOME that you were on a panel with him! That's so cool.

Hey there Scott you know what Athanas has a valid point

You're either trying to take his wallet or you're giving Mr. Martin a nice back massage. So which one were you doing at the time of the picture
