I am pleased to report I was able to make it over to the University of Washington bookstore for a signing by George R.R. Martin. The Author of "A song of Ice and Fire". In particular I was able to get all four current books signed! :) Including "A game of Thrones", "A clash of Kings", "A storm of Swords" and "A feast of Crows". Since I went to the trouble of getting all first edition hard backs I was extra pleased. I even managed to get a copy for my brother signed. That is his Christmas present for this year. ;)

Martin did a hour long talk with a question and answer session that was very neat. He had a fun story about how he was out signed by Clifford the big red dog when he went on a signing tour for "A game of Thrones". The questions were on the whole good. Much better then some of the stinkers I have heard at other signings. I think it says something about Martin's readership. :) I love his books and would recommend them all. I do not agree with people who hate the fourth volume.

All in all it was a good night!

The book is #1 on the NY Times bestseller list. Good for George! ^_^

He was entertaining to listen to. And very careful not to let slip any spoilers. Well, except one, but I'm not sure if he was serious there or not.

No but my brother does. ;) I gave it to him as a gift. I see a pattern here.
